WHOLEBODY MULTISLICE CT SCANNER(MS CT) - CTscanning—sometimes also called CAT scanning—is a
   noninvasive, painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions quickly and with
   higher levels of accuracy. CT scans of internal organs, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels provide greater
   clarity than conventional x-ray exams. It also provides. MSCT facilitates a wide range of clinical applications
   ranging from 3D imaging to Perfusion Imaging to CT Fluoroscopy.

The benefit of MSCT are:
   An improved scan speed and availability of isotropic imaging.
   Unparalleled capabilities for detailed analysis of normal and abnormal anatomy and pathology

ULTRASOUND SCAN WITH 4D: is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize
   muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time
   tomographic images. They are also used to visualize a fetus during routine and emergency prenatal care. 4D
   just means that life like pictures can be seen to move in real time so that the activity of the baby inside the
   womb can be studied.

OPG: An Orthopantomogram also known as an "orthopantogram" or "panorex", is a panoramic scanning dental
   X-ray of the upper and lower jaws. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.

MAMMOGRAPHY: is the process of using low-dose X-rays to examine the human breast. It is used to look for
   different types of tumors and cysts. Mammography has been proven to reduce mortality from breast cancer.

BONE DENSITOMETRY – DEXA: Bone Densitometry - Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy x-ray
   absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA) is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss.
   DEXA is today's established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD).

In medical imaging, P icture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) are computers or networks
   dedicated to the storage, retrieval, distribution and presentation of images. PACS replaces hard-copy based
   means of managing medical images, such as film archives. It expands on the possibilities of such conventional
   systems by providing capabilities of off-site viewing and reporting (distance education, tele-diagnosis). This
   means that doctors need only have access to the facility and are able to make diagnosis from any distances.
   Additionally, it enables practitioners at various physical locations to access the same information
   simultaneously, ( tele radiology). With the decreasing price of digital storage, PACS systems provide a growing
   cost and space advantage over film archives.

EEG: Electroencephalography is the neurophysiologic measurement of the electrical activity of the brain by
   recording from electrodes placed on the scalp or, in special cases, subdurally or in the cerebral cortex. The
   resulting traces are known as an electroencephalogram (EEG)

EEG in various forms is most useful as a tool for monitoring and diagnosis in certain clinical situations:
to distinguish epileptic seizures from other types of spells, such as psychogenic non-epileptic seizures and     syncope (fainting)
to categorize seizures for the purposes of treatment
to monitor for non-convulsive seizures/non-convulsive status epilepticus coma, encephalopathy and brain     death monitoring depth of anesthesia
as an indirect indicator of cerebral perfusion in carotid endarterectomy

Nerve Conduction Study: NCS is a test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially the ability of
   electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body. Nerve conduction studies are
   used mainly for evaluation of paresthesias (numbness, tingling, burning) and/or weakness of the arms and legs.
   The type of study is determined by the problem. Some of the common disorders which can be diagnosed by
   nerve conduction studies.

BERA: BERA (Brainstem Auditory Evoked Responses) test is performed in children who have suffered meningitis    to check for hearing loss, which can occur in children who have suffered from meningitis. It is important to
   detect hearing impairment because a normal hearing is essential for normal development of speech and

Various other tests like EMG, VEP are also carried out.
