Our Department of Imaging is one of our busiest patient facilities, performing more than 25,000 Digital X-Rays, ultrasound procedures and CT examinations every year. It received ISO 9001: 2015 certification and undertakes a wide range of diagnostic tests with the latest technology.
Our reception desk is well attended and the staff is attentive and efficient and briefs patients and their relatives on the preparation required for various tests.
A digital X-ray is an electronic image of a normal X-ray. One of the main advantages over a conventional X-ray is that a digital X-ray image can be manipulated and then enhanced. A digital image is obtained using a regular X-ray machine but for a patient, it means reduced exposure to radiation, marked improvement in image quality and a more precise diagnosis as multiple images can be obtained from a single exposure.
Emergency facilities are available for in-patients, out-patients and emergency cases. Except for emergency cases, tests are performed only with an appointment.
You may make an appointment either in person or by calling the following numbers:
Reports are available usually the same evening for all tests performed before 12 noon. For tests performed after 12 noon, reports are available on the next working day. Reports may be collected from the Reports Collection Desk.
