Radiology & Imaging
Consolata Hospital Mathari runs a radiology/imaging department known as Our Lady of Perpetual Help Diagnostic Centre. This department houses some of the most advanced imaging equipment, such as a 1.5 Tesla MRI and a 16-slice CT scan. It also has a digital X-ray and an ultramodern ultrasound with echocardiography. With our CT scan and ultrasound machine, we can perform biopsy-guided procedures on the liver, lungs, lymph nodes, breast, thyroid, and prostate among others. While we strive to make our radiology services cost-effective, we have partnered with key corporate insurance companies such as NHIF, Britam, CIC, Madison, APA, Pacis, Jubilee, AAR, EduAfya among others. The department is also installing mammogram and radiotherapy machines. Our key radiology procedures include:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – MRI is a type of radiology machine that uses radio waves and strong magnetic fields to generate detailed images inside human body organs. Most doctors use the technique to diagnose problems associated with soft tissues, particularly nerves, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The technique can be utilized to scan the whole body but is widely applied to scanning the brain, bones, spine, joints, and other organs of the human body.
Computerized Tomography (CT-SCAN) – Our 16-slice CT scanner produces quality images allowing doctors to see the internal structure of the human body, helping in the evaluation of various medical conditions. One of the advantages of our CT scanner is its ability to produce images of blood vessels through angiography technology.
Ultramodern Ultrasound with Echocardiography – One of the radiation-free diagnostic machines is the ultrasound machine. This can perform various examinations such as the abdomen, pelvis, obstetric, neck, and cranial ultrasound. This imaging technique is ideal for pregnant mothers who may need routine examinations such as abdominal and pelvic ultrasound. A major use of our ultrasound machine is in echocardiography, which allows the doctor to “Read your heart” through ultrasound of the heart (ECHO).
Digital X-ray – This is one of the most basic radiology techniques used to generate images of human organs and structures. Doctors recommend the technique to detect or diagnose bone fractures, breaks or lung complications. Interestingly, our X-ray machine can perform specialized examinations such as Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) and micturating cystourethrogram (MCU).
