The first and still the most advanced PET/CT scanner in this part of India operates at Galaxy Vidarbha. PET-Scan is done in the morning hours from 8 FDG(isotope/tracer) which is required for the scan is brought to Nagpur by air from Bangalore, Hyderabad or Mumbai. All the Patients from Vidarbha, MP, Chattisgarh region are benefited by this service. PET/CT is mainly done for cancer studies, for detecting disease, staging, re-staging, post operative evaluation, post chemo-radio response and long term follow-up. Since the tracer is to be injected for PET, patient needs to schedule prior appointments so that the FDG required for the scan is ordered accordingly. We have a team of expert technichians , physicians and radiologists of substantial experience from Tata Memorial Hospital and various different renowned cancer centres to report on these cases. We plan to do FDG PET/CT fusion infusion, sodium bone scan, PSP for prostatic malignancy, Dotatate scan for neuro-endocrinal tumors.
Galaxy Vidarbha uses high-field 1.5 Tesla MRI machine imported from Wipro-GE, USA. One of it’s kind machine in this area, it is fully loaded with advance software which can satisfy most of the required investigation needed through MRI. Mainstay of the MRI work is for brain,spine and joints.We do all types of abdominal studies like enterolysis, defaecogram, fistulogram, MRCP, apart from routine MRI studies. Angiography is with or without constrast. We also do breast and prostatic MRI studies. We do functional MRI, motor studies, BOLD imaging, DTI, spectroscopy, diffusion and perfusion studies. MRI is safe as there is no ionising radiation. It can be done during pregnancy, lactation and menstruation also.
Galaxy Vidarbha CT scan machine is Discovery 600 from Wipro/GE from USA. It is a multislice fast imaging machine. It makes use of computer-processed combinations of many x-ray images taken from different angles.It produces cross-sectional images of specific areas of the body.The multidetector CT scanner allows us to obtain multiple slices in a single rotation, resulting in images that are of high quality, detail and clarity, and faster speed.
Medical ultrasound (also known as diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, similar to visible light. Unlike light, however, x-rays have higher energy and can pass through most objects, including the body. Medical x-rays are used to generate images of tissues and structures inside the body.
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. The test tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small, flat metal discs called electrodes are attached to the scalp with wires and send signals to a computer.
