Diagnostic Radiology

We provide an essential supporting service to the clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. We produce both plain and specialised x-ray examinations of high diagnostic qualities. We also provide diagnostic imaging reports and opinions in order to assist the clinicians in the management and treatment of the patients. We carry out interventional procedures under the guidance of our range of state-of-the-art equipment.

The KTPH Department of Diagnostic Radiology started its services from April 2010 for specialist clinic outpatients and full services from 30th June 2010 for inpatients, outpatients and emergency patients.

It is equipped with the latest imaging equipment providing a full range of radiological services. Modern digital imaging technology integrates a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) with the radiology information system (RIS).

Our radiological services include diagnostic and imaging-guided therapeutic procedures at three imaging centres within the hospital:

1. Main Radiology Centre at Tower B Level 2
Services offered are inpatient and  outpatient CT scan (dual source CT), ultrasound, MRI scan machines, fluoroscopic imaging, IVU, angiography and intervention suite, general radiography, mammography, bone densitometry.

2. Acute and Emergency Care Department
24-hour coverage by a radiologist and facility for CT scan (64-slice) and radiography for emergency patients.

3. Level 2 Tower C Women's Clinic
Ultrasonography and mammography are available.

The department also provides portable X-ray services to the wards, Intensive Care Unit and operating theatres.

About 300,000 examinations have been performed since the department started its services from April 2010. These comprise ultrasound scans, mammography, CT and MRI scans, fluoroscopy, intervention procedures and nuclear medicine scans in addition to plain radiographs.
