  • Dental OPG

Conventional Radiology

Conventional Radiology procedures are performed on 800 mA X-ray systems using Fuji DR System for instant viewing. Medical grade monitors are available for accurate reporting of the X-rays. Film quality standards are uniformly high and closely monitored by senior faculty members

Digital Mammography (Mammomat Fusion)

State of the art Digital Mammography machine is dedicated to carry out screening for Breast Cancer as well as follow up of those diagnosed and under treatment or high risk cases.

Breast cancer being a leading cause of cancer mortality among women world-wide, it is important that screening be carried out for women at high risk (with family history of cancer) and routinely in women over 40 years of age. Mammography picks up lesions at an early stage when they are treatable by local resection and other modalities. Doubtful lesions require regular clinical as well as radiological follow-up.

Dental OPG

An Orthopantomogram (OPG) is a panoramic X-ray of the upper and lower jaws, including the teeth ie it gives you the status of all the teeth and oral cavity in one X-ray. The OPG unit is specifically designed to rotate around the patient's head during the scan and takes approximately 20 seconds to perform.

An OPG is used to look for
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated jaw
  • Infection
  • Dentition (eruption of teeth)
  • Surgical planning
  • Orthodontic treatment planning
