Digital X-ray (Radiography)
It is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Its advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.
Fully Automated Lab
Nowadays, some of laboratories are faced with considerable challenges: a lack of qualified technicians, increasing pressure to deliver more rapid results, and a steady increase in the volume of work. One of the key aims in our strategy is to provide labs with fully automated solutions to meet these challenges. Automation makes it possible to improve the care given to patients and enables significant gains in productivity.
In Our Aakash Wellness Centre, highly advanced machines are used by our experts.Vitros Immunodiagnosic & integrated system (ECI) Machine is used in our Centre which has enhanced chemi 1000 times more than sensitive & specific, intellicheck features etc. Latest versions of machines are used for testing thyroid, lipid profile, ESR, Haemogram count, urine etc at affordable rates.
Ultrasound & Color Doppler
It is used to visualize soft tissue structures in the body in real time. No ionizing radiation is involved, but the quality of the images obtained using ultrasound is highly dependent on the skill of the person (ultrasonographer) performing the exam and patient body habitus. Larger patients may have a decrease in image quality due to sound wave absorption in the subcutaneous fat layer. This results in less sound waves penetrating to organs and reflecting back to transducer, ultimately causing a poorer quality image.
Echo,TMT,Holter and ECG
Echo often referred to as a cardiac echo or simply an echo, is a sonogram of the heart. It uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart. Echo has become routinely used in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with any suspected or known heart diseases. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tests in cardiology. An Echocardiogram can also give physicians other estimates of heart function such as a calculation of the output, ejection, and diastolic function (how well the heart relaxes).
TMT or Cardiac stress test is a test used in medicine and cardiology to measure the heart's ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment.
The stress response is induced by exercise or drug stimulation. Cardiac stress tests compare the coronary circulation while the patient is at rest with the same patient's circulation observed during maximum physical exertion, showing any abnormal blood flow to the heart's muscle tissue (the myocardium).
The Holter's most common use is for monitoring heart activity (electrocardiography or ECG), but it can also be used for monitoring brain activity (electroencephalography or EEG) or arterial pressure. Its extended recording period is sometimes useful for observing occasional cardiac arrhythmias or epileptic events which would be difficult to identify in a shorter period of time. For patients having more transient symptoms, a cardiac event monitor which can be worn for a month or more can be used.
EEG is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp. EEG measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain. In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. Diagnostic applications generally focus on the spectral content of EEG, that is, the type of neural oscillations that can be observed in EEG signals.
EEG is most often used to diagnose epilepsy, which causes obvious abnormalities in EEG readings. It is also used to diagnose sleepdisorders, coma, encephalopathy’s, and brain death.
PFT & Audiometry
PFT is a complete evaluation of the respiratory system including patient history, physical examinations, chest x-ray examinations, arterial blood gas analysis, and tests of pulmonary function. The primary purpose of pulmonary function testing is to identify the severity of pulmonary impairment. Pulmonary function testing has diagnostic and therapeutic roles and helps clinicians answer some general questions about patients with lung disease.
