Radiology is a medical specialty that employs the use of imaging to both diagnose and visualise disease within the human body. Accuracy in diagnostics being so critical to the doctor's diagnosis and treatment, at Chisty Shifa Clinic we provide the very good quality imaging, radiology and pathology facilities.

The Department of Imaging and Radiology is equipped with latest diagnostic systems such as:

• CT Scan (Brain, Thorax and Abdomen)
• Bone Densitometer
• Dental X-Ray
• Echography (Ultrasound)
• Fully Digital Mammography
• Fully Digital X-Ray
• Interventional Radiology


A radiology procedure called an X-ray study, commonly known as a radiograph, takes images of bones and joints. To create these images, X-rays use low-level radiation. Your doctor can make a diagnosis and create treatment programs with the aid of the images.
People of all ages, including babies, can get an X-ray. However, If there’s a chance you might be pregnant, tell your provider before getting an X-ray. Radiation from an X-ray can harm your foetus.
Your provider may order an X-ray to:
  • Check for fractures (Broken bones)
  • Identify the cause of symptoms, such as pain and swelling.
  • Look for foreign objects in your body.
  • Look for structural problems in your bones, joints, or soft tissues.
  • Plan and evaluate treatments.


An ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to create a picture (also known as a sonogram) of organs, tissues, and other structures inside the body. Unlike x-rays, ultrasounds don’t use any radiation. An ultrasound can also show parts of the body in motion, such as a heart beating or blood flowing through blood vessels.

There are two main categories of ultrasounds: pregnancy ultrasound and diagnostic ultrasound:

Pregnancy ultrasound is used to look at an unborn baby. The test can provide information about a baby’s growth, development, and overall health.

Diagnostic ultrasound is used to view and provide information about other internal parts of the body. These include the heart, blood vessels, liver, bladder, kidneys, and female reproductive organs.


CT Scan

Medical experts use computed tomography, also referred to as a CT scan, as a technique to examine inside body structures. A CT scan creates images of a cross-section of your body using the latest technology. 

In order for medical professionals to see your body in great detail, it takes photographs that reveal very tiny "slices" of your bones, muscles, organs, and blood arteries. A CT scan will be recommended by your doctor in order to help in the diagnosis of your condition.
Among the things a CT scan can detect are:
  • Certain types of cancer and benign (noncancerous) tumours.
  • Fractures (broken bones)
  • Heart disease
  • Internal bleeding
  • Bowel anomalies
  • Abdominal organs lacerations
  • Brain and spinal cord diseases or injuries.
