An MRI (or Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan is a radiology technique that uses magnetism, radio waves, and a computer to produce images of body structures. The MRI scanner is a tube surrounded by a giant circular magnet. The patient is placed on a moveable bed that is inserted into the magnet. The magnet creates a strong magnetic field that aligns the protons of hydrogen atoms, which are then exposed to a beam of radio waves. This spins the various protons of the body, and they produce a faint signal that is detected by the receiver portion of the MRI scanner.

The receiver information is processed by a computer, and an image is produced. The image and resolution produced by MRI is quite detailed and can detect tiny changes of structures within the body. For some procedures, contrast agents, such as gadolinium, are used to increase the accuracy of the images.

How Magnetic Resonance Imaging works?
Available Branches

Open MRI machines have top and bottom magnetic areas and do not enclose a patient. The space between the two sides often alleviates any claustrophobia.

OpenSided MRI uses Hitachi Medical System’s state of the art Open l Machine for their Open MRI scans.

Its award winning asymmetrical design produces high quality imaging while providing optimal comfort to its patients.

Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.

Most ultrasound examinations are done using an ultrasound device outside your body, though some involve placing a device inside your body.

Ultrasound is used for many reasons, including to:

  • View the uterus and ovaries during pregnancy and monitor the developing baby’s health
  • Diagnose gallbladder disease
  • Evaluate blood flow
  • Guide a needle for biopsy or tumor treatment
  • Examine a breast lump
  • Check your thyroid gland
  • Detect genital and prostate problems
  • Assess joint inflammation (synovitis)
  • Evaluate metabolic bone disease


A Computed Tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays to make pictures of the head and face.

During the test, you will lie on a table that is hooked to the CT scan, which is a large doughnut-shaped machine. Your head will be positioned inside the scanner. The CT scanner sends X-ray pulses through the head. Each pulse lasts less than a second and takes a picture of a thin slice of the head and face. One part of the scanning machine can tilt to take pictures from different positions. The pictures are saved on a computer.

An iodine dye (contrast material) is often used to make structures and organs easier to see on the CT pictures. The dye may be used to check blood flow, find tumors, and look for other problems. Dye can be put in a vein (IV) in your arm. CT pictures may be taken before and after the dye is used.

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. Digital Radiography (DR) or (DX) is essentially filmless X-ray image capture. In place of X-ray film, a digital image capture device is used to record the Digital X ray image and make it available as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as part of the

patient’s medical record. The advantages of DR over film include immediate image preview and availability, a wider dynamic range which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image. The largest motivator for healthcare facilities to adopt DR is its potential to reduce costs associated with processing, managing and storing films. Typically there are two variants of digital image capture devices. These devices include Flat Panel detectors (FPDs), and High Density Line Scan Solid State detectors.

During Colour Doppler Ultrasound, a handheld instrument (transducer) is passed lightly over the skin above a blood vessel. The transducer sends and receives sound waves that are amplified through a microphone. The sound waves bounce off solid objects, including blood cells. The movement of blood cells causes a change in the pitch of the reflected sound waves (called the Doppler effect). If there is no blood flow, the pitch does not change. Information from the reflected sound waves can be processed by a computer to provide graphs or pictures that represent the flow of blood through the blood vessels. These graphs or pictures can be saved for future review or evaluation. The four types of dopplers are ”Bedside” or continuous wave Doppler, Duplex Doppler, Color Doppler and Power Doppler

These are special x-ray techniques that look at the teeth and jaw. An OPG (“orthopantomogram”) gives a panoramic view of the mouth, giving information on the teeth and the bones of the upper and lower jaw. Cephalometry is used to obtain measurements and determine relationships of the structures of the lower face.

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging.
Two recent advances in mammography include digital mammography and computer-aided detection.

Electro-Neurodiagnostic Technology (END) It is one of the newer and most rapidly growing specialties in the medical field. It is devoted to the recording and study of the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. END technologists record electrical activity arising primarily from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves or somato-sensory systems using a variety of techniques and instruments.

  • The Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
  • The Evoked Potential (EP)
  • Long Term Monitoring (LTM)
  • Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM)
  • Tilt Table EEG with EKG or ECHO

Dexa scans are the most commonly used test to measure bone density. Your results from this test can be a great help as you monitor your Osteopenia treatment plan. Your results can help you decide if you need to make adjustments in your plan.

Dexa scans stand for ‘Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry’. It is the most commonly used test for measuring bone mineral density. It is one of the most accurate ways to diagnosis Osteopenia or Osteoporosis.This test is so accurate that your follow up Dexa scan can be used to monitor your treatment to learn if your plan is working.

Computerised Radiography is one of the fastest growing modalities in the imaging industry! It combines a Diagnostic Radiology (X-RAY) machine with a powerful computer to produce digital x-ray images instead of analog images. Your digital x-ray images no longer require x-ray film but may be viewed or transmitted electronically to any monitor or computer with high speed connectivity.
