Radiology

Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute is renowned for its state-of-the-art healthcare services, and the Department of Radiology stands as a Pillar of this institution. With a team of highly skilled radiologists and advanced imaging technology, the department plays a vital role in providing precise diagnoses, guiding treatments, and contributing to overall excellence in patient care.

The Institute is equipped with a comprehensive range of advanced imaging modalities. This includes X-rays, CT scans, MRI, ultrasound, mammography, and nuclear medicine. Each modality serves a unique purpose, allowing for a detailed evaluation of different anatomical structures and physiological processes within the body.

Key Functions of the Radiology Department:

  • X-ray: X ray imaging remains a fundamental tool in medical diagnosis and is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. It uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the body’s internal structures. They are often used to help diagnose fractured bones, look for injury or infection and locate foreign objects. Some X-ray exams may use an iodine based contrast material or barium to help improve the visibility of specific organs, blood vessels, tissues or bone.
  • USG: USG has expanded medical imaging well beyond the traditional radiology setting – a combination of portability, low cost and ease of use makes ultrasound imaging an indispensable tool for radiologists as well as for other medical professionals who need to obtain imaging diagnosis or guide a therapeutic intervention quickly and efficiently. It is commonly used in obstetrics for monitoring fetal development.
  • Computed Tomography (CT): A CT scan combines a uses of X-ray images taken from different angles around the body & uses computer processing to create cross sectional images of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside the body. It provides more detailed information than plain X-rays do. A CT Scan has many uses, but it’s particularly well suited to quickly examine patient who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body & is used to diagnose diseases or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment. 
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI uses a powerful magnetic field, radiowaves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the body’s internal structures that are cleaner, more detailed and more likely in some instances to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods. MRI is non invasive and does not use ionizing radiation. It may also be used to monitor an unborn child in the womb.
  • Mammography: Mammography is a specialized medical imaging that uses a low dose X-ray system to see inside the breast which aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Mammograms are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms.
  • Interventional Radiology: Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute is equipped with advanced Interventional Radiology facilities. This branch of radiology involves minimally invasive procedures guided by imaging technology. Interventional radiologists use techniques like angiography, embolization, and biopsy to diagnose and treat a range of conditions.
  • Emergency Radiology: Role of radiologists in the emergency department is to provide crucial support to emergency medicine physician helping to ensure that patients receive the highest quality of care in a timely and effective manner.

FAQ

Radiology is a medical specialty that uses various imaging techniques to visualize the inside of the body. It helps diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions by producing detailed images of bones, organs, tissues, and blood vessels.

Radiology employs various techniques, including X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography (PET), among others, to capture images from different perspectives.

Radiology can assist in diagnosing a wide range of conditions, including fractures and bone abnormalities, tumors, infections, internal bleeding, heart and vascular diseases, and neurological disorders. It's an invaluable tool for many medical specialties.

Generally, radiology procedures are considered safe when performed by trained professionals using appropriate techniques. The benefits of accurate diagnosis and treatment often outweigh the small risks associated with exposure to ionizing radiation (as in X-rays and CT scans).

No, not all radiology procedures require contrast agents. Contrast agents, such as iodine-based substances for CT scans or gadolinium-based substances for MRI, are used to enhance the visibility of certain structures or blood vessels in the body. They are administered as needed for specific examinations.
