Imaging Services

What does we do in IMAGING SERVICES?

As a full spectrum IMAGING SERVICES we do the following services:

  • CT
  • X-Ray
  • Ultra Sound
  • C-ARM
  • Colour Doppler
  • ECG
  • Echo
  • EEG
  • EMG
  • NCV
  • PFT


BMRC Hospital provides a computerized tomography scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around hb your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body.It calls CT(Computerized Tomography) scan. CT scan of BMRC Hospital images provide more-detailed information than plain X-rays do. A CT scan has many uses, but it's particularly well-suited to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma. A CT scan can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury as well as to plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.


At BMRC Hospital we do a quick and painless X-ray test that produces images of the structures inside your body— particularly your bones. X-ray beams pass through your body, and they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material they pass through. Dense materials, such as bone and metal, show up as white on X-rays. The air in your lungs shows up as black. Fat and muscle appear as shades of gray. For some types of X-ray tests, a contrast medium — such as iodine or barium — is introduced into your body to provide greater detail on the images.

Ultra Sound:

At BMRC Hospital we do an ultrasound which is an imaging test that uses sound waves to create a picture (also known as a sonogram) of organs, tissues, and other structures inside the body. Unlike x-rays, ultrasounds don’t use any radiation. An ultrasound can also show parts of the body in motion, such as a heart beating or blood flowing through blood vessels. At BMRC Hospital we do two main categories of ultrasounds: pregnancy ultrasound and diagnostic ultrasound. Pregnancy ultrasound is used to look at an unborn baby. The test can provide information about a baby’s growth, development, and overall health. Diagnostic ultrasound is used to view and provide information about other internal parts of the body. These include the heart, blood vessels, liver, bladder, kidneys, and female reproductive organs. Other names: sonogram, ultrasonography, pregnancy sonography, fetal ultrasound, obstetric ultrasound, diagnostic medical sonography, diagnostic medical ultrasound.


At BMRC Hospital we do C-arm fluoroscopy as a intraoperative orthopaedic procedures which has become an important tool in modern orthopaedic surgical practice. It enhances the technical proficiency of the surgeon in addition to reducing the morbidity and length of hospital stay of the patient. Despite the documented benefits of this device, there has been a growing concern about the increased radiation exposure to the surgical team. We therefore present the review of the literature on the usefulness of C-arm fluoroscopy, pitfalls in application of the machine as well as the harmful radiation effects and precautionary measures that need to be observed when using the C-arm fluoroscopy in orthopaedic surgical procedures.

Colour Doppler:

At BMRC Hospital we do the Doppler uses a computer to change sound waves into different colors. These colors show the speed and direction of blood flow in real-time. At BMRC Hospital we use Power Doppler, is a newer type of color Doppler. It can provide more detail of blood flow than standard color Doppler.


At BMRC Hospital we do an echo to get the reflection of sound that arrives at the listener with a delay after the direct sound. The delay is directly proportional to the distance of the reflecting surface from the source and the listener. At BMRC Hospital we use Echocardiography as an extremely useful noninvasive tool in the assessment of children and adults with suspected cardiac problems.


At BMRC Hospital we do the Holter monitor used to detect or determine the risk of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias). Holter monitor is a small, wearable device that records the heart's rhythm. A Holter monitor test may be done if a traditional electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) doesn't provide enough details about the heart's condition. If the irregular heartbeats are infrequent, a longer-term monitor called an event recorder may be needed.


At BMRC Hospital we used Electroencephalogram (EEG) to test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you're asleep. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording.


At BMRC Hospital we used an Electromyography (EMG) as a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission. Motor neurons transmit electrical signals that cause muscles to contract. An EMG uses tiny devices called electrodes to translate these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that are then interpreted by a specialist.


At BMRC Hospital for speed of conduct of impulsive through a nerve we do NCV( Nerve Conduction Velocity ). This test is used to diagnose nerve damage. Both nerve conduction velocity (NCV) testing and EMG provide significant information regarding the site, severity, and prognosis of the nerve injury.
