Radiology

Radiology section

This section is equipped with digital imaging devices and is able to perform all imaging services, including simple and specialized imaging, in the shortest time possible.

This section is including following items:

- Bone density measurement

- Single-tooth and Panoramic Digital Camera (OPG)

- Sonography: Types of ultrasound of the fetus, Doppler

OPG

The OPG is a radiographic device in which the patient's head is fixed in it and the radiation portion rotates from one side of the face to the other and provides a complete panoramic image of the teeth, jaw, and temporal joints.

Mammography

A simple radiographic picture of the breast and an instrument for early detection of irreversible breast cancers. Generally, every mammography device consists of an X-ray tube, compressor, image receiver and radiation control panel.

 

 

Fluorescopy

The imaging method, in which the photocopier consists of an x-ray whose beams are received and amplified by a type of image receiver called the image machine, it detects the passages from the patient's body in real time and then the signals received by this CCTV television system are viewed and recorded, this is a useful time-lapse technique that requires movement, such as the displacement of materials in the digestive tract, after the ingestion of the contrast agent, to be studied. In this method, instead of film, visible glass fluorescence glass plates can be used to visualize the image during radiation.

Sonography

This department has 6 ultrasound apparatuses, which include a portable ultrasound apparatus for ultrasonography of patients admitted in sections and 5 ultrasound doppler ultrasound dyes with advanced hardware and software including 2D, 3D, 4D color doppler. The VHS, CD, Floppy Disk and DVD outputs are equipped with transient rectal and transgranular probes as well as portable ultrasound transducer for different types of ultrasounds.

The diagnostic services provided in this section are:

All general ultrasounds sonography

All color doppler ultrasounds {sonography} for examination

Carotid and ventricular vessels in the presence of plaque and stenosis

Renal arteries for renal artery stenosis, renal vein thrombosis

  Arterial and venous periferous arteries in the presence of stenosis, aneurysm, DVT arterial fistula

Liver for portal hypertension, vascular and temporal lesions

Embryo Doppler, for IUGR and anomalies

Doppler masses in terms of vasculitis

Penis Doppler by Papaverin Injection

Ultrasonography biopsy

CT scan biopsy

Professional and accurate radiographs are:

Retrograde Pyelography

Retrograde Cystography

Antegrade Pyelography

Mythology

Performing specialized angiographs such as:

Brain angiograms -F.V

Upper limb, lower extremity

 

Bone mineral density measurement

Equipping with one of the most advanced devices available with the Fan beam system with the lowest dose of radiation to higher quality patients and more precision is the ability to do all the requests of specialist physicians.

In this device, two BMD measurement and IVA (Install Vertebral Assessment) processes are merged. Consequently, simultaneously with T4-L4 bone density, deformity and calcification of abdominal aorta can be evaluated as a result of congenital hip dislocation.

Another ability this device has is capability of its Body Composition Analysis, which is able to map out the distribution of fat, soft tissue and bone by providing color images of the entire body.

Equipped with the PACS system

It should be noted that the Advanced PACS Imaging Division is able to provide all the images online to all physicians. Due to the Web base, this system is fully equipped with the Tele Imaging platform. The PACS system introduces the Film Less system by electronically capturing images. Like most HIS satellite programs, this system has the ability to connect to the doctor and medical team at the hospital. In this integration, the PACS system receives and stores patient ID and patient records from the HIS to be identified by the medical team.
