Sinaiclinic Hospital has an ultramodern Radiology and Imaging Department equipped with the state of the art imaging modalities and is managed by a team of dedicated radiologists and technologists headed by a highly qualified and experienced senior consultant radiologist.
Specialized imaging facilities:
With the upgrade to multi-slice CT, the multi-formatted and 3D images have increased the diagnostic capability. With the new device, the study can be finished in few seconds, saving patient’s time. One of the distinct advantages of this machine is its capability to evaluate the coronary arteries of the heart non-invasively with a facility to estimate calcium scoring. More and more patients and physicians prefer this non-invasive method of investigating coronary arteries.
CT guided biopsies and drainage procedures are done routinely. This machine is supported by a modern pressure injector for contrast medium injection. The 3D images are of great help in the evaluation of fractures, tumors and aneurysms.
CT angiogram is of value in pulmonary embolism, abdominal arteries and extremities, neck and brain vessels. CT guided drainage procedures prevent surgeries.
CT assisted virtual colonoscopy is an important tool that can be applied to very sick patients who are not fit for colonoscopy.
Recently a software was developed and incorporated into the Multislice CT which is used by Dental Implantology.
Apart from the specialized imaging facilities the department includes :
Gastrointestinal and urological fluroscopic procedures
Digital radiography with digital subtraction angiography
Ultrasound with color Doppler and ultrasound guided procedures
Mobile x-ray machine
Mobile ultrasound machine
With the availability of sophisticated equipment and technical expertise, various therapeutic procedures which are safe and simple alternatives to surgical procedures in high risk patients, can be performed in the department.
