Welcome to Radiology Department
The Radiology Department operates on an international standards benchmarked to ISO 9001:2008. The department provides a plethora of medical imaging services all using the advanced ‘Picture Archiving and Communicating Systems’ (PACS), allowing digital images to be provided to the patient on CD/DVD or transferred on request to other medical centers for further investigation. Below you can find an overview of our modalities.
Radiology Department Profile – Medya Diagnostic Center
The Radiology Department at MDC provides patients with access to advanced imaging services through the latest diagnostic and treatment technology. Our Radiology department provides a high quality and comprehensive range of diagnostic imaging procedures (services) using a range of modern specialist machines and techniques that create images of the structures and activities inside the body.
We use state-of-the-art imaging equipment and the latest techniques to support our clinical teams in the diagnosis of the full range of medical problems. GP referrals and private patients can also benefit from advanced imaging services, including computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluoroscopy, x-ray, ultrasound and Bone mass density (BMD).
From routine diagnostic scans to highly advanced, non-invasive radiological interventions, the expertise of both our board-certified radiologist physicians and our experienced technologists runs the gamut of imaging care.
Along with offering extensive patient services, our imaging department at MDC owns a highly experienced and subspecialty team of radiologists and radiology technologists that provides an excellent interpretation to results of all the imaging studies which will help your doctor make accurate and timely diagnoses.
Our radiology department provide radiological service that is timely, cost effective, appropriate and of the highest quality. We make sure that the patients feel that they are I the best hand for finding an accurate diagnosis because we know that the correct diagnosis leads to more effective treatment and better outcomes
Our technologists have extensive training and more than 10 years’ experience producing the highest quality diagnostic images.
Our images are interpreted and reviewed by trained, subspecialty radiologists. Specialized radiologists produce more accurate reports and have higher detection rates.
We perform some complex and special procedures that is not done anywhere else in the region.
We use medical information technology system of PACS (Picture Archiving and communication System) to facilitate the communication between the technologists and the reporting radiologists to perform an excellent interpretation to the images/results. We also use radiology information system (RIS) which is a networked software system for managing medical imagery and associated data. A RIS is especially useful for tracking radiology imaging orders and billing information, and is often used in conjunction with PACS to manage image archives, record-keeping and billing. This allows the patients to access their medical history for at least 5 years after their last visit to our department.
We undertake a variety of examinations for GPs and hospital medical staff from plain radiographs (for example chest x-rays), ultrasounds, more complex CT and MRI scans, ultrasound, BMD and interventional procedures.
The Department has strict guidelines to ensure that the minimum radiation dose is given and keeps its equipment and staff up to date with the latest available technology. The type of scan or procedure used on patients usually depends on the symptoms and the part of body that needs to be examined.
•Computerized Tomography (CT) – CT scans, also known as a CAT scan, uses x-rays and a computer to create detailed images of the inside of your body
•Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – MRI is a type of scan used to diagnose health conditions that affect organs, tissue and bone. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.
•Ultrasound (US) – ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body, such as muscles, tendons, and many internal organs. It is also used during pregnancy to produce images of unborn babies
•Bone Mass Density (BMD) – dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is used to measure the density of bones
•X-ray – a safe and painless procedure often used to produce images of the inside of the body such as fractured bones and to examine organs
•Mammography – is a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays to detect cancer early – before women experience symptoms – when it is most treatable
•Fluoroscopy – fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses x-rays to create "real-time" or moving images of the body
When it comes to your diagnostic needs, a team of professional and caring nurses, medical assistants, technologists, and physicians will care for you, including:
•Radiologists – Our highly trained and experienced physicians are responsible for interpreting your exam results, performing procedures such as interventional radiology procedures, and working with other doctors and specialists to provide accurate diagnostic services. At MDC, our team of Radiologists are all internationally board certified in radiology with most being fellowship-trained in the UK, US, France, Sweden, and Germany.
•Medical Technologists – Our technologists have extensive training and more than 15 years’ experience producing the highest quality diagnostic images in addition to offering the finest possible patient care. Your technologist will be the one performing many of the various types of exams, including X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. Our technologists have advanced certifications in radiology, and are dedicated to providing you with the best health care experience each and every time you are with us.
•Nurses and Medical assistants – Our experienced and caring nurses are here to assess and document your status during your visit so they may discuss your personalized needs with your physician. They will also provide you with the resources you need regarding your procedure and keep you informed as to what you can expect during your visit.
16 Multi-slice Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
The department is able to provide a multitude of CT scans; brain, head, neck, facial bones, sinuses, spine, pelvic trauma, abdomen, liver and pancreas, localization of bone lesion, staging of neoplasm, CT guidance for interventional procedures such as biopsies and drainage, urinary tract and computerized tomography angiography, CT-Pneumocolon and CT myelography. There are numerous other scans which we can provide, for a more complete and up to date list please see our radiology test list or contact our center.
CT CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY
CT coronary angiography is a special procedure that takes pictures of the heart and coronary arteries which allows the physicians to see any blockage and narrowing of the arteries around the heart due to plaque buildup. A CT scanner uses a combination of a high-tech x-ray scanner and sophisticated computer analysis to provide detailed, 3D images of your moving heart and major blood vessels
1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
The following MRIs are routinely performed at the center; Brain (adult and infant), Bones, Musculoskeletal system, Chest (apical lesions, Mediastinal diseases, Pleural and Pericardial lesions, Peridiaphragmatic lesions), Cerebral Vascular Disease, Thoracic Disease, Portal Venous Disease ( incl. MRA and MRV). Scans of the abdomen, liver, pancreas and kidneys are routinely performed for neoplasm, infiltration and inflammation. The pelvic area including bladder, prostate and ovaries are scanned for neoplasms. Breast MRI, Dynamic pituitary MRI. Magnetic Resonance Cholangio Punceatography (MRCP).
