Backed by up to the minute technologies and services including pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical phases. We stay updated with the latest trends in technology to deliver accurate and reproducible results in the quickest possible time. Our department offers diagnostic services, which are seamlessly integrated with the hospital information system so that laboratory reports could be accessed by an authorized person from any remote location in the hospital.
- Interventional Radiology - Our interventional radiology department has the most advanced high-quality equipment such as Cath Lab with digital subtraction & 3-D rotational angiography, digital mammography & stereotactic breast biopsy system, premium colour Doppler machine.
- Cath lab – Our Cath lab is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of various heart problems using minimally invasive, catheter-based techniques. Our Cath lab is backed by up to the minute imaging equipment which are used to assess the arteries and analyse how well blood is flowing to and from the heart.
- Nuclear medicine – It is a specialized branch of medicine that involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials for diagnosing and evaluating a broad spectrum of diseases and ailments involving various organs and systems in our body. Nuclear medicine can be utilized in the assessment of heart function, detection of various cardiovascular conditions, devising efficient and effective treatment plans, detecting abnormalities in the lungs, evaluating musculoskeletal injuries, evaluating thyroid infection, etc.
State of the art diagnostic modalities offered at Yashoda Hospital include:
- PET CT Scan - Positron Emission Tomography is a diagnostic modality that helps to detect and evaluate a wide spectrum of diseases or abnormalities that affect your body from within. The technique involves the use of a camera and a small amount of radioactive material known as a radioactive tracer. These can either be injected or swallowed or inhaled. The traces tend to accumulate in those areas of the body in which the level of chemical activities is comparatively higher than the rest of the body. These appear as bright spots that offer functional information such as glucose utilization, receptor expression or enzymatic activity.
- Bone Density Scan – The scan helps to evaluate the density of the patient’s bones and assess their vulnerability to breakage. The procedure is usually performed on patients with osteoporosis. Tech-Bone Density Scan can help you track the prognosis of patients suffering from osteoporosis.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive test that helps to diagnose several medical conditions. MRI uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of internal body structures which are in great detail.
- Ultrasound - Ultrasound imaging helps to generate images of the body's internal structures with the help of a transducer or probe that generates sound waves. The procedure does not involve the use of ionizing radiations and helps to generate a clear picture of soft tissues that are not usually presented well on X-ray images.
- CUSA Machines - The CUSA uses ultrasonic frequencies to emulsify the target tissue. The cells dissociate from one another because of the ultrasound waves while the device irrigates the area with sterile saline. The same handpiece is used to aspirate the fluid back out of the surgical site.
- Digital mammography – Mammography is a technique that helps to generate x-ray images of the breasts, so as to detect the traces of breast cancer and several other medical conditions involving the breasts. Digital mammography, also referred to as full-field digital mammography (FFDM), does not involve the use of x-ray film. Instead, electronics are used to convert x-rays into mammographic pictures of the breast.
- Gamma Camera - Gamma camera helps to generate detailed images of the patient’s body using crystals of sodium iodine. This technique is also known as scintigraphy and is carried out via a minimally invasive approach.
- X-Ray – It is one of the most common imaging tests that help your doctor to get detailed images of the patient’s body. These images help the doctors to diagnose, monitor and treat a wide range of medical conditions without any incision.
- CT scan – Computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) uses rotating X-ray machines to generate cross-sectional images of the body. Compared to the normal X-ray images, a CT scan provides more detailed information of the blood vessels, soft tissues, and bones in various parts of the body. It can be used to generate images of the head, shoulders, spine, heart, abdomen, knee and chest.
