The Department of Radiology at Vivekananda Hospital, Hyderabad have experienced technicians and skilled radiologists who specialise in using imaging technology to accurately diagnose simple to complex medical conditions.
The department is provided with latest equipment and also has a network of best diagnostic and imaging facilities in the city to provide innovative and fast changing technology, high quality imaging and diagnosis to the patients. The department offers early and accurate radiology services to patients of almost all medical specialities, all age groups, all out patients including ambulatory patients and inpatients in a caring and safe environment.
Radiology, often known as diagnostic imaging, is a group of tests that take photos or images of the body’s various parts. Many of these tests are one-of-a-kind in that they allow doctors to look into the human body. This picture can be obtained using various imaging tests, including X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT scan, and PET scan.
X-rays, ultrasound, bone mineral densitometry, fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine, CT, and MRI are among the diagnostic tests that radiologists evaluate.
Many disorders, including cancer, require the use of radiology to diagnose them. Early detection can save lives.
On average, every hour of every day, eight individuals in Ontario will be diagnosed with cancer, and three will die from it.
Without diagnostic imaging, doctors nowadays are unable to manage their patients. Your family doctor uses radiology test results and emergency room doctors to decide your diagnosis and treatment plan for numerous conditions.
The physicians who specialize in interpreting the outcomes of these imaging exams are known as radiologists. Radiologists advise family physicians and other experts on the safest and most practical exams and the results for the patient and treatment alternatives.
Radiologists are medical specialists that specialize in employing medical imaging (radiology) methods (exams/tests) such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET), and ultrasound to diagnose and treat injuries and diseases.
Radiologists must perform at least 13 years of education, which includes medical school, a four-year residency, and, in most cases, a one- or two-year fellowship in a highly specialized field like radiation oncology, pediatric radiology, or interventional radiology. The American Board of Radiology certifies them, and they must meet stringent continuing medical education standards throughout their careers.
In many circumstances, the radiologist who is working on your behalf will not be introduced to you. However, you can trust that they have the knowledge and experience to assist you and your doctor in making well-informed healthcare decisions.
Diagnostic radiologists employ several imaging procedures to examine the inside of the body and diagnose or assess the patient’s condition. Your radiologist plays an essential role in your health by assisting your referring physician (the doctor who sent you for testing) in selecting the appropriate exam and direct radiology technicians (those who operate the equipment) in executing high-quality tests. They interpret and report on the images that result, advising treatment and, when necessary, more testing.
Diagnostic radiologists can specialize in several radiological subspecialties through substantial clinical experience and related research:
These radiologists use image-guided, minimally invasive procedures, including X-rays and MRI, to diagnose and treat patients. They use tiny incisions in the body to precisely direct devices to the source of a medical condition and offer tailored remedies. These procedures provide less danger, pain, and recovery time than routine surgery for problems like heart disease, stroke, cancer, and uterine fibroids.
Doctors who prescribe and oversee each cancer patient’s treatment plan are known as radiologists. They employ radiation therapy to treat cancer, and they keep track of the patient’s progress and change treatment as needed to ensure that they get the best possible care. Radiation oncologists receive intensive training in cancer care, the safe application of radiation to treat disease, and the management of radiation adverse effects.
