RADIOLOGY

DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY

The Department of Radiology is equipped with state of art equipments, which are the most sophisticated and technologically advanced available for medical imaging. The department provides “round the clock” services with a wide range of investigations – X-ray, Ultrasound, CT and MRI. It is a very busy department with a quick turn round time and approximately 400 Xrays, 35 CT and MRI scans are performed everyday.

The Department has two full time consultants, one registrar and two fellows running the Department. The unit is highly specialised in Musculoskeletal Imaging and has a Fellowship programme in Musculoskeletal Imaging which is accredited by the Tamilnadu Dr MGR Medical University. The radiologists work closely with the clinicians which eases the decision making process for the patient. The unit is also actively involved in the research acitivities of the hospital which helps to bring novel concepts in the field of Musculoskeletal Radiology.
