Diagnostic imaging plays a critical role in the early and accurate diagnosis of various conditions in the field of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Radiology – Radiology Department is also well equipped. X-ray radiography remains the foundation of diagnostic imaging in the field of Orthopaedics. The age old problems of poor quality images, slow processing of films, storage space consumption and deterioration of films with time have been resolved with the introduction of digital radiography. Digital radiography, which is available in Dr. Loganathan Orthopaedic Hospital, allows the acquisition of high resolution images that can be stored and viewed on a computer on and off-site. Our Hospital has high quality, state-of-the-art digital radiography machines – with a highest standard processing machine which allows for high-speed and high resolution images. In addition, the hospital also possesses a portable radiography machine to provide imaging services for the in-patients especially in the critical care areas.
