RADIOLOGY AND IMAGING SCIENCES

Helping in accurate diagnosis!

The institute of Radiology and Imaging Sciences department in MIMS is one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the entire country and is integrated with advanced technologies that are at par with the West. Imaging is the technique through which radiologists examine our internal organs without making any incisions. This is a kind of visual inspection that would help the radiologists make an accurate diagnosis. Through imaging, doctors and surgeons would be able to chart a treatment pattern and chart every course of surgery.

The department of Radiology offers full spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including X-ray, conventional contrast procedures, ultrasound, CT, MRI and interventional radiology. All the patients are treated safely and efficiently so that they get cutting edge radiology service which is one of the best in the whole country. The department provides a rich array of services ranging from vascular, abdominal, neurologic, cardiac, head and neck, musculoskeletal, paediatric (antenatal sonography, paediatric and neonatal sonography, neurosonography,) and women’s imaging (mammosonography). The department is integrated with the finest equipment to do minimally invasive procedures under sonographic guidance, for example, biopsy of mediastinal and retro-peritoneal lymph nodes, lungs, liver, kidneys, breast and musculoskeletal lesions. The radiology services are provided by veteran radiologists whose knowledge and experience remains the best.

Our interventional radiologists uses minimally invasive, image-guided techniques for treatment of diseases with unprecedented precision in nearly every organ systems by harnessing the power of advanced imaging which has come up as an effective alternative to various surgeries. Advantages include pin hole surgical technique with least disfigurement or scar, minimal risk and side effects, shorter duration of procedures with minimal or no blood loss, very short hospital stay and early return to normal activity. It usually avoids use of general anaesthesia and is best chosen option for patients with end stage disease, inoperable diseases, old age group and those unfit for open or laparoscopic surgery

The radiology and imaging department has the most advanced systems aiming to reduce carbon footprint, reduce undesired side effects and provide safety. Thanks to the latest innovative radiofrequency technology, our patients do not have to go through any discomfort or difficulty during scanning or imaging.
