Centre for Interventional Radiology

Medical radiology and imaging technology are an irreplaceable component of modern diagnostic services. At Cauvery Heart & Multi-Speciality Hospital, Department of Radiology and Imaging is a synergy of the advanced radio-imaging facilities, skilled radiologists and technicians, so as to offer, the referring doctors and the patients, an overall assessment of suspected diseases or anomalies.

Diagnostic radiologists make use of latest technological advances in radiation, magnetism, and sound waves to explore disease-causing structural changes or defects. At Cauvery Heart & Multi-Speciality Hospital, Department of Radiology and Imaging supports physicians and surgeons to explore disease-causing structural changes or defects with radiology and imaging diagnostics such as Multi – slice CT, vascular doppler, ultrasonography, digital X-ray (roentgenography), 3D mammography, gastroscopy, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy and fluoroscopy.

The radiologists closely work with specialty clinicians to ensure all the required information is interpreted from the diagnostic data. Also, the team works together to reduce the possible risks and complications that are related to the procedure.

Virtual procedures such as 3D virtual bronchoscopy, 3D virtual colonoscopy, have paved new paths towards unprecedented surgical outcomes especially in neurosurgery and pulmonary surgery divisions. These intra-operative diagnostic procedures not only offer surgeon the ease and better surgical-site approach but also an array of benefits to the patient. Improved surgical corrections in a single sitting, lesser complications, smaller incisions and scar, faster recovery and sooner return to the normal routine are some of the patient-centric benefits. Also with technical advances, in many cases these days, radiological procedures successfully obviate the need for invasive procedures.
