Providing support to the Clinicians is the Radiology & Imaging Diagnostic Services Department. The Radiology Department at NBNC provides services like MRI, doctor CT scan, stomach X-Ray and Ultrasound. The department carries out all routine examinations of Brain, Thorax and various 3D examinations along with guided FNACs. The department is equipped to take care of radiological investigations and carries out some Interventions for e.g., Percutaneous Drainage procedures like biliary drainage, nephrectomy, abscess drainage and plural fluid drainage carried out under USG guidance.
The Department of Radiology and Imaging at NBNC hospital offers services of:
• MRI SCAN (1.5 TESLA)
• COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY (CT ) SCAN (16 SLICE)
• COLOR DOPPLER STUDY
• DIGITAL X-RAY (300 Ma )
DEPARTMENT OF INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY – Introduction to the “No Knife – No Stitches” Treatment
Interventional Radiology (abbreviated IR or VIR for Vascular and Interventional Radiology, also referred to as Surgical Radiology) is a medical sub-specialty of radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. The concept behind interventional radiology virtual reality headset is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes.
As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, interventional radiologists pioneered modern minimally-invasive medicine. Using X-rays, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging modalities, interventional radiologists obtain images which are then used to direct interventional instruments throughout the body. These procedures are usually performed using needles and narrow tubes called catheters, rather than by making large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery.
Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. By minimizing the physical trauma to the patient, peripheral interventions can reduce infection rates and recovery time, as well as shorten hospital stays
