CT AND MRI

CT AND MRI

A CT scan, also called X-ray computed tomography (X-ray CT) and computerized axial tomography scan (CAT scan), makes use of computer-processed combinations of many x-ray images taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional images (virtual “slices”) of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.  

CT produces a volume of data that can be manipulated in order to demonstrate various bodily structures based on their ability to block the X-ray beam. Although historically, the images generated were in the axial or transverse plane, perpendicular to the long axis of the body, modern scanners allow this volume of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures.

What is an MRI scan?

MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. A combination of strong magnet and radio waves produce detailed pictures of the inside of your body. Unlike x-rays and CT (computerised tomography) scans, MRI scans do not use radiation.

An MRI scan to help us find the cause of your problem and the best treatment options for you. MRI scans are particularly good at identifying problems in the spine, brain, and joints. A standard x-ray does not give the same level of detail as an MRI scan.

Counterpulsation: A technique that synchronizes the external pumping of blood with the heart's cycle to assist the circulation and decreasing the work of the heart. Counterpulsation pumps when the heart is resting to increase blood flow and oxygen to the heart. Counterpulsation stops pumping when the heart is working to decrease the heart's workload and lessen oxygen demand. See

24x7 Chest Pain Emergency Response Center We launched Rapid Access Chest Pain Emergency Centre for express assessment of the patients who suffered chest pain and suspecting angina, a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.

The centre will offer services such as ECG, assessment by a specialist nurse and examination of the assessments by a consultant cardiologist. Any patient who wants to rule out the cardiac cause of the chest pain can either visit the emergency department or the Cardiology Centre of Excellence at our hospital at any time and can avail the services of this clinic as a special cardiac package.
