The Department of Radiology and nuclear medicine at Max health hospital is well-equipped with sophisticated and most-advanced equipment including 128 Slice CT, 3T MRI, 3D and 4 D Ultrasound machines, Digital X-rays, IVUS- FFR Cath lab, PET CT with robust features capable of providing a complete spectrum of high-resolution radiological imagery. World-class equipment with the top-notch radiological diagnostic features provide comprehensive, elaborate and precise imagery within a short time period with the least radiation exposure. Our experienced team of radiologists with hands-on expertise provide detailed information about structural or disease related changes through diagnostic imaging and interpreting the results of these imaging exams. Senior radiologists are well-supported by consultant radiologists, radiology nurses, technicians and supportive staff to counsel, support, guide and instruct patients about the importance of imaging in the diagnosis of disease. They comfort the patients with compassionate care to ensure their support in obtaining top-quality results of the tests.

A decade old experience has endlessly finetuned our objective to optimizing imaging for diagnostic services, therapy and teaching. Our world-renowned radiologists are at the forefront of managing diseases with their immense expertise and experience and work collaboratively with the specialists across all specialities. They are determined to provide the best possible care for patients.In addition to interpreting diagnostic images and providing indispensable information, our radiologists also help in the prevention of diseases by screening life-threatening conditions like cancers, which helps in early detection, staging and treatment. They also monitor cancer therapy with diagnosis, treatment monitoring and therapy.

Class Technologies and Facilities:

Computed tomography (CT) scan offers a detailed, high-quality, 360-degree or cross-sectional image of human anatomy. The radiologists control the equipment and X-ray beams to scan soft tissues, bones and internal organs to identify abnormalities such as injuries, infection, tumor, and degeneration. Dual source CT scan uses two sources of X-ray and helps to detect diseases faster with reduced exposure to radiation. This is extremely useful for diseases of blood vessels.
Magnetic resolution imaging (MRI) is a combined power of magnetism and radio waves that results in images that offer great accuracy and detailing of soft tissues, bones and internal organs
Surgeons and radiologists integrate diagnosis and therapeutic interventions with great care to give patients the best possible outcomes from the surgeries, especially heart surgeries and brain surgeries. Yashoda Hospitals being the first in India with Intra-operative MRI (iMRI) is the pioneer of this cutting-edge diagnostic technology.
Ultrasonography uses sound waves to produce an image of internal organs and structures. It is used for diagnosis of diseases affecting organs in any part of the body, especially in breast imaging and echocardiogram. Ultrasonography is also used as guidance for biopsies. Usually noninvasive, however, a probe may be used for transesophageal echocardiogram, transrectal ultrasound and transvaginal ultrasound.
Digital mammography (tomosynthesis)coupled with 3D technology allows oncologists and gynecologists to evaluate for tumors (and cancer) and also guide biopsies.
A special software converts the standard CT images into 3D moving pictures of the inside of the bronchus similar to a fibreoptic bronchoscopy. It finds importance in visualization of lumen (airways), walls of trachea and bronchial tree.
The utility of X-ray sensors gives digital X-ray an upper hand over conventional X-ray in terms of enhanced quality image and cost-effectiveness. Digital X-ray may be used to detect bone injuries and diseases, digestive problems and many more health conditions.
Elastography is a modality that uses shear waves using ultrasound or magnetic resonance to diagnose the mechanical elasticity of soft tissues and the resistance they offer to distortion.
DEXA measures bone mineral density and thus bone loss by using two beams of X-ray. It is useful in the diagnosis of bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
Stress X-ray and arthrography to evaluate bones and joints for fractures, infection, inflammation, deformities, injuries and diseases such as arthritis MRI or CT to evaluate soft tissue damages Imaging tests to detect bone tumors and metastasis Image-guided (CT Scan and ultrasound) biopsies Arthrocentesis to aspirate joint fluid for infection, gout, arthritis CT cisternogram to evaluate spinal fluid flow and potential spinal fluid leaks
CT, MRI, or echoencephalography tests to investigate blood flow and vascular abnormalities in brain Early diagnosis of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s diseases Evaluating chemical abnormalities involved in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease Evaluation for suspected brain tumor recurrence and localization for biopsy Evaluating spinal fluid flow and potential spinal fluid leaks

The following procedures are usually done in collaboration with oncologists and interventional radiologists.

Detecting and staging cancer
Detecting rare tumors of pancreas and adrenal glands
Localizing sentinel lymph nodes before surgery in cancer of breast, skin and soft tissues
Planning cancer treatment and evaluating the response
Detecting the recurrence of cancer
