Radiology

Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging to diagnose and treat disease seen within the body. Radiologists use a variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of (usually minimally invasive) medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies.

Cancer Awareness and prevention

While there have been strides in the diagnostics, prevention and cure of Cancer, a lot still needs to be done in this regard. 4th February is celebrated worldwide as “World Cancer Day”.  As a positive and proactive approach to the fight against Cancer, Islamabad Diagnostic Centre feels its responsibility and offers 20% special discount for […]

CT Scan (Computed Tomography)

Have you ever bought a pre-sliced loaf of bread? You know that when you look between the slices you can tell if there is anything wrong with it. That is how Computed Tomography (tomo-slice; graph-picture) works. The target body part is put through a virtual “bread slicer” that creates slice images with tiny intervals. During […]

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

In early 1980s the invention of MRIs revolutionized the diagnostic imaging industry with a non-invasive diagnostic imaging technique that provides superior resolution without side effects. MRI creates detailed images, allowing physicians to view inside of the human body with precision. MRI has no side effects because it uses magnetic signals (not radiation) to see through […]

Digital X-ray

X-rays are the oldest and most popular form of diagnostic medical imaging. They are performed using a form of ionizing radiation that is projected through the body onto a piece of specialized film. Different tissues have different densities and therefore absorb this radiation in different amounts, causing the film to record only what is not […]

Mammogram

A mammogram is an x-ray image of the breast tissue. It uses small amounts of ionizing radiation that pass through breast tissue to produce images on film. Today mammography is the top tool for breast cancer prevention and diagnosis. In fact, it is recommended that all women get yearly mammograms starting at the age of […]

Ultrasound

What is ultrasound? Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of internal body structures. Real time 3-D image technology also called 4D used by IDC has revolutionized these studies to next level. Ultrasound waves were used initially to detect icebergs in water after Titanic tragedy. In medical sciences ultrasound waves were first used during late […]

Doppler Studies

What is Doppler? Doppler scan also uses sound waves to monitor the blood flow in blood vessels. It is a reliable test to measure the blood circulation in various organs. Doppler/ Duplex types: Carotid Doppler gives details of blood circulation towards brain from heart. Renal Doppler demonstrates blood flow to kidneys. Fetal Doppler monitors blood flow to baby […]

Fluoroscopy

What is Fluoroscopy? Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures–similar to an X-ray “movie.” A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy is used in many types of […]

Histopathology

The histopathology department is staffed by competent, experienced and highly qualified consultant histopathologists. The histopathology lab is manned by skilled medical technologists working under close supervision of our consultant pathologists and lab managers to ensure accuracy, quality and promptness of histopathology reports. Facilities and Services at Histopathology Laboratory Surgical Pathology: Surgical specimens such as mucosal endoscopic […]
