Philips 3T MRI Inbore Experience

At Karauli Diagnostics we are introducing Philips 3T MRI inbore experience for the first time in Varanasi. A Philips Ambient Experience MRI suite, with the addition of the Philips Ambient Experience patient in-bore solution, is proposed to transform the traditional scanning experience. Pateints experience no Claustrophobia, no heavy sound and no tension. The immersive experience at Karauli Diagnostics now starts at the room’s entrance. A soothing environment with sound, video projection and dynamic lighting greets the patient and accompanies the patient into the scanner. Philips 3T MRI unique patient in-bore solution distracts patients when they move into the MRI. Engaging visuals combined with sound give patients a comforting and engaging experience during the scan.

Ultra Sonography

Most people associate ultrasound with pregnancy but it is not only recommended by doctors for pregnant women but also for patients who have pain, swelling, or any other symptoms that require an internal view of organs. An ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. Also known as sonography, diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography, it is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gall bladder, liver, heart, kidneys and female reproductive organs. It is also used to detect blockages in the blood vessels.

X-Ray

When you think of X-Ray, it brings to mind broken bones. This common imaging test however does much more than detect fractures in bones. Chest X-rays can spot pneumonia; mammograms use x-rays to detect breast cancer. X-ray machines are used to take pictures of dense tissues such as bones and teeth. X-Rays have been used for decades to help doctors view the inside of the body without having to make an incision.

panoramic

An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth as it demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. The procedure involves standing with your face resting on a small shelf and biting gently on a sterile mouth piece to steady the head. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth. An OPG may reveal problems with the jawbone.

C.T. Scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan is a non-invasive way to study all parts of your body. It uses X-rays to make detailed pictures of the structure of any internal body part. In many cases, a CT scan can decidedly decrease the need to perform surgery. It also helps diagnose many diseases in their early stage itself. During the scan, the patient is made to lie on a table attached to the CT scanner, a large doughnut-shaped machine. The CT scanner sends X-rays through the body area being studied. The most commonly performed CT scan is that of the brain.

bone mineral density

A bone mineral density test uses X-rays to measure the amount of minerals — namely calcium — in your bones. It can diagnose osteoporosis before a broken bone occurs. You can find out whether you have osteoporosis or if you should be concerned about your bones by getting a bone density test. We all lose some bone mass as we age. Bones naturally become thinner (called osteopenia) as you grow older. This test is recommended for menopausal women and also for those men and women who have risk factors.
