Radiology Equipments

MRI SCAN

MRI TOSHIBA ELECART VANTAGE 1.5TESLA MRI Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) employ the use of radio frequency/ magnetic field to produce images of all parts of the body and is used to find problems such as tumors, mass, blood vessel diseases.
Our Bayelsa MRI Features include:

Lighting and ventilation throughout the bore to aid claustrophobic patient/guest to be comfortable.| The largest available clinical FOV at 55 x 55 x 50cm.| Equipped with Pianissimo technology to eliminate up to 90% of acoustic noise.| Clinical Applications | Diffusion and Perfusion Imaging.| Fresh blood Angiography (MRA)| MR Spectroscop | Peripheral Angiography | Whole Spine Screening

CT SCAN

CT Scan TOSHIBA AQUILLION PRIME 160 SLICE A CT scan acquires images of the body in axial plane and reconstructs it into sagittal and coronal planes, CT scans of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels processed at BDC offers superior clarity and are of high diagnostic value. Our Aquillion prime 160 slice CT scan: features include:
Ultra low radiation dose – AIDR 3D, Ultra-fast work flow, One family application, Dynamic contrast injection.

With our Aquillion Prime we carry out specialize examination, which include:Cardiac CT, Cerebral ANGIO, Carotid ANGIO, Pulmonary embolism, Abdominal ANGIO, Peripheral ANGIO, CT COLONOGRAPHY etc

X-Ray

CARESTREAM QUANTUM HF SERIES Our Quantum series which has an automatic exposure control (AEC) to produce as low as reasonably achievable quality Xray that will aid diagnosis. Accompanied with our Classic CR system that support the processing of an X-ray image in 90Sec.

Mammography

Mammography is specialized medical imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to see inside the breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Our METATRONICA can help detect lesion and mass in the breast. METATRONICA LYLIUM MAMMOGRAM – its ergonomic can help carter for incapacitated patient/guest

Ultrasound/ Color Doppler

TOSHIBA APLIO 300 3D/4D Our Ultrasound unit is an APLIO 300 Ultrasound system by Toshiba which provides high end 3D/4D imaging capability. The APLIO 300 is a highly mobile and easy to use high performance multipurpose imaging system with features that can support: Abdominal, OB/GYN, Neonatal, Cardiology, Small Parts, Vascular, Paediatrics, Urology etc. scans.

Enables Radiologist /Sonographers to make decisions earlier, intervene with confidence and improve monitoring of the at-risk fetus, it also allows clinicians to visualize small changes earlier in the disease process, enabling earlier intervention and therapy.
