Today’s innovation and modern technology enable the healthcare provider to have many options when it comes to diagnosing a patient’s condition. These techniques may be invasive, exploratory, and are minimally or non-invasive. Diagnostic radiology refers to a group of methods that utilize non-invasive techniques to identify and monitor certain diseases.

Diagnostic radiology can be used to identify a wide range of problems. Broken bones, heart conditions, blood clots, and gastrointestinal conditions are just a few of the problems that can be identified by diagnostic imaging. In addition to identifying problems, doctors can use diagnostic radiology to monitor how your body is responding to a current treatment. Diagnostic radiology can also screen for diseases such as breast cancer and colon cancer.

At UCF, we offer state of the art diagnostic imaging services including Radiography (X-rays) and Ultrasound to deliver high quality care with minimal risk at an affordable price point. These services are related to the field of medicine that uses non-invasive imaging scans to diagnose a patient. The tests and equipment used sometimes involve low doses of radiation to create highly detailed images of an area.

Moreover, UCF is uniquely positioned with vast experience and expertise that can be used for patient care whenever necessary.

As healthcare delivery continues to change, it’s critical to offer patients effective and efficient diagnostic services. Therefore, UCF offers Professional Diagnostic Services with next-day turnaround for an outstanding customer experience right from your appointmentto receiving results and one-on-one discussion with our healthcare experts.

UCF strives in delivering exceptional patient outcomes combined by providing personalized radiological services across various specialties including X-rays and Ultrasonography.

Radiology has helped in the diagnosis and treatment of several diseases related to the gallbladder, pancreas and kidney. It also helps us detect colorectal cancer (cancer of large intestine) at an early stage, when it is easier to treat.

Radiological Imaging

Radiology is a type of diagnostic imaging to diagnose pain and diseases by analyzing the image scans of the body. These images provide information about the internal structure and dynamics of the body to detect abnormalities and identify the source(s) of pain too. It includes scans such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs), CT scans, x-rays, PET scans, and ultrasounds. Radiological imaging is a non-invasive procedure to diagnose many ailments and it does not involve surgical procedures. These scans help to diagnose many diseases, such as cancers, blood clots, heart conditions, and broken bones and find the origin or the source of pain in the body. We offer all types of radiological imaging including abdominal radiology, cardiovascular and thoracic radiology, emergency radiology, interventional radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, and pediatric radiology.

  • X-rays are a form of conventional radiology. The tissues absorb only a fraction of the x-rays and the remaining unabsorbed rays collect on the analog image or on digital media to create radiological images. This is the most widely used x-ray technique also used for studying the lungs and skeletal frame.
  • CT scans form images of different tissues, such as joints, bone, lungs, blood vessels, and abdominal viscera. CT scans are better for scanning blood vessels, soft tissues, and bones, whereas x-ray examines dense tissues. They are 3D images and more powerful than x-rays.
  • Angiography detects blood vessel malformations, arterial thrombosis, vascularisation of a tumor, and other abnormalities. This procedure is carried out under anaesthesia.
  • Ultrasound

    Ultrasound uses sound waves with high frequency to produce images of organs and vessels in the body. It very accurately produces images of fluid filled or soft organs in the body. The sound waves applied through a transducer echo in the body to produce real-time images on the screen of the computer.

    • 2D ultrasound produces flat, two-dimensional images of the tissue being scanned.
    • 3D and 4D ultrasounds are more detailed scans. In the 4D scan, the time variable is also added to create more realistic representations.
    • The doppler ultrasound checks blood flow and pressure in the blood vessels. It is preferred over the X-ray angiography method because it does not involve a contrasting dye injection. Power doppler is a more detailed version of the doppler ultrasound as it identifies the direction of the flow of blood.
    • They are used to form images of various organs such as spleen, kidneys, pancreas, bile, ducts, liver, veins, and arteries.
