Radiology, Imaging & Laboratory Services
This branch of medical sciences emphasizes the utilization of radiation and ultrasound along with MRI for diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of diseases. Radiodiagnosis includes interventional procedures along with a focus on anatomy, physiology, and pathology. In addition to this, the branch is considered to be of utmost importance for the identification, treatment, and follow-up of cancer-related diseases. The advanced techniques of radiology use non-ionizing forms of radiation and thus, provides therapy for curing several cancer-related diseases.
Radiologists can assist in the detection of multiple diseases
The Gastrointestinal (GI) radiology is a subspeciality that is specifically focused on diagnostic imaging of the gastrointestinal or digestive tract and the abdomen for the detection of diseases related to the stomach and the intestines. Thus, it includes procedures like CT Scan, fluoroscopy, MRI, X-Ray, ultrasound including specific GI procedures like a biopsy. Moreover, genitourinary radiology aims at the diagnosis and treatment of diseases associated with the urinary and reproductive systems of the individuals. Thus, the procedures can help patients to overcome problems like the removal of kidney stones and uterine fibroid removal in females.
Radiation oncology is one of the effective means to cure different types of cancer
Radiation therapy is primarily used to treat multiple forms of cancer along with other non-malignant diseases. One of the most effective and safe treatments, radiation therapy shows positive results to patients suffering from cancer and thus, cure cancer to some extent. The therapy can be applied to any type of cancer and destroys the cells damaged due to cancer, thus, preventing their further growth, multiplication and spreading. Radiation therapy can be performed through high energy radiations like gamma rays, high energy x-rays, and electron beams.
