Lokman Hekim, which is the industry pioneer in health sector,also gives the ample prominence to use all and every possibilities of modern technology in diagnostic imaging, distinction,which is an indispensable part of the first step is to offer our services to our patients. Thanks to the perfect harmony between the radiology departments, which provide uninterrupted service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in our hospital,provides service in all sub-branches of radiology.
In the radiology department, during the diagnosis of diseases in general, operations such as taking images from the problematic area of the patients, intervention to the patient through interventional procedures and taking a piece for examination in pathology are performed.
In the department of radiology, an experienced team consisting of specialist physicians, technicians graduated from their respective departments, technicians, medical secretaries and auxiliary personnel provides service.
Diagnostic Devices Serving in the Radiology Department:
- 5 T Magnetic Resonance (MR)
- Multi-detector Computed Tomography (CT)
- Ultrasonography (USG)
- Color Doppler Ultrasonography (RDUSG)
- 4D ultrasonography (4D USG)
- Bone Mineral Densitometry
- Conventional X-Ray
- Panoramic X-Ray
- Magnetic Resonance (MR)
Some of the protons in the human body can be manipulated by Magnetic resonance by sending radio frequency waves.This device by this way,can take images of the human body. X- rays, which are used in direct radiographs, are not used in MR . Thanks to this, when deemed necessary by the physician, MRI can be performed on pregnant women . With the use of MR device,all of our organs within our body can be displayed.Thanks to MR angiography, our veins in our body can be reliably and effortlessly visualized simply by administering medication through a superficial venous vein in our arm .
Multi-detector Computed Tomography (CT)
With the CT device , whole body imaging can be performed in a very short time as little as 25-30 seconds . In addition, 3D studies can be made from these images . X- rays are used to take images in the CT device . Because of this fact,our pregnant patients should be careful. X- rays can harm human health when taken in excessive continuous doses. Since the device in our hospital has CARE Dose4D and multi-detector features, the dose values taken by the patient are at minimum values. Thanks to the CT device’s ability to take 0.75 mm thin sections, we have the opportunity to catch even the smallest signs of diseases within the body. Our peripheral organs including many for the display of multi-vessel process by giving the drug from an arm vein in our veins we are able to effortlessly thanks to CT angiography.
USG is a method of obtaining images by sending sound waves at frequencies that cannot be heard by the human ear to the organ to be examined by means of probes . With this method, the structure of the superficial and internal organs and the diagnosis of diseases can be easily made without causing any harm to the patient . Most of the interventional examinations can be performed reliably with USG.
Color Doppler ULTRASONOGRAPHY (RDUS)
It works on the same principle as the ultrasound device . Color Doppler device is used to determine whether the blood circulation in the veins is normal or not in a quick and easy way. In addition, we can easily measure the heartbeat of the baby in pregnant women with a color doppler device.
4D ultrasonography (4D USG)
With 4D USG, we can view the appearance of the baby in the mother’s womb from different 4 dimensions when our pregnant patients are 30 weeks old on average.
Angiography is of great importance in the diagnosis and rapid intervention of some vascular diseases, especially vascular disorders such as aneurysms. As soon as the diseased vein is detected in angiography, the vein can be intervened. (such as balloon expansion, stent insertion.) In this way, the patient can be treated without the need for surgery.
Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD)
Early diagnosis of osteoporosis is very important in terms of preventing or slowing down the disease . Bone resorption is defined as osteopenia and its advanced stage is defined as osteoporosis. It is of great importance that our patients, especially in the menopausal stage, have regular kmd measurements under the supervision of a doctor .
Conventional X-ray (direct graphy)
It is popularly known as x-ray. It is widely used in the diagnosis of pathologies due to its short time and cost-effectiveness. Direct radiographs are obtained using X-rays.
With panoramic x-ray, we can view the entire jaw and teeth in a single film. Thanks to its high resolution, diseases in the roots of the teeth can also be visualized.
Periodic mammography examination is recommended for women aged 40 and over . With the help of mammography, early detection of breast masses can prevent the progression of breast cancer . One of the most common types of cancer in women is breast cancer. By marking the masses or microcalcification clusters in the breast with a wire, the boundaries of the area that needs to be removed by the surgeon who will perform the surgery are determined. In this way, a small incision can be made with a point shot and the problem area can be completely removed from the breast .
