Radiology & Ultrasonography To Your Advantage At Gunasheela
You may be surprised to know that even before you were born on earth, you became a subject of radiology and ultrasonography. Does this sound confusing? Well, during the pregnancy of a mother, a gynaecologist conducts several ultrasonography tests based on the months of progress and such a test uses sound waves to produce images on the screen. These tests let the gynaecologist know the exact growth and status of the foetus in the mother’s womb.
On the flip side, radiology is a speciality medical imaging department that uses state-of-the-art imaging techniques such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), ultrasound, positron emission tomography, and X-ray to name a few here with a view to diagnosing and treating diseases seen within the body.
You know what there is a wide confusion among the masses whether radiologists are indeed doctors. Some opine that maybe they are just like the technicians who render everyday imaging services like the X-ray. In reality, radiologists are doctors who treat patients after diagnosing the actual disease through the imaging services mentioned above. You should know here that as per the law, every imaging test must be conducted under the prescription and supervision of a qualified doctor. Having said that, we mean, unless a doctor is present during an imaging test, the test must not be conducted at the medical facilities including the hospitals.
All those put together indicates the importance of radiology and the ultrasonography at every medical facility in India. You will be happy to know that we have a good number of radiologist and ultrasonography machines for the purpose of everyday investigations and of course, ahead of treating patients suffering from internal problems. However, it is the duty of a radiographer to acquire the medical images. A radiographer essentially works under a qualified radiologist and we at Gunasheela have state-of-the-art such setups with a view to meeting critical care and treatment to our patients.
What is medical ultrasound?
Medical ultrasound is popularly known as ultrasonography. However, it is often referred as the diagnostic sonography in medical terminology. An ultrasonography is an imaging technique that uses ultrasound for the purpose of image taking. An ultrasound means a high frequency sound in essence that is beyond the hearing ability of the human being. Ultrasound devices produce sound frequencies anywhere close to 20kHz or more leading up to several gigahertz. The application of ultrasound is manifold in the medical industry. For instance, an ultrasonic device is used for detecting objects inside one’s body and to measure the distances.
You will be happy to know that we regularly invest in the latest technology of this field. We have recently brought two units of 3D scans consisting 3D probe, vaginal probe, and antenatal probe. We have a team of 3 doctors and 5 scanning technicians who work round the clock here. We have successfully brought down the average scan report time to just 2-5 minutes and we are capable of 100-130 scans per day.
