All the interpretation reports and images are available at all times in the radiologists and physicians computers.
The latest MRI machine provides accurate imaging of brain, spine and, musculoskeletal system, Cardiovascular system, breast, abdomen and pelvic organs using up to date pulse sequences. Special sequences are also added for better characterization of the lesion, early detection and stating of malignancy. Unique whole body MR imaging with different pulse sequences without external coils is also available.
In addition to the routine MRI examination for all body systems, it has an advanced sophisticated MRI facility including Functional MRI for the brain and Heart, Diffusion MRI with ADC mapping, and diffusion tensor imaging, MR Spectroscopy, Perfusion Imaging, MRCP of the biliary tree and MRU of the renal system, Dynamic contrast studies for pituitary gland, breast, liver, kidney, prostate, and uterus MR angiography of the vascular system all over the body with and without contrast is also available with high resolution.
Multi – Slice CT, has increased the diagnostic capability in short time. With our most recent device (Multi slice-128), the study can be finished in few seconds. High-quality 2D reformatted and 3D reconstructed images are available including volume rendering and surface shaded imaging. One of the distinct advantages of this machine is Cardiac CT with CT coronary angiography to evaluate the coronary arteries of the heart non-invasively with a facility to estimate calcium scoring. This can be used as a screening method for high-risk patients with coronary heart disease and postoperative follow-up for patients with previous coronary bypass grafts or coronary stents. Functional assessment of the heart is also done as a part of the CT cardiac examination using dedicated second workstations.
Advanced CT angiography techniques using modern automatic injector are available. This is of great value in early detection of acute pulmonary embolism, excellent visualization abdominal arteries and extremities, neck and brain vessels. Detailed vessel analysis with a quantitative assessment of vascular stenosis is achieved using state -of -the art second workstation CT Virtual endoscopy for the colon, lungs, as well as the larynx and Paranasal sinuses, can be used replacing the invasive diagnostic endoscopy using the new software for 3D end luminal imaging.
CT guided biopsies and drainage procedures are done routinely which avoids operative intervention in most of the cases.
In addition to other routine CT procedures which are done with highest image quality, this machine has also a major role in the diagnosis of stroke patient due to the ultra-short time of CT of the brain. This gives the patient great chance for proper management on time. It also has a great impact in diagnosis subtle fractures and assessment of complicated fractures in trauma patients using high-resolution scans with high-quality 3D reconstruction in different planes.
A modern fluoroscopy machine has been installed. All specialized fluoroscopic procedures such as hysterosalpingography, barium studies, sinography, fistulography, and descending and ascending cystourethrography can be performed on these efficient X-ray machines.
Sophisticated new ultrasound machines are available to perform vascular color Doppler, muscular skeletal imaging, ultrasonography of superficial parts like thyroid, neck and scrotum and Transcranial ultrasound in addition to routine ultrasound studies.

3D/4D ultrasound pregnancy scans
3D/4D scanning is an amazing three-dimensional picture of your baby on the screen. 4D is to see this 3D image in a real time moving state. Your baby can be moving, yawning, sucking its thumb and even smiling.
The equipment uses sophisticated techniques transforming the traditional ultrasound 2D scan such as the one that you have at the ordinary obstetric ultrasound examination.
Full- field digital mammography system designed to provide physicians with clear and precise all-digital images rather than X-ray films. The system offers better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, the chest wall, and in women with dense breast tissue. Examination time is reduced by half of the traditional film- based mammograms.
Digital Radiography is a form of x-ray here digital X-ray sensors which 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.
The field of Intervention Radiology has 2 main groups:
First Group: the stand-alone procedures which are considered an alternative to traditional surgery and may be called a treatment of choice. They include:
Second Group: procedures meant to assist or complement other modes of treatment:
Nuclear Medicine is a branch of Diagnostic Radiology and Imaging wherein a very small and safe amount of radioactive isotope (usually 99m Technetium) tagged to a pharmaceutical agent and injected intravenously and the patient is scanned using specialized equipment called Gamma Camera (with SPECT – Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography).
