Ultrasound, In-House X-Ray, IVU, MCU, RGU, Nephrostograms and CT Scan

Uroradiology refers to the Radiology of the urinary tract. At KM NU Hospitals IVU, MCU, RGU, and Nephrostogram are the Radiodiagnosis performed.

COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) or Computerized Axial Tomography(CAT) scan:

COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) uses a computer that takes data from several X-ray images of structures inside a human’s body and converts them into pictures on a monitor.

Tomography is the process of generating a 2-dimensional image of a slice or section through a 3-dimensional object. Similar to looking at one slice of bread within the whole loaf.

The Siemens Somatom Scope is a whole-body CT Scanner with fast scanning speed, low dose and excellent image quality providing a complete range of CT applications. It has many advanced and newer features such as CARE Dose 4D, IRIS, SureView reconstruction algorithm and Adaptive Signal Boost technology which help reduce the dose, reduce noise and significantly improve image quality.

CT scanning generates cross-sectional images of the human body, which allows Radiologists to evaluate the internal organs in great clinical detail. Any abnormality is easily picked up on a CT Scan. It can also be used to generate 3D reconstructions, volume reconstructed images etc., which facilitate a better understanding of clinicians.

Almost all organs can be scanned with a CT Scanner including:

  • Brain, Orbit, PNS and Neck
  • Chest, Abdomen and Pelvis
  • Joints and Spine with 3D CT
  • CT Angio: Brain, Carotid, Pulmonary, Aorta, Renal and Peripheral
  • CT Urogram
  • Virtual Colonoscopy and Bronchoscopy
  • Dental CT

Our CT SOMATOM Scope includes cockpit technology. Our CT most importantly enables us to comply with the NEMA XR-29 Smart Dose Standard and ensures a safer imaging experience for patients.

Our CT, SOMATOM Scope utilizes Siemens’ iterative reconstruction in image space (IRIS) technology, which accelerates Image Reconstruction while Reducing Noise and artifacts. It also includes Siemens’ Fully Assisting Scanner Technology (FAST) and Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure (CARE) applications that help reduce radiation exposure and standardize the CT imaging process.
