Our Diagnostics department is fully equipped with the latest technology and skilled technicians. Equipment includes: Computerised Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), angiography, ultrasound investigations, X-ray and fluoroscopy, OPG dental X-ray, 64-slice dual head CT scan, 1.5 Tesla MRI and mammography.
Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS)
PACS technology, now used by most of the leading hospitals in the world, is an electronic and filmless information system for acquiring, sorting, transporting, storing and displaying all types of medical images including X-rays, MRI and endoscopies. With the introduction of hospital-wide PACS, Wellkin Hospital intends to deliver the highest standards of quality and care. PACS enables immediate transmission of images to doctors in critical areas, thereby reducing delays in diagnosis.
Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
EMR refers to electronically maintained online medical records, which replace the heavy and cumbersome physical files of the past that restricted accessibility. EMR can be accessed at multiple locations by multiple users, reducing errors in medication and delays in patient monitoring .
Dual Source 64 Slice CT Scan
Our dual source CT scanner is an important advance in diagnostic cardiology, as the technology is twice as fast compared to other 64 slice CT machines and captures high resolution images of a beating heart in seconds without the need for heart slowing medications. For example, chest examinations now only require a scan time of 0.6 seconds.
High Field Strength MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Achieva 1.5T SE provides uncompromising quality in challenging applications such as large field-of-view for abdominal and breast imaging, uniform fat suppression in all anatomies, and consistent off-centre imaging, across patients of all heights and body weight.
Whole Body MRI
Whole Body MRI is effective for evaluating the entire skeleton in patients with suspected bone metastasis (cancer that has spread to the bone from other parts of the body) in a single imaging scan – and it only takes between 15 – 19 minutes. Besides its accuracy and quickness, the fact that it is an MRI scan means it is non-invasive and there is no radiation risk to the patient. Whole Body MRI can also detect metastases in other parts of the body besides the bones, such as in the brain, lung or liver.
