Services
  • General radiology and fluoroscopy

  • Ultrasonography: ultrasound machines with 2D and 3D capability along with color and duplex Doppler imaging. We also dedicate a separate room for ultrasound-guided procedures and 2 portable units for bedside examinations

  • Computed Tomography:  providing the full range of studies from neuro and body imaging to coronary CT angiography, CT enterography and virtual colonoscopy. 

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): providing the full range of studies from neuro and body imaging to MR spectroscopy, breast and genitourinary imaging, cardiac imaging and MR enterography.

  • Interventional Radiology (IR): provides a wide range of minimally-invasive radiological procedures, including vascular and non-vascular interventions using a fully equipped IR suite with state-of-the-art digital subtraction imaging, 3D roadmapping, CT like images, vessel navigation and CO2 view tracing.

  • The Mamdouha El Sayed Bobst Breast Unit (MSBBU): Digital mammography with tomosynthesis, Breast ultrasound, Interventional procedures such as biopsies and wire localization.

  • Nuclear Medicine, PET/CT and cyclotron unit:

    1. ​​​Nuclear Medicine, as well as advanced studies which encompass cardiac stress/rest scanning, sentinel node localization, leukoscans and neurological studies for epilepsy. We also provide radionuclide treatments for prostate cancer and neuroendocrine tumors using Lu-177 radiopharmaceuticals as well as conventional radioiodine treatments for thyroid diseases.

    2. IPET/CT is used to pinpoint the location of cancer within the body before making treatment recommendations and for assessment of treatment response, memory disorders, seizures and other central nervous system disorders.

    3. Cyclotron produce a variety of isotopes on a local and regional scale. The cyclotron is a dual-ion-source/dual-target unit with energy of 18 MeV capable of producing various radioisotopes such as F-18, O-15, N-13 and C-11.​
