Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow. It estimates how fast blood flows by measuring the rate of change in its pitch (frequency). Doppler ultrasonography is an invaluable tool in the diagnosis of occlusive vascular disease and is assuming increasing importance in the diagnosis of abdominal, pelvic, and fetal disorders. Doppler ultrasound test checks for injuries to arteries and veins.
The branch of radiology that deals with the nervous system. Neuroradiology projects include orbital volumetric analysis of microphthalmia, orbital holography and functional MRI eyelid and orbital structures using special surface coils. It accredited medical subspecialty specializing in minimally invasive image-based technologies and procedures used in diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to head, neck, and spine. Interventional neuroradiology involves diagnosis and treatment of central nervous system or head and neck lesions such as tumours, aneurysms, vascular malformations, or stroke.
Paediatric Radiology is a subspecialty of radiology involving the imaging of foetuses, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. New practices in ultrasound both in paediatric and general imaging is the use of elastography, which involves using sound waves to assess tissue stiffness. This is particularly useful for cancer detection, as tumours are often characterized by harder tissue.

Chest radiograph, colloquially called a chest X-ray, or chest film, is a projection radiograph of the chest used to diagnose conditions affecting the chest, and nearby structures. Chest images should be taken on full inspiration and erect when possible to minimize heart magnification and demonstrate fluid levels. It finds its place in sputum-negative patients not responding to a course of antibiotics. Chest radiographs are used to diagnose many conditions involving the chest wall, including its bones, and also structures contained within the thoracic cavity, lungs, heart, and great vessels.
Direct radiography is the latest technique to acquires the images and increase the quality of the image by reducing the materials and time. Digital X-ray specialist has more selections of Digital Radiography solutions including wireless panels, upgrade kits and complete rooms. Direct Radiography increases our patented Digital X-ray system with compliance and profitability. It is designed to help the health care providers and unique advantages.
A Sonogram is the image produced during ultrasonography, anything inside the body can be visualize by using diagnostic imaging technique that uses ultrasound. Sonogram is used to diagnose internal injuries such as pelvic bleeding and to locate cancerous cells.It is used to observe the growth of the fetus by the physicians, and to calculate the due date and age, and to see the presence of multiple fetuses.
Computed Radiography is a film replacement technology, a flexible phosphor imaging plate(IP) is used to capture digital images rather than conventional photographic film. The imaging plate is exposed to X-rays or gamma radiations and the image is stored in the plate of phosphor layer. The IP is read by the scanner, the focused laser releases the stored images in the form of the visible light photons. The photons which are collected and amplified by the scanner is further converted in to a digital signal and then transferred to the computer for processing and display.

Radioimmunoassay(RIA) is a keen vitro assay technique. By using antibodies RIA technique is used to measure the concentrations of antigens. Virtually it can be seen as inverse of radio binding assay, which quantifies an antibody by use of corresponding antigens. Even though the RIA technique is extremely sensitive and specific it may requires the specialized equipment to perform such measurements. Example of radioimmunoassay is RAST test (radio allegro sorbent test), this test is useful to detect the causative allergen foe an allergy.
Computed tomography (CT) scan is an imaging technique that uses x-rays to form images of cross-sections of the body. X-rays are a sort of electromagnetic wave, rather like visible radiation. An X-ray machine sends individual x-ray particles through the body. the pictures are recorded on a laptop or film.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses an immense magnet and radio waves to appear at organs and structures within our body. Health care professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a range of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are terribly helpful for examining the brain and spinal cord. Single MRI images are referred to as slices. the images can be stored on a computer or written on film.

The ultrasound imaging of the head/Cranial uses sound waves to provide images of the brain and cerebrospinal fluid.It is most typically performed on infants, whose skulls havent fully shaped. A transcranial doppler ultrasound evaluates blood flow within the brain’s major arteries. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive, and doesnt use ionizing radiation.
The spine can be imaged with X-Ray, CT and MRI. X-Ray and CT are often performed initially in trauma patients to evaluate for fracture. MRI is much better at evaluating the soft tissue structures including the spinal cord, nerve roots, ligaments and disks. MRI is the imaging modality of patients with back pain and radiculopathy symptoms.

The abdominal radiograph (AXR) is performed almost exclusively in the supine position and in the AP (anteroposterior) projection, i.e. the x-ray beam passes through the patient from front to back. Historically the abdominal radiograph was performed in both supine and erect postures, but this practice has been discontinued due to concerns over often excessive radiation dose. The Royal College of Radiologists recommends that when a patient presents with an acute abdomen, a single supine abdominal radiograph is performed. If there is the clinical suspicion of an associated intra-abdominal perforation, then an erect chest radiograph should also be performed.
Mammography is a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays to detect cancer early—before women experience symptoms—when it is most treatable. Mammography plays a central part in the early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you or your physician can feel them. Some of the mammography techniques include Breast Tomosynthesis, Galactography (Ductography), Magnetic Resonance (MRI), Guided Breast Biopsy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)-Breast, Mammography, Scintimammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, Ultrasound - Breast, Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy.
