Department of Imaging at P.D.Hinduja Hospital offers latest and most sophisticated technology and procedure for most accurate diagnosis of diseases, their stage and impact of treatment on patients. The department has internationally acclaimed and seasoned radiologists who with the team of technicians make it the best hospital based diagnostic center.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is an imaging technique used in radiology to create pictures of the anatomy of the body. MRI combines computer technology with magnetism and radio waves to create multiple real time pictures of inside your body. It is safe, painless and comfortable procedure that emits no radiation.
MRI Suites at Hinduja Hospital: The MRI Suites at Hinduja Hospital are the first ever digital broadband MRI machine. The MRI Suites are the best and most preferred by both, the patients and the doctors.

- Coronary CT Angiography in 15 mins.
- Whole body CT in few minutes with sub-millimeter resolution.
- All the 3 critical causes of acute chest pain, namely Coronary Artery Disease, Pulmonary Embolism and Aortic dissection, can be ruled out in a single non-invasive procedure.
- Rapid examination of blood vessels in the brain including perfusion studies enabling doctors to make a quick diagnosis of stroke and extent of damage.
- High-resolution fast imaging of any body region with exquisite multiplanar reconstructions.
- Excellent 3-D reconstruction of bones and other structures showing detailed anatomy, free of artefacts.
- Option of 3-D virtual scopy in various parts such as virtual colonoscopy, bronchoscopy & laryngoscopy.
Any woman having symptoms of breast disease i.e. lump, pain, and discharge from the nipple, nipple retraction or skin texture changes should undergo a mammogram in consultation with her doctor. Mammography can help to decide whether a lump is malignant and can be a guide for biopsy.
The goal of screening mammography is to detect breast cancer when it is too small to be felt by the physician. It can pick up lumps of even 3-5 mm. For women in the age group 20-40 years monthly breast self-examination and examination by a physician (PE) every 3 years is a must. For those between 40-49 years women should have mammograms every 1-2 years combined with monthly breast self-exam and yearly physical examination. From the age of 50 years women should have yearly mammograms combined with monthly breast self-exam and yearly physical examination.
At P. D. Hinduja Hospital has a dedicated state of the art technology GE-DMR stereotix machine with stereotactic biopsy attachment. Low dose of radiation, high resolution with superior image quality, AEC (automatic exposure control) and optimized.

Reports can be collected from OPD report collection counter on the next working day after 6 pm.
Colour Doppler (Epiq 7G) is an ultrasound test in which colours are superimposed on an image of a blood vessel to indicate the speed and direction of blood flow in the vessel. Colour Doppler is a useful and non-invasive screening tool. This state-of-the-art equipment armed with multiple probes can do carotid, peripheral vascular, renal, small parts and gynecological Doppler studies. A colour Doppler test is one of the main ways to test for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) -- a condition where blood clots form in veins deep in your body.
The colour doppler test can be used to check blood flow in veins, arteries, and heart, to look for narrowed or blocked arteries, to see how blood flows after treatment, to look for bulging in an artery which is called an aneurysm and when it’s done on your belly, it can help find: blood flow problems with your liver, kidneys, pancreas, or spleen and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Bone Mineral Densitometry and DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) are essentially the same. A bone density test is used to measure bone mineral content and density. It helps to detect osteoporosis at an early stage, monitor the treatment of osteoporosis, and assess the fat content of the body. Essentially, BMD is done for the Lumbar Spine and Hips, as these are the common bones that fracture due to osteoporosis.
