Imaging

At Doctors Hospital we have the most advanced imaging equipment. This world-class technology allows us to have the most cutting edge diagnostic services and special treatments in Latin America.

In the Imaging Department we are able to do studies to obtain high quality images in order to carry out the most opportune diagnosis of our patients and, at the same time, when carrying out diagnoses, therapeutic procedures can be carried out with minimal invasion; thus avoiding procedures implying greater risks and higher costs.

In the Emergency Department equipment is available 24 hours a day for patients who arrive at the hospital needing immediate attention and diagnostic studies required are carried out opportunely for total recovery.

Services

There are rooms for X-ray studies with flat digital detection equipment that provides high resolution and rapidity with a minor emission of radiation. General radiology studies and studies with contrast agents are carried out, such as:

  • Swallowing mechanism


  • Esofagograms, esophageal-duodenal series

  • Study of Colon by Opaque Enema

  • Excretory urography


  • Mictional cystogram


  • Urethrograms


  • Hysterosalpingography

  • Fistulographies, among others

Technology and equipment

Magnetom de Siemens
Siemens Magnetom

Doctors Hospital has the latest equipment of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, both in the emergency area and on the first floor. MRI Magnetom C from SIEMENS is one of the most powerful imaging systems, within its category, with multichannel imaging that accelerates scanning from head to toe, with open magnet of 0.3 Teslas, which provides greater comfort to patients and doctors throughout the process and favors studies in patients with claustrophobia.

Magnetom Verio de Siemens
Siemens Magnetom Verio

3 Teslas Siemens Magnetom Verio MRI equipment, with total matrix image technology, allows the user to configure the coils to each patient, creating a comfortable environment throughout the exam, an intelligent control automatically detects and selects the coil elements appropriate to the study and the patient. A greater opening in the resonator tube, provides greater comfort to pediatric patients, overweight and claustrophobic.

Resonancia Magnética cerebral
MRI of the brain

In addition, in Doctors Hospital we have special Software for angiographic and cardiology studies, with 3D reconstruction and for three-dimensional reconstructions of small structures, such as the middle ear, for their proper anatomical assessment.

Functional resonance with applications in neurosurgery and psychiatry in the evaluation of tumors and chronic diseases. We have a specific coil for breast with fixation, which reduces the artifacts by movement, as well as special coils to obtain images of joints and dynamic studies of the spine with high image resolution.



TAC Somatom Definition Flash Siemens

Doctors Hospital also has two Computed Tomography equipment, one of them in the Emergency Department with 16 detectors and another with a double energy source on the First Floor, both with state-of-the-art technology and great fundamental image resolution, for the early diagnostic support of multiple suffering and traumatic events. The hospital has the SIEMENS Somatom Definition Flash TAC of 256 cuts, specially designed to make the tomographies in record time and with the lowest radiation dose because it works with dual energy of two tubes, allowing it to cover 43 cm. field extension

Ultrasonido y Doppler Color
Ultrasound and Color Doppler

To carry out ultrasound studies, Doctors Hospital has the latest equipment such as the Philips iU22, which together with the workstation.

Doppler Color studies of carotids, arteries of upper and lower limbs, superficial and deep veins of lower extremities (communicating and perforating veins), abdominal and transplant doppler (liver, kidney, pancreas), penis for erectile dysfunction, etc. are performed.



Special Studies

The Imaging Department has teams and qualified personnel to carry out intervention studies such as:

- Cryoablation: procedure that is used as a treatment for some tumors, and where cold is applied to freeze tumor cells, with the guidance of imaging methods such as ultrasound or computed tomography.

- Guided puncture procedures, by imaging methods with minimal invasion for biopsies, drainage of collections or bypass biliary or renal.

- The images of nuclear medicine and radiology are complementary, and their fusion will allow an integrated understanding of the pathology to be studied, thus responding to the need to obtain a detailed analysis and precise location of the pathology of our patients.

- RIS - Radiology Information System

- PACS - Picture Archive Computer System, radiological information system that allows the archiving and distribution of images and reporting of radiological studies.


Formed by high resolution monitors (2-5 megapixels), related to the information system and connected to the network to present, collect and post-process the images in order to make the reading and accurate diagnosis; In addition to digital storage of data and images, which can be recovered at all times.

TAC in Monterrey through the Somatom Definition Flash of Siemens

Doctors Hospital also has two Computed Tomography equipment, one of them in the Emergency Department with 16 detectors and another with a double energy source on the First Floor, both with state-of-the-art technology and high fundamental image resolution, for the early diagnostic support of multiple traumatic diseases and events.

The hospital has the SIEMENS Somatom Definition Flash CT of 256 cuts to make tomographies in record time and low radiation dose, covering 43 cm. field extension per second; being able to fully scan an adult in five seconds and a baby in only two.
