DEPARTMENTAL OBJECTIVES :

    To provide all kinds of radiological services for the patient care, teaching and research. This include:

  • Routine plain x- rays
  • We are having different x-ray machines with varying capacity to suit the different radiographic views . High frequency machine is used for chest and abdomen . All radiation protection measures are taken. In all examinations we try to keep the radiation dose as low as reasonably achievable.

  • Contrast studies
  • Various contrast studies like Barium studies, Intravenous urography, Retrograde Pyelography, Cystogram, Urethrogram, voiding cystourethrography, various arteriograms, Venograms, Sinusogram, Sailogram, Hysterosalpingogram etc.
    Contrast studies, also called special investigations , are conducted mainly by the radiologists. We undertake most of the investigations ranging from barium and IVU to angiogram , myelogram and hysterosalpingogram ( HSG ).

  • CT Scan, CT angiography, Virtual Bronchoscopy, Colonoscopy etc.
  • Jubilee Mission Medical College and Research Institute had installed CT scan at the earliest opportunity to begin with we were having a third generation body scanner . Recently we have installed a multislice spiral CT scanner . All CT investigations including angiograms, sagittal and coronal reformations , virtual bronchoscopy and virtual colonoscopy are routinely done . Image guided biopsy , FNAC and interventional procedures also are routine.

  • Mammography
  • On an average 5 mammograms are done daily . As it is a screening modality for early detection of breast cancer the rates are kept low . X-ray mammography will be combined with ultrasound scan of the breast and then only the final report is given. No prior appointment is needed for mammography.

  • Orthopantomography
  • For jaw lesions and dental diseases OPG is useful . For cosmetic surgery OPG is a must.

  • Dental X- rays
  • Dedicated dental x-rays are available.

  • Fluoroscopy facility
  • Image intensifier TV fluoroscopy is available in the main department , gastroenterology department and different operation theatres . With I I TV x-ray pictures can be directly seen instantaneously and operative procedures carried out.

  • Mobile and portable X- rays
  • Most expensive mobile and portable machines are available ; quite useful for bedridden and ICU patients.

  • Computed Radiography
  • Recently computed radiography facility has been installed . This is the first step towards a ‘ filmless radiology’ . Ultimately no x-ray film will be used and all the pictures will be studied on computer monitors kept at various places in the hospital.

  • MRI
  • Recently a new 1.5 T MRI has been installed. In MRI no harmful rays are used and so it is safe even to the pregnant woman.

  • Ultrasound scan
  • Latest model US machines with all the sophistications are used in the department. Congenital anomalies are diagnosed at an early stage of pregnancy. Several interventional procedures are carried out under ultrasound guidance. Probably a record number of hydrostatic reduction of intussusception is done here.

  • Bed side USG facility
  • For the very sick patient bed side portable USG is provided.

    TEACHING & TRAINING:

    Department is headed by Dr. Pavithran Valappilekandy. MD

  • Post Graduate Degree in Radiodiagnosis
    Every year two students are admitted for M.D course.
  • MBBS Course
    MBBS students have 2 week posting in Radiology. House surgeons spend one week as optional posting.
  • Diploma & Degree courses in Radiographic Technology
    From 2009 onwards the degree course is that of IGNOU . Previously it was of the Manipal University. Two year diploma course of the CMAI is also conducted.
  • Research / Publications
    Post graduates undertake research work mainly in connection with their thesis work. Doctors are encouraged to undertake research , attend conference and present papers . Weightage is given for publications in national and international journals.
