The imaging department of Erfan Niayesh hospital, enjoying the latest technology of the world and using advanced equipment of Philips company, some of which has been installed and used for the first time in Iran, is ready to provide services for the customers.
This equipment includes:
- Ingenia 5 MRI machine (1.5 Tesla) with special applications to meet all needs and requests and unique features of angiography without injections and in-bore experience (to reduce the patient’s stress and anxiety)
- multi-slice CT Scan machine with unique features to compute stents size in case of CT angiography (AVA Stent Planning) and also OMAR for reducing artifacts arisen from metal prostheses used in the patient’s body
- Micro dose full digital mammography with 50% less dose of x-rays to the patient and the highest resolution and ability to diagnose microcalcifications of 50 microns in size, which is the only device with a depth of 15 bits to enhance image contrast and help precise diagnosis by the physician
- Digital radiography machines, fluoroscopy and BMD (bone densitometry);
Therefore, the department is ready to admit the patients and perform all imaging requests and biopsies even for high-weight patients (over 100kg) under the supervision of skillful and experienced physicians.
The 1.5 Tesla MRI machine used in Erfan Niayesh Hospital performs all simple and specific imaging of all parts of the human body including the brain, the spine, the abdomen, the pelvis, the joints, the skeleton, as well as MR angiography, MR Arthrography, MR urography, endorectal MRI for accurate investigation of prostate and pelvic masses, mammography MRI to investigate breast diseases, and whole body MRI to investigate metastasis and metastasis stage.
The CT- Scan machine used in this center is of spiral multidetector type. This device can produce high-quality 3D images including CT angiography of all body vessels and the virtual bronchoscopy and colonoscopy and HRCT in thin 1mm sections for more accurate investigations.
The Imaging Center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital is equipped with digital radiology and highly accurate fluoroscopy machines which are used for simple and specific radiology of all body parts. The digital radiology machine is one of the advantages of this center, as it is of prominent value in the provision of perfect imaging services.
Sonography is used to diagnose gynecological, neurological, ocular, hepatic, and cardiac diseases, as well as treatment of diseases (sonotherapy). The advanced sonography machine used by the center can perform two, three and four-dimensional and color doppler sonography of all body parts to investigate vascular lesions.
Mammography is one of the types of imaging used by low-dose x-ray to evaluate the breast. In the Imaging Center of Erfan Niayesh Hospital, the digital mammography machine is used for accurate investigation of breast diseases through magnification and marking.
In this center, all interventional procedures using CT scan and sonography including biopsy, FNA, drainage, nephrostomy, nerve block, etc., as well as vascular interventions including angiography, vascular port insertion, transjugular liver biopsy, and tumor embolization are performed under the supervision of radiology professors. This center is one of the first centers that provide interventional procedures.
