Endoscopy & Colonoscopy
Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor.
A colonoscopy (koe-lun-OS-kuh-pee) is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube allows the doctor to view the inside of the entire colon.
Our department provides the following endoscopy procedures:
- • Upper endoscopy - The oesophagus, stomach, and small intestines can be viewed by a thin flexible tube inserted through the mouth.
- • Colonoscopy - The lining of the large intestine, colon and rectum can be viewed by a flexible tube inserted through the rectum.
• Upper Endoscopy : You should not eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before the procedure. This includes gum, mints, tobacco, cigarette. You can usually have clear liquids (water juice, broth) after midnight up to 6 hours before the endoscopy.
Prior to appointment mandatory .
• Colonoscopy : Before colonoscopy you will need to clean out (empty) your colon by laxative, your doctor may suggest taking a lenitive ; either pill or liquid form. You shouldn’t eat solid food the day before the procedure. Drinks may be limited to clear liquids. 2-4 hours before the exam. In case of child ENEMA is given few hours before the exam.
A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps a doctor find out how well your heart handles work. As your body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen, so the heart must pump more blood.
Uroflowmetry is a test that measures the volume of urine released from the body, the speed with which it is released, and how long the release takes.
Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. The tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. This information can help your healthcare provider diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders.
An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It's a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart's health.
We guarantee the quality of ECG services under the supervision of highly qualified team of male & female technician and qualified doctors.
A Holter monitor is a small, battery-powered medical device that measures your heart’s activity, such as rate and rhythm. Your doctor may ask you to use one if they need more information about how your heart functions than a routine electrocardiogram (EKG) can give them.
Twenty-four hour Holter monitoring is a continuous test to record your heart’s rate and rhythm for 24 hours. You wear the Holter monitor for 12 to 48 hours as you go about your normal daily routine.
This device has electrodes and electrical leads exactly like a regular EKG, but it has fewer leads. It can pick up not only your heart’s rate and rhythm but also when you feel chest pains or exhibit symptoms of an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia.
An echocardiogram, often referred to as a cardiac echo or simply an echo, is a sonogram of the heart. (It is not abbreviated as ECG, because that is an abbreviation for an electrocardiogram) Echocardiography uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler effect to create images of the heart.
A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins for vascular flow studies.
Prior appointment and copy of the prescription is needed. Preparation: Echocardiography services are available against prior appointment. Patients with appointment should report at the centre 1 hour prior the appointment time.
We have highly experienced medicos and para-medicos manning the department.
A photographic or digital image of the internal composition of a part of the body Produced by X-Rays being passed through it.
We guarantee quality of X-Ray Services under the supervision of a highly qualified team of technicians and qualified Radiologists.
Special X-ray like: IVU, Ba-Meal, HSG, RGU, MCU etc also done here
A nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) is an electrical test that is used to determine the adequacy of the conduction of the nerve impulse as it courses down a nerve. This test is used to detect signs of nerve injury.
Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission. We guarantee the quality of NCCV/ EMG services under the supervision of highly qualified team of technician and qualified doctors.

GE LIGHTSPEED 4 SLICE CT SCANNER
LightSpeed Plus CT system is a whole body, multi-slcie helical CT scanner capable of scan speeds as fast as .5 second full 360-degree rotation scans, while acquiring multiple slice in a single scan rotation.
- • Faster scan times enable shorter breath holds, more comfortable exams, and a reduced occurence of rescans due to patient motion during the exam.
- • Routine scanning with image thickness selections at or below 1.25mm – optimizing lesion detection and facilitating the use of thinner images for volume presentations.
- • Lower dose 2 x .625 mm mode that allows both axial and helical acquisitions.
- • Reduced partial volume artifacts.
- • Four fundamental scan modes simplify multi-slice helical scanning.
- • Standard set for 30 clinically proven protocols and the ability to customize up to 300 total.
- • Built in breathing lights.
Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of high frequency sound wave. It is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, tissues, vessels and internal organs.
The steps you will take to Prepare for an ultrasound will depend on the area or organ that is being examined like-
- • Upper abdomen: (Liver, Gallbladder, Spleen & Pancreas) you should eat fat free meal on the evening before the test and then to avoid eating for 8-12 hours before the test except drinking clear water.
- • Lower abdomen: (Kidneys) you may be asked to drink four to six glass of water about 1 ½ or 2 hours before the test to fill your bladder. As well as you have to hold your urination for increasing pressure to your bladder.
• Whole abdomen: You have to avoid eating for 8-12 hours before the test to avoid gas build up in the intestines. You have to hold your urination for 1 ½ to 2 hour before the test.
Timings : Usually 8am onwards. Prior appointment and copy of the prescription is needed. We have facilities of
- • USG - Guided FNAC an inexpressive, reliable, rapid, safe, and accurate procedure for the diagnosis of retro peritoneal masses. It was more accurate in diagnosing benign rather than malignant lesions.
- • USG - Doppler study for varicose vein diagnosis is done by experienced Radiologists.
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. Brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses. An EEG can be used to help detect potential problems associated with this activity.
- • Wash your hair the night before or the day of the test, but do not use any conditioner s, hair creams.
- • Use your daily medications unless instructed otherwise.
