General Information

Radiology is a service unit specialized for diagnostic imaging techniques and image-guided treatment and meeting the needs of patients and the department. Our hospital consists of 6 towers and a main mass connected to all the towers. Each tower has a located Radiology Unit. MRI, Tomography, Xray, USG, Color Doppler, Bone Densimetry procedures are carried in all of our Radiology Units. Interventional Radiology Unit performs diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. We provide service now as Cardiovascular Radiology, General Radiology, Neuro-Orthopedics Radiology, Oncology Radiology and Obstetrics And Gynecology Radiology.

Our Unit Consists Of 10 Sections: 

1-Abdominal Radiology 
2-Thoracic Radiology 
3-Head-Neck Radiology 
4-Neuroradiology 
5-Cardiopulmonary System Radiology 
6-Musculoskeletal Radiology 
7-Breast Radiology 
8-Obstetrics And Gynecology Radiology 
9-Pediatric Radiology 
10-Interventional Radiology 
a. Vascular Interventional Radiology 
b. Nonvascular Interventional Radiology 
c. Neuroradiological Interventional Radiology

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR - MRI) 

Before entering MR Room, you are asked to leave all metals in your body (belt, hair clip, jewelry, coin, key etc.) outside. The magnetic field damages magnetic objects such as credit cards, CD, tape, rendering those unusable. Patients with pacemaker, patienta using ear implant, patients having aneurysm clipping surgery are not accepted for MRI and expectant mothers in their first three months are not also accepted for MRI relying on the possibility that it may cause functional disruption despite there is not any damage as known. During breast feeding period, there is no obstruction, but if contrast material (dye) is applied to enhance visibility during MR Scan, mothers shouldn't breastfeed their babies 24-48 hours after elimination of the material through the body. There is no preparation for MR. Patients can eat their food and take their medicine unless otherwise instructed as warning. Patients are asked to fill a form for their medical history. In addition, patients must remove all belongings being affected by the magnetic field such as watch, credit card, metal objects etc. before entering into MR Room. In our Radiology Unit, our Radiology Unit has 5 MR Devices in total; 1 1,5T, 4 3T The Unit has 3 mammography machines. It is the most frequently used machine for the diagnosis of bone and lung diseases. Images are captured by x-rays. Directed graphs are conducted digitally in the main unit of our hospital. All kinds of routine direct graphs and specific directed examination (Scoliosis and panoramic graphy) are conducted. We also provide portable radiography service for our hospitalized patients. 

Color Doppler Ultrasonography used in areas:

Carotid diseases
Leg vein diseases
Arm vein diseases
Deep vein thrombosis 
Varicosity and venous insufficiency
Aneurysms

Ultrasonography

It is an imaging method to visualize soft tissues. High-frequency sound waves are applied to tissue. Images are captured via these sound waves echoed from tissue. Patient doesn't feel uncomfortable during USG examination and there is no dangerous radiation in this method.

Ultrasonography used in areas: Intra-abdominal organs such as liver, spleen, kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, uterus and ovaries.

Breast
Pregnancy
Thyroid Gland
Joints
Hip Dysplasia in babies
Superficial tissues (skin, subcutaneous tissues and muscles)

Bone Densitometry: It is measurement of bone density. In other words, it is a method determines the fracture risk of a bone.Bone thinning disease is called osteoporosis. Osteoporosis disease cannot be treated completely, but it can be stopped in situ with the help of early diagnonsis, convenient medication and improvement of living conditions.

DSA: It is a technique to visualize vessels by XRays via a computer program.

In our Unit, various diagnostic and medical procedures are carried out (Interventional Radiology) In Radiology Unit, we have DSA (Digital Angiography) equipment used for interventional purposes as 2 neuroradiological, 2 peripheral vascular and nonvascular.
