  • CT Scan


    Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation.

    CT is used in medicine as a diagnostic tool and as a guide for interventional procedures. Sometimes contrast materials such as intravenous iodinated contrast are used. This is useful to highlight structures such as blood vessels that otherwise would be difficult to delineate from their surroundings. Using contrast material can also help to obtain functional information about tissues. CT is excellent for detecting both acute and chronic changes in the different body parts.

    Different types of Computed tomography (CT)

    High resolution CT (HRCT) is normally done with thin section with skipped areas between the thin sections and is mainly useful to detect abnormalities of lung.

    Pulmonary angiogram - (CTPA) is a medical diagnostic test used to diagnose pulmonary embolism (PE). It employs computed tomography to obtain an image of the pulmonary arteries.

    Abdominal and pelvic -CT is a sensitive method for diagnosis of abdominal diseases. It is used frequently to determine stage of cancer and to follow progress. It is also a useful test to investigate acute abdominal pain (especially of the lower quadrants, whereas ultrasound is the preferred first line investigation for right upper quadrant pain). Renal stones, appendicitis, pancreatitis, diverticulitis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and bowel obstruction are conditions that are readily diagnosed and assessed with CT. It is also the first line for detecting solid organ injury after trauma.  

    Extremities - CT is often used to image complex fractures, especially ones around joints, because of its ability to reconstruct the area of interest in multiple planes. Fractures, ligamentous injuries and dislocations can easily be recognised with a 0.2 mm resolution.

    Head (CT) - CT scanning provides more detailed information on head injuries, stroke, brain tumors and other brain diseases than regular radiographs (x-rays).

  • Bone Density

    Bone Density

    A bone density test uses special X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals — collectively known as bone mineral content — are packed into a segment of bone. The higher your mineral content, the denser your bones are. And the denser your bones, the stronger they generally are and the less likely they are to break. Doctors use a bone density test to determine if you have, or are at risk of, osteoporosis.
    Bone density tests are not the same as bone scans. Bone scans require an injection beforehand and are usually used to detect fractures, cancer, infections and other abnormalities in the bone.

    The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends routine bone density screening if:

    • You're a woman age 65 or older
    • You're 60 and at increased risk of osteoporosis

    The older you get, the higher your risk of osteoporosis because your bones become weaker as you age. Your race also makes a difference. You're at greatest risk of osteoporosis if you're white or of Southeast Asian descent. Black and Hispanic men and women have a lower, but still significant risk. Other risk factors for osteoporosis include low body weight, a personal history of fractures, a family history of osteoporosis and using certain medications that can cause bone loss.
    Research hasn't yet determined the optimal interval for repeat bone density screenings, or the right age to stop screening. However, two or more years may be needed between tests to reliably measure a change in your bone density. Your doctor can recommend the best screening interval for you based on your personal medical history and osteoporosis risk factors.

    How do you prepare for a bone density test?
    Bone density tests are easy, fast and painless. Virtually no preparation is needed. In fact, some simple versions of the bone density tests can be done at your local pharmacy or drugstore.
    If you're having the test done at a medical center or hospital, be sure to tell your doctor beforehand if you've had recent oral contrast or nuclear medicine tests. These tests require an injection of radioactive tracers that might interfere with your bone density test.

    How is a bone density test done?

    Locations for bone density testing Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA)


    Bone density tests are usually done on bones that are most likely to break because of osteoporosis. These sites include the lumbar vertebrae, which are in the lower region of your spine, the narrow neck of your femur bone adjoining the hip, and the bones of your wrist and forearm.

    The equipment for bone density tests includes large machines on which you can lie down (central devices) as well as smaller, portable machines that measure bone density on the periphery of your skeleton, such as in your finger, wrist or heel (peripheral devices).

    DEXA scan. Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans measure the bone density at your hip or spine. This test offers very precise results and is the preferred test for diagnosing osteoporosis. During this test, you lie on a padded platform for a few minutes while an imager — a mechanical arm-like device — passes over your body. It won't touch you. The test does, however, emit radiation, though your exposure during a bone density test is commonly about one-tenth of the amount emitted during a chest X-ray. This test usually takes five to 10 minutes to complete.

  • EMG


    Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the activation signal of muscles. EMG is performed using an instrument called an electromyograph, to produce a record called an electromyogram, An electromyograph detects the electrical potential generated by muscle cells when these cells contract, and also when the cells are at rest.


    EMG is used to diagnose two general categories of disease: neuropathies and myopathies.

    Neuropathic disease has the following defining EMG characteristics:

    • An action potential amplitude that is twice normal due to the increased number of fibres per motor unit because of reinnervation of denervated fibres.
    • An increase in duration of the action potential
    • A decrease in the number of motor units in the muscle (as found using motor unit number estimation techniques)

    Myopathic disease has these defining EMG characteristics:

    • A decrease in duration of the action potential
    • A reduction in the area to amplitude ratio of the action potential
    • A decrease in the number of motor units in the muscle (in extremely severe cases only)

    Abnormal results may be caused by the following medical conditions (please note this is nowhere near an exhaustive list of conditions that can result in abnormal EMG studies)

    List of some diseases in which EMG could be done

    • Alcoholic neuropathy
    • Axillary nerve dysfunction

    Ultra sonography

    Medical sonography (ultrasonography) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images. It is also used to visualize a fetus during routine and emergency prenatal care.

    Sonography is used routinely in obstetric appointments during pregnancy, but the FDA discourages its use for non-medical purposes such as fetal keepsake videos and photos, even though it is the same technology used in hospitals.

    Obstetric ultrasound is primarily used to:

    • Date the pregnancy (gestational age)
    • Confirm fetal viability
    • Determine location of fetus, intrauterine vs ectopic
    • Check the location of the placenta in relation to the cervix
    • Check for the number of fetuses (multiple pregnancy)
    • Check for major physical abnormalities.
    • Assess fetal growth (for evidence of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR)
    • Check for fetal movement and heartbeat.
    • Determine the sex of the bab

    Biomedical ultrasonic applications

    Ultrasound also has therapeutic applications, which can be highly beneficial when used with dosage precautions:

    • According to RadiologyInfo , ultrasounds are useful in the detection of Pelvic abnormalities and can involve techniques known as abdominal (transabdominal) ultrasound, vaginal (transvaginal or endovaginal) ultrasound in women, and also rectal (transrectal) ultrasound in men.
    • Treating benign and malignant tumors and other disorders, via a process known as Focused Ultrasound Surgery (FUS) or HIFU, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound These procedures generally use lower frequencies than medical diagnostic ultrasound (from 250 kHz to 2000 kHz), but significantly higher time-averaged intensities. The treatment is often guided by MRI, as in Magnetic Resonance guided Focused Ultrasound.
    • Delivering chemotherapy to brain cancer cells and various drugs to other tissues, via a process known as Acoustic Targeted Drug Delivery. These procedures generally use high frequency ultrasound (from 1 MHz to 10 MHz) and a range of intensities from 0-20 watts/cm2. The acoustic energy is focused on the tissue of interest to agitate its matrix and make it more permeable to therapeutic drugs.
    • Therapeutic ultrasound, a technique that uses more powerful ultrasound sources to generate local heating in biological tissue, e.g. in occupational therapy, physical therapy, Athletic Training and cancer treatment.
    • Cleaning teeth in dental hygiene.
    • Focused ultrasound sources may be used for cataract treatment by phacoemulsification.
    • Additional physiological effects of low-intensity ultrasound have recently been discovered, e.g. the ability to stimulate bone-growth and its potential to disrupt the blood-brain barrier for drug delivery.
    • Ultrasound is essential to the procedures of ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy and endovenous laser treatment for the non-surgical treatment of varicose veins.
    • Ultrasound is used in UAL (ultrasound-assisted lipectomy), or liposuction.
    • Doppler ultrasound is being tested for use in aiding tissue plasminogen activator treatment in stroke sufferers. This procedure is called Ultrasound-Enhanced Systemic Thrombolysis.
    • Low intensity pulsed ultrasound is used for therapeutic tooth and bone regeneration.
  • Echocardiogram


    What is the test?
    An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. An echocardiogram enables a doctor to examine your heart valves, determine the size of your heart, and assess how well it is functioning. The test can estimate how forcefully your heart is pumping blood, and can spot areas of the heart wall that have been injured by a previous heart attack or some other cause.

    How do I prepare for the test?
    No preparation is necessary.

    What happens when the test is performed?
    An echocardiogram can be done in a doctor's office or a hospital. You wear a hospital gown and lie on a table. After squirting some clear jelly onto your chest to help the ultrasound sensor slide around easily, a technician or doctor places the sensor (which looks like a microphone) against your skin. A picture of your heart appears on a video screen, and the technician or doctor slides the sensor back and forth on your chest to see different views of your heart. At times the volume from the machine might be turned on, transmitting a whooshing noise; this represents the sound of your heart beating and blood flowing. If your doctor wants to see your heart in action as it works hard, he or she might recommend that you have a variation on the regular echocardiogram. One variation, called an exercise echo, will have you pedal a stationary bike while the echocardiogram is done. Another variation, called a stress echo, involves having medication injected to increase your heart's blood flow before doing the echocardiogram.

    What risks are there from the test?
    There are no risks.

    Must I do anything special after the test is over?

    How long it is before the result of the test is known?
    If a doctor does the test, you might get some results immediately. If a technician performs the test, he or she records the echocardiogram on a videotape for a cardiologist to review later on. In this case, you'll probably receive results in several days.

  • X-Ray

    X rays

    X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. In a health care setting, a machines sends are individual x-ray particles, called photons. These particles pass through the body. A computer or special film is used to record the images that are created.
    Structures that are dense (such as bone) will block most of the x-ray particles, and will appear white. Metal and contrast media (special dye used to highlight areas of the body) will also appear white. Structures containing air will be black and muscle, fat, and fluid will appear as shades of gray.

    How the Test is Performed   
    The test is performed in a hospital radiology department or in the health care provider's office by an x-ray technologist. The positioning of the patient, x-ray machine, and film depends on the type of study and area of interest. Multiple individual views may be requested.
    Much like conventional photography, motion causes blurry images on radiographs, and thus, patients may be asked to hold their breath or not move during the brief exposure (about 1 second).

    How to Prepare for the Test   
    Inform the health care provider prior to the exam if you are pregnant, may be pregnant, or have an IUD inserted.
    If abdominal studies are planned and you have had a barium contrast study (such as a barium enema, upper GI series, or barium swallow) or taken medications containing bismuth (such as Pepto-Bismol) in the last 4 days, the test may be delayed until the contrast has fully passed.
    You will remove all jewelry and wear a hospital gown during the x-ray examination because metal and certain clothing can obscure the images and require repeat studies.

    How the Test Will Feel   
    There is no discomfort from x-ray exposure. Patients may be asked to stay still in awkward positions for a short period of time.

    Specific x-rays

    • Dental x-rays - Dental x-rays are a type of picture of the teeth and mouth. X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. They are of higher energy, however, and can penetrate the body to form an image on film.

    Dental x-rays may be used to identify the following:

    • The number, size, and position of teeth
    • Unemerged or impacted teeth
    • The presence and extent of dental caries (cavities)
    • Bone damage (such as from periodontitis)
    • Abscessed teeth
    • Fractured jaw
    • Malocclusion of teeth
    • Other abnormalities of the teeth and jaw bones
    • Neck x-ray - A neck x-ray is an imaging test to look at cervical vertebrae, the seven bones in the neck area. The test will detect abnormalities such as fractures, dislocations, thinning of the bone (osteoporosis), and deformities in the curvature of the spine. The test may also detect bone spurs, disk problems, and degeneration of the vertebrae.

    Additional conditions under which the test may be performed:

    • Cervical spondylosis
    • Croup syndrome
    • Epiglottitis

    • Pelvis x-ray - A pelvis x-ray is a picture of the bones surrounding the hip area. The pelvis connects the legs to the body.  In the following conditions the test may be performed
    • Pelvic fractures
    • Tumors of the ilium, ischium, or pubis (the bones of the pelvis)
      Sacroiliitis (inflammation of the area where the sacrum joins the ilium bone)
    • Ankylosing spondylitis
    • Thoracic spine x-ray - A thoracic spine x-ray is an x-ray of the twelve chest (thoracic) vertebrae. The vertebrae are separated by flat pads of cartilage that cushion them.   The x-ray helps evaluate bone injuries, disease of the bone, tumors of the bone, or cartilage loss.
    • Hand x-ray - A hand x-ray is a medical image of one or both hands. Hand x-ray is used to detect fractures, tumors, or degenerative conditions of the hand. Hand x-rays may also be performed to assist in determining the "bone-age" of a child in order to determine if metabolic or nutritional disorders are interfering with proper growth
    • Lumbosacral spine x-ray - A lumbosacral spine x-ray is a picture of the small bones (vertebrae) in the lower part of the spine (the lumbar region) and the sacrum, the area that connects the spine to the pelvis. Lumbosacral spine x-ray helps evaluate back injuries and persistent numbness, low back pain, or weakness.
    • Skull x-ray - A skull x-ray is a picture of the bones surrounding the brain, including the facial bones, the nose, and the sinuses. This test may be performed when there has been trauma and/or injury to the skull or when symptoms indicate a disorder involving structural abnormalities may be present inside the skull (such as tumors or bleeding). The x-ray is also used to evaluate an unusually shaped child's head.
    • Bone x-ray - A bone x-ray may detect fractures, tumors, or degenerative conditions of the bone
    • Joint x-ray - This test is an x-ray of a knee, shoulder, hip, wrist, ankle, or other joint.
    • Chest x-ray - A chest x-ray is an x-ray of the chest, lungs, heart, large arteries, ribs, and diaphragm. A chest x-ray may be ordered when a person's symptoms include a persistent cough, coughing up blood, chest pain, a chest injury, or difficulty in breathing. The test is also used when tuberculosis, lung cancer, or other chest or lung disease is suspected.
    • Abdominal x-ray - Abdominal films are x-ray images of the abdomen. Abnormal findings include:

      • Abdominal masses
      • Build up of fluid in the abdomen
      • Kidney stones
      • Certain types of gallstones
      • Intestinal blockage
      • Foreign object in the intestines (an intestinal obstruction)
      • Injury to the abdominal tissue
      • Hole in the stomach or intestines


      Barium x-ray - Barium enema is a special x-ray of the large intestine, which includes the colon and rectum. Before x-rays are taken, a liquid called barium sulfate is placed in the rectum. The liquid is a type of contrast. Contrast highlights specific areas in the body, creating a clearer image. The barium eventually passes out of the body with the stools. The barium enema is used to detect colon cancer. It may also be used to diagnose and evaluate the extent of inflammatory bowel disease
