Radiodiagnosis

Overview

The Department of Radiodiagnosis is one of the premier departments of MGMCRI. The Department has rapidly progressed over the years to become one of the most advanced imaging centres in the state.

The department made a humble beginning in the year 2001 with three ultrasound machines and two x-ray machines. As of present, the department is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. The department has five ultrasound machines, thirteen x-ray machines including a fluoroscopy machine, a dual-slice as well as a 128 slice computed tomography system and a state of the art 1.5 Tesla MRI machine.

The department has become totally digital with the introduction of computed radiography and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) which makes the department filmless and also helps to serve the patients quicker. Digital radiography is to be implemented soon which will further strive to improve the quality of care given to the patient.

The aim of the management of the hospital is to provide excellent healthcare by striving to cater to the poor people of the region by providing radiological investigations that are being done at a subsidized cost.
