Digital X-RaysX-Ray Services at Magan Medical Radiology Department

Digital X-rays

X-rays in the form of X-ray films or radiographs are now things of the past. Magan Medical Radiology Department now offers digital X-ray. Digital X-ray provides images that are viewed on the computer monitor. The digital image has better image quality and allows for digital enhancement. Digital images are easy to store and environmentally friendly. Moreover, digital X-rays are safer, as both the radiation dose and the exposure time are less as compared to the traditional X-ray procedure.

Digital Mammography at Magan Medical Radiology Department

Our top of the line Hologic digital mammography system allows for sharp, detailed images with superior resolution and reduced exposure and compression time. The fully automatic, self-adjusting, self-releasing tilt compression paddle conforms to the natural contour of the breast, making positioning easier and offering incomparable patient comfort.

Advantages of a digital mammogram and CAD system:

  • Selenia MammogramDigital images are produced electronically, instead of on film, with a larger viewing area that better accommodates diverse shapes and sizes.
  • Faster — images are generated within seconds — and more accurately.
  • Images can be magnified and manipulated for optimum clarity.
  • Electronic images make it easier for consultation among health care specialists and reduce the risk of misplaced or damaged films.
  • All images are double-checked using computer-aided detection (CAD). This computer software searches for abnormal areas of density, mass, or calcification that may indicate the presence of cancer. The CAD system highlights these areas on the images, alerting the radiologist to the need for further analysis.
