Radiology is the branch of healthcare where various imaging techniques are used to see inside the body to make a diagnosis. A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose and/or treat diseases. Therefore, Radiology is one of the most important medical branches for successful diagnosis. At burjeel medical city we offer high standards of radiological investigation with an Imaging Department that has its own X-ray unit, Radiographer and Specialist Radiologist – as well as conventional radiology, ultrasonography, and advanced imaging facilities.
The Diagnostic imaging department at BMC is fully equipped with state of the art machines including two MRIs (3T and 1.5T) equipped with advance cardiac MR imaging software, whole body MR imaging software, advanced neuro imaging with MR Spectroscopic imaging for tumor detection, Prostate MRI, Breast MRI and MR Enterography. This faster MRI uses less than 3 minutes to complete a brain scan for stroke patients.
1.5T intraoperative iMRI (first of its kind in UAE) gives real time view of brain resulting in increased precision and accuracy to neuro-surgeons.
There are two CT scanners with 256 slice and 128 slice machines with advanced software for 3D imaging of heart including coronary artery disease, CT Angiography for imaging of blood vessels including head, neck, chest, abdomen and peripheral vessels. Brain perfusion and faster whole-body imaging for cancer staging with dynamic radiation dose reduction.
Digital Radiography and Video fluoroscopy
Equipped with 2 DR systems and one Cine fluoroscopy machine. All general radiography procedures, various fluoroscopic procedures like barium swallow, barium meal and barium enema can be performed. Video fluoroscopy for assessment of swallowing disorder in cancer patients.
Ultrasound procedures including Abdomen ultrasound, Obstetric ultrasound, Breast ultrasound including elastography, Musculoskeletal ultrasound, Small parts ultrasound and all doppler procedures.
Key to detecting Breast Cancer, this test helps detect the disease in its nascent stage and thus, opening more and better avenues for cure.
Image guided FNAC, biopsy, pleural and ascitic fluid aspiration.
Hologic mammography with Tomosynthesis is next level imaging of breast and breast biopsy.
Hologic Dexa scan is best in the market for evaluation of bone mineral density for diagnosing osteoporosis.
