Diagnosis, treatment (invasive procedures) and follow up of patients according to physicians' referral. We perform plain radiography, ultrasonography, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and invasive procedures under CT and MRI, such as catheterization of blood vessels and ducts with or without balloon dilation and stent insertion, control of bleeding, abscess and cyst punctures and invasive biopsies.

Computerized Tomography Unit

The computerized tomography made a big change in radiological diagnosis. It became the first diagnosing tool in multiple trauma patients after bleeding control. CT scan can be done for almost all the organs of the body including cerebral angiography, cardiac CT, CT enterography, CT urography and more.

One of the unique uses of the CT scanner is CT sialography of the parotid gland and CT guided liver metastases ablation.
