Radioloy

Diagnostic radiology is one of the most important pillars of accurate and integrated health services; the hospital is keen on acquiring low-frequency radiation devices to reduce radiation doses the patient is exposed to, as per the world medical recommendations on safety and security standards and rates.

 

Techniques used:

Radiograph (X-ray):

X-rays helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. X-rays involve exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.

CT Scan:

The hospital has an advanced tomography device from General Electric, equipped with 16 slices. It is characterized by high-speed in radiological tests with reduction of radiation rates in a way unavailable in similar devices. The device offers arteries CT scans, enabling physicians to conduct interventional radiology tests accurately.

 

Ultrasound

 

The hospital provides high-quality diagnostic services through a number of triple and quadruple ultrasound imaging devices for the detection of gynecological, internal, cardiac, vascular pathogens and others.

 

Mammography

 

The hospital has one of the most accurate digital mammography devices for early detection of breast cancer to help women discovering tumors before the appearance of first symptoms in a period up to three years in many cases.

Panoramic Dental X-Ray

  • A panoramic x-ray is a common examination conducted by dentists and oral surgeons during daily works and an important diagnostic tool.
  • It covers a wider area than a conventional intraoral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the nasal area, sinuses, maxillary, tooth positioning, and periodontal and jawbone disorders.
  • This examination is also used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, implants and extractions.
  • The presence of an existing or potential problem may be also detected such as:
    • Advanced periodontal disease
    • Oral cysts
    • Tumors and oral cancer
    • Impacted teeth
    • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
