Crestview's picture

Crestview Radiology has recently opened an ultramodern radiology and imaging facility equipped with the state of the art imaging modalities at National Orthopaedic Hospital Igbobi.

The centre is managed by a team of dedicated radiologists and imaging experts headed by a highly qualified and experienced senior consultant radiologist. The department uses the RIS and PACS (Radiology Information System and Picture Archiving Communication System). As soon as your investigation is over, the images reach the radiologist’s computer for viewing and interpretation; thus avoiding any loss of time in the management of patients.

Our latest MRI machine which is 1.5 Tesla provides accurate investigation of brain, spine and joints. In addition it is capable of carrying out studies of the liver, biliary tree (MRCPs) and pelvic organs. One of the recent developments is its capability of imaging breasts (with special breast coil) in difficult to diagnose cases. Other procedures are MR angiogram which scans the arteries and veins of the brain, body, extremities and abdomen.

The multi-slice CT, the multi-formatted and 3D images have increased our diagnostic capability. With this new device, studies can be finished in seconds, saving patient’s time. CT-guided biopsies and drainage procedures are also done routinely. Our machine is supported by a modern pressure injector for contrast medium injection. The 3D images are of great help in the evaluation of fractures, tumours and aneurysms. CT angiogram is of value in pulmonary embolism, abdominal arteries and extremities, neck and brain vessels. CT-guided drainage procedures prevent surgeries. CT assisted virtual colonoscopy is an important tool that can be applied to very sick patients who are not fit for colonoscopy.

Apart from the specialized imaging facilities the department includes :
- Gastrointestinal and urological fluroscopic procedures
- Digital radiography
- Breast biopsy
- Ultrasound with color Doppler and ultrasound guided procedures
- Mobile x-ray machine
- Mobile ultrasound machine
