Radiology is the field of medicine that uses magnetic waves, X-rays, and ultrasound to get images of the body's internal condition. The images obtained through radiology allow the doctors to easily diagnose and detect illnesses and prepare care or treatment plans accordingly.
The radiologists effectively diagnose injuries and illnesses using different medical imaging procedures. Even the surgeons rely on professional radiologists to determine the exact problem and provide individuals with the right treatment.

We have a team of certified radiologists who works closely with specialist surgeons to detect illnesses and diseases accurately at the earliest. Acme leverages technically advanced tools to ensure the accurate diagnosis of the different health issues of individuals. We focus on delivering quality care to the patients and help in the early detection of diseases through imaging tests, with ensured optimum safety and comfort of the patients throughout the process.
We offer a wide range of essential radiology services to cater needs of different patients according to needs. Some of our radiology services are listed below-
X-ray, also known as radiography, uses a small dose of radiation to obtain a picture of the internal parts of the body and it’s condition of individuals. It is one of the oldest and widely used radiology services. X-rays help easily detect bone injuries, fractures, and infections. Locating the foreign objects present in the soft tissue is also possible using an x-ray. X-rays may even be used in combination with iodine-based materials to get a view of the blood vessels, tissues, and organs.
Computed Tomography (CT) refers to the imaging test that produces detailed images of bones, internal organs, and tissues. The images generated through a CT scan can be 3D images to be viewed on a computer, transferred to media devices, or printed. The CT scanner leverages x-rays and various other detectors that continuously rotates around the patient.
The x-ray passes through the body of the patient and gets absorbed with the help of detectors. The data collected is then analyzed on a computer. CT scanning is helpful in the diagnosis of different medical complications such as abdominal pain, trauma, cancer, infections, and even blood clots.
Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is the use of a strong magnetic field and radio waves to obtain detailed, clear images of tissues and internal organs. It does not involve any exposure to radiation. However, it involves exposure to radio waves. The MRI test takes about 30 to 50 minutes and consists of a number of imaging series. MRI reports are useful in diagnosing and evaluating diseases and tumors. At times, it may also be used for monitoring the child in the womb of a mother.
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) refers to the use of MRI imaging to study the blood vessel of a patient after contrast material is injected. MRA is useful in obtaining images of arteries present in the heart, aorta, brain, limbs, chest, pulmonary system, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, and neck.
Ultrasound is a non-radiation and non-invasive exam that makes use of sound waves to locate potential abnormalities and identify diseases. It is mainly used for examining body parts such as the breast, abdomen, blood vessels, female reproductive system, heart, and prostate. During the ultrasound process, a transducer is placed in contact with the body of the patient. The transducer emits high-frequency sound waves that pass through the body and send back echoes. Special computers are used in order to convert the echoes into visual data.
Digital mammography refers to a system used for identifying breast cancer and other potential abnormalities. It is an ideal alternative to traditional x-rays. It provides the doctors with electronic pictures of the breast of the patients for better identification of the abnormalities or issues. The mammography system is similar to the digital cameras. The images obtained through this technique are clearer and sharper in comparison to the x-rays.
Bone density scanning is a type of x-ray technology that monitors and evaluates bone loss. It is mainly used for the detection of osteoporosis. It can also help in measuring the potential risk of bone fractures. The patients are exposed to ionizing radiation to get images of the internal parts of the body in a painless procedure.
