Radiology and Imaging Departments in Kochi.
The advanced use of imaging has become one of the best practices in the field of medicine, making it easier for medical experts to diagnose their patients’ diseases in a fast and safe method. Most of the medical tests today, require radiation to determine the diagnosis and analyse the response of a patient, post treatment.
VPS Lakeshore’s Radiology and Imaging Centre has all the most modern equipments which helps in exact diagnosis. The department is equipped with C.T. Scanners, MRI Scanners, Ultrasound Scanning Machines, Bone Densitometer, C-Arm, X-ray Machines, Ango Suite and Mammography Unit. The Key Highlights of this Department include:
MRI Scan - 3 Tesla 48 channel 70 cm wide bore MRI - Siemens Magnetom Skyra Tim + Dot System.
Features Small and open appearance, bound to reduce the patient’s anxiety and claustrophobia. A completely redesigned RF System and coil architecture is offered by Tim4G.
The Tim Application Suite includes Neuro, Angio, Cardiac, Body, Onco, Breast, Ortho, Pediatric, CT Fast View and Scientific Suite Syngo MR Software including 1D/2D PACE, Syngo BLADE, iPAT2, Phoenix, Inline Technologies, Syngo WARP and CAIPIRINHA.
Thorough Head and Spine examinations can be performed with highly purposeful programs. Unsupportive patients are provided with high resolution and fast protocols. The Suite also provides protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging and MRI.
Angio Suite MR Angiography of superlative quality can be done to visualize arteries and veins even without the presence of contrast agent.
Covers 2D routine cardiac applications, right from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. Features Syngo BEAT 2D with iPAT and T-PAT techniques.
Breast Suite MR Imaging is highly sensitive to breast lesions and is also the best for examining silicone implants. Temporal and high spatial resolution gained in a short time using iPAT with GRAPPA.
MR Breast examinations are swiftly evaluated by way of Soft Tissue differentiation, customized protocols and also flexible multi planar visualization.
Body Suite Covers all areas of clinical body application needs. Abdomen, Pelvis, MR Colonography, MRCP, Dynamic Kidney and MR Urography applications are provided with 2D and 3D protocols. 2D PACE technique makes body-imaging easier, by paving way for multi breath-hold examinations and free breathing during the scans. 2D PACE Inline technology reduces motion artifacts to a major extent.
Soft-tissue contrast, multi-planar capabilities and the possibility of selectively suppressing specific tissue, are all advantages of MR Imaging. This promotes the visualization of pathologies, particularly metastases. The Onco Suite possesses a spectrum of sequences and tools for evaluation and protocols, to guide during the detailed screening of clinical indications.
Ortho Suite Contains an outstanding set of protocols for spine and joint imaging. Avascular necrosis and internal derangements mostly suit MR Imaging. The protocols under ortho suite are also applicable to the imaging of infections and tumors.
Pediatric Suite The guidelines of Pediatric imaging vary, when compared to that for adults. The main aspects of this, are developing tissues, body size, heart-rate and limited compliance with breath-hold commands.
Supports a scientifically oriented user with smooth access to application-specific data which is required for further processing and advanced computation methods.
