Imaging
Introduction

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. 

 
 

Doctors Hospital has the most advanced technology available in the world
for imaging equipment as well as the most
highly trained professiona personnel with radiologists
certified by the Mexican Council of Radiology and
Imaging, A.C. and with experience in different
imaging modes.


 Doctors Hospital has equipment and cutting edge technology to provide its patients with Interventionist Radiology studies, in order for opportune diagnosis and treatment with minimum invasion to be carried out to avoid subjecting patients to riskier and more costly studies.

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

 
Ultrasound
 here are multiple high-resolution transducers for general studies:

  • Abdomen
  •  Gynecological-obstetric
  •  Prostatic
  •  Thyroid
  •  Musculoskeletal, among others


Diagnostic and therapeutic studies:

  • Biopsy of liver tumors
  •  Biopsy of kidney tumors
  •  Biopsy of prostate tumors
  •  Biopsy of thyroid tumors
  •  Drains for pleural effusion
  •  Drains for abscesses and fluid collection
  •  Chemoembolization of tumors
  •  Vascular malformations, among others
 

Ultrasound studies for small structures:

  • Eyes
  •  Thyroids
  •  Salivary Glands
  •  Articulations
  •  Testicles
  •  Soft tissues, among others 
 
Tecnology and Equipment

Doctors Hospital has the latest generation of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Equpment, in the area of emergencies as well as on the first floor. The SIEMENS MRI Magnetom C is one of the most potent imaging systems within its category, with multichannel image projection that accelerates head to toe examinations, with a 0.3 Teslas open magnet, providing greater comfort for patients and physicians during the entire process and it is excellent for patients with claustrophobia.


.

The Siemens 3 Teslas MRI Magnetom Verio, with technology of total matrix images, allows the configuration the coils for each patient, creating a comfortable environment during the entire exam.  An intelligent control automatically detects and selects the elements of the coil that are adequate for the study and for the patient.  A larger opening in the resonance tube provides greater comfort for pediatric patients, patients who are overweight and those who suffer from claustrophobia.

.

In addition, in Doctors Hospital we have special software for angiographic and cardiologic studies, with 3D reconstruction and for three-dimensional reconstructions of small structures, such as the middle ear, for an adequate anatomical evaluation.

For functional resonance with applications in neurosurgery and psychiatry in the evaluation of tumors and chronic diseases, we have a specific breast coil with a fixation unit, which decreases the movement of the devices, as well as special coils to obtain images of articulations and dynamic studies of the spine with excellent image resolution. 

.
Doctors Hospital also has two Computarized Tomography machines, one of them in the ER, with 16 detectors and another with an double energy source on the First Floor, both with cutting edge technology and great fundamental resolution of images for early diagnostic support of multiple symptoms and traumatic events. The hospital has a 256-slice SIEMENS CT Somatom Definition Flash Scanner, designed especially for tomographies done in record time and with the lowest dosage of radiation due to the fact that it works with dual energy from two sources., allowing it to cover 43 cm.
of the field per second. An adult can be totally scanned in five seconds and a baby in only two. It has cerebral perfusion, pulmonary and cardiac applications, allowing it to analyze circulation for early diagnosis; software for carrying out Angio-CT studies with excellent resolution of the vascular martins and differentiation of atheromatous plaque, as well as applications in the musculoskeletal system and in 3D.
Special Studies

The Imaging Department has equipment and qualified staff available for intervention studies, such as:

- Cryoablation: a procedure that is used in the treatment of some tumors, in which cold is applied to freeze tumor cells, with imaging method guides such as ultrasound or computerized tomography. 

Guided puncture procedures, by minimal invasion imaging methods for biopsies, drainage of fluid collection or derivation of biliary or renal tracts. 

Nuclear medicine images and radiology are complementary and their fusion allows for 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, a radiological information system that permits images and reports on radiological studies to be filed and distributed.

To perform ultrasound studies, Doctors Hospital has latest generation equipment such as iU22, from Philips, together with the workstation.

Color Doppler ultrasound does studies of carotids, arteries of upper and lower limbs, superficial and deep veins of the lower limbs (communicating perforator veins), abdominal Doppler in transplants (liver, kidney, pancreas) and for ultrasound of the penis for erectile dysfunction, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

Formed by high resolution monitors (2-5 megapixels) connected to the information system and to the network to present, collect, and post-process images in order to read them and do a precise diagnosis; in addition to the digital storage of data and images, all of which can be recuperated at an time. 


Contact

The Imaging Department is located on the First Floor and it has high tech equipment.

It is available 24 hours a day and an appointment can be made by outpatients from Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It provides the greatest comfort and privacy required.

Dr. Gerardo E. Ornelas Cortinas,
Head of the DH Imaging Department, general, vascular imaging and imaging of the musculoskeletal system.
