Medical imaging is a boon that gives the doctor an opportunity to look into the human body and detect any disease or anomaly.
The department of radiology is, therefore, a very important part of Unity Hospital and has developed as a Centre of Excellence by itself.
Unity Hospital is equipped with advanced computerized digital x-ray which is available 24X7. Further, there are mobile X-ray units which are deployed at every individual floor levels.
CT scan focuses on 3-dimensional imaging of internal structures by using radiation technology. Unity Hospital is equipped with Phillips MX, 16 slice CT scan set up which is available 24X7 for all emergency work.
Ultrasound imaging is the gold standard imaging in abdomen and pelvis and has the advantage of not using radiations.
Unity Hospital has a well-equipped sonology suite with state-of-the-art equipment as well as trained personnel.
Interventional radiology is the branch of radiology that involves the performance of (usually minimally invasive) medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies.
