RADIOLOGY IMAGING SERVICES

Radiology Imaging Services

Utilizing products of advanced technology, Radiology departments of Avenue Healthcare are capable of performing all diagnostic and invasive radiologic procedures.
Diagnostic and Examination Services:
Radiologists of Avenue Hospital Parklands have broad experience and knowledge to perform diagnostic procedures such as general radiology, computerized tomography ( Ct Scan ), mammography, panoramic x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI), ultrasonography,
Doppler ultrasonography and angiography; as well as invasive therapeutic procedures. Patients remain under Radiologist supervision throughout all diagnostic and treatment procedures.
Our radiology department has the technological infrastructure to perform "telemedicine" applications. "Telemedicine" applications enable transferring digital images among medical centers in different countries via the internet; allowing information exchange and consultation among physicians.

Our Radiology and Imaging services include;

Imaging Examinations
We perform the full range of conventional imaging studies of all organs and systems in the human body. Conventional radiography is the most widely applied imaging method. It is fast and easy to implement. It is used as the very first diagnostic tool for a wide range of diseases – inflammatory ones, traumas, tumors and the like.
X-ray roentgenography is yet another method of conventional X-ray examination where the image is obtained on a diagnostic monitor in real time. This type of assay is used for refining the pathological processes in various projections, as well as for examining the cavities and the moving organs. All images are obtained under the direct supervision of a physician-radiologist. Common usage of X-rays
X-rays are used in the medical diagnostic imaging to visualize the various parts of the body. This is a valuable tool for diagnosis and monitoring of many diseases such as arthritis, degenerative spine diseases, pneumonia, bronchitis and even cancer. By means of different techniques, Avenue Hospital Parklands uses X-rays to help your doctor properly diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases. With the use of digital X-ray equipment, the examination takes only a few minutes.

Computed tomography scan is a painless examination that provides the doctor to look at organs and structures that can not be visualized using the conventional X-ray methods. The scanner receives image data received from different angles around the body, and after the computer processing of the data it shows the cross-section of body tissues and organs.

What is a CT of the body?
CT of the whole body specifically makes assessment of the thorax, abdomen and the pelvic areas. CT scanning uses sophisticated computerized x-ray equipment to produce cross images, allowing a detailed assessment of the anatomy and pathology. Oral and intravenous contrast medium is often used to distinguish the various structures and organs located in those areas.
What is a CT screening scan of the lung?
This test identifies the lung cancer and other lung diseases long before they cause symptoms. It can also detect lung damage because of smoking, contaminants or previous pulmonary infection or disease. Using this technology, one can detect early stage of lung cancer, otherwise invisible to the ongoing regular radiographs of the lung. This test is suitable for people at high risk of lung cancer, such as current or former smokers, and those with severe exposure to tobacco smoke or other lung damages as a result of higher occupational risks. In case of no symptoms, such a screening test can be performed without having a physician’s prescription.
What is a Neuro CT?
The Neuro CT specifically addresses the central nervous system and its related structures by providing images of the head and spine. The CT of the sinuses in the diagnosis of infections of the sinuses, CT of the brain due to headache or CT of the inner ear due to hearing loss are just some of the diagnostic applications of the Neuro CT. Our specialized neurorentgenologists are able to offer comprehensive and qualified interpretation and evaluation.

Avenue Hospital Parklands Imaging Diagnostics Department has one of its kind in Philips 1.5 Tesla Digital MRI device allowing the production of images with higher resolution at significantly shortened period of the study.
What is MRI?
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. It is an advanced technology that uses a large magnet and radio waves thus providing for your doctor information about the state of the brain, spine, internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, etc. without the use of x-rays, pain or surgery. MRI can provide for your doctor the possibility of early detection of diseases or injuries so that proper treatment can be initiated as soon as possible. The MRI study is very safe and there are no harmful effects known of. It is important to know that MRI does not expose the patient to radiation and is completely painless. Why should a patient undergo a MRI test?
The MRI provides highly detailed images of the body that can not be obtained by other imaging tests. The MRI can provide early detection of a very wide variety of conditions, so that the treatment can be more effective. The excellent quality of the magnetic resonance images can provide the best possible information if surgery is required. In case there are abnormalities, the MRI can show their location, size and span.
How long will the scanning take?
It usually takes between 15 and 40 minutes. If your doctor has recommended scan of more than one area of study the durating will be longer.

A Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. A regular ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images, but can't show blood flow.
