Fortis Memorial Research Institute is highly committed to provide the community with superior quality, patient-focused diagnostic services. Diagnostic services at FMRI have expanded to become one of the best-in-class diagnostic service departments in Gurgaon with state-of-the-art equipment and advanced technology and procedures for enhanced patient safety and care. Our diagnostic services include
It is very much similar to an x-ray and meant to measure the density of bone accurately and quickly. This technique is primarily used to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone's mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased.
CT scans consist of a string of focused X-rays to produce a cross-sectional 3D-image of soft-tissue bodily structures inside the body, CT scans offer highly accurate results allowing in fast diagnosis and treatment.
We have a dedicated Digital Subscription Angiography (DSA) laboratory where fluoroscopy technique is employed to clearly visualised blood vessels in a bony or dense soft tissue environment. Images are taken using contrast medium by subtracting a 'pre-contrast image' or the mask from later images, once the contrast medium has been introduced into a structure.
The gamma camera is typically an imaging technique used to conduct functional scans of the brain, thyroid, lungs, liver, gallbladder, kidneys and skeleton.
Mammography is a special type of x-ray imaging used to create detailed images of the breast. Mammography can exhibit changes in the breast well before a woman or her physician can feel them. Once a lump is discovered, mammography can be key in evaluating the lump to determine if it is cancerous.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is actually an imaging test that uses high power magnets and radio waves to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. These images are then diagnosed to determine the condition of the area.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine, functional imaging technique that is employed to observe metabolic processes in the body. It is used primarily in clinical oncology (medical imaging of tumours and the search for metastases), and for clinical diagnosis of various diffuse brain diseases such as those causing different types of dementias. PET is also a vital research tool to check normal human brain and heart function, and support drug development.
It is much like an internal camera for the body which takes the pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound plays a pivotal role in patient screening and vascular disease follow-up.
This technique is largely used to look at the bones and to detect a range of conditions such as fractures & infections, arthritis, dental decay, osteoporosis, bone cancer, breast cancer, enlarged heart, lung infections, blocked blood vessels, digestive tract problems, and swallowed items.
