  • Philips Ingenuity 128-channel Multi-slice CT scanner
  • We participated in the VII Avon Walk to support the Fight Against Breast Cancer.
    We participated in the VII Avon Walk to support the Fight Against Breast Cancer. See the photos.

  • We acquired a direct digital mammograph Siemens Mammomat Inspiration

  • We perform myocardial perfusion exams at rest and with stress using thallium, the only imaging service that does this type of study in the country

  • 1.5 Tesla Philips Achieva Resonator

Computed tomography is an x-ray exploration that produces detailed images of axial cuts from the body. Instead of getting an image as the x-rays, a CT scan gets multiple images by rotate around the body. A computer combines all these images into a final image that represents a cut of the body as if it were a slice. This machine creates multiple images around region of the body to study.
Nuclear Medicine is defined as the branch of medicine that uses radioactive isotopes, nuclear radiation, electromagnetic variations of the components of the kernel and related biophysical techniques for the prevention, diagnosis, therapeutic and medical research
To produce images without the intervention of ionizing radiation, the MRI is obtained by subjecting the patient to an electromagnetic field with a magnet of 1.5 Tesla, equivalent to 15000 times the magnetic field of our planet.
The radiology department employs advanced technology incorporating digital radiology equipment that facilitates the realization of studies and decreases the time of duration of the procedures.
Mammography is the best imaging method currently available to us to detect minimal breast lesions, mainly of small carcinoma that are manifested only by micro calcifications or tumors less than 1cm. in diameter, non-palpable during the medical examination. Remains the only screening method for any malignancy which proved to be effective by randomized studies, detecting 95% of cases of breast cancer.
Osteoporosis is the most common bone metabolism disorder. It is characterized by a decrease in the amount and structure of bone tissue that results in a loss of bone strength and an increased susceptibility to fractures. Bone densitometry is a method to determine the amount of bone mineral or mineral density in the bones. Still the method of first-line in the study of osteoporosis.
