Radiology is the specialty that involves diagnostic imaging technology to diagnose and treat diseases from various parts of the body.
The department of Radiology in Shanmuga Multispeciality hospitals Salem is approved by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB).
Being one among the best multi speciality hospital in Salem, Shanmuga hospital is well equipped with diagnostic equipments such as CT, MRI, X-ray, Mammogram, C arm, etc., that facilitate accurate diagnosis.
- Digital X-ray
Digital X-rays produce lesser radiation when compared to traditional x-rays. Digital radiography enables the digital transfer of enhanced images, thus saving a lot of time.
This technique uses high frequency (ultrasound) sound waves to produce images of the soft tissue structures in the body. This is a safe method which doesn’t involve any ionizing radiation and can even be used to scan pregnant women and children.
- Computed Tomography (CT)
This is the common method used for scanning. This technique provides cross-sectional images of the body. CT scans can help in visualizing bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. Various parts of the body can be scanned using this method.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
This is another commonly used scanning technique which uses radio waves and strong magnetic fields to produce two dimensional and three dimensional images. MRI is used to detect various diseases, abnormalities, cysts, tumors and so on.
This method is used to examine the breast for diagnostic purposes. A mammogram (an x-ray of the breast) can help with the early diagnosis of breast cancer. Shanmuga hospital organizes ‘Breast cancer awareness’ camps occasionally where mammogram tests are conducted.
