Considering the fact that efficient treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis, Radiology Departments, undoubtedly, undertake a critical role in all hospitals. Efficient treatments can be performed that are tolerated more easily by patients, as the imaging modalities facilitate diagnostic services and enable access to diseased body parts including organs without the requirement of major surgery and the resulting adverse effects on the body. This vital field is called Interventional Radiology.

When doctors who specialize in certain diseases are combined with specialized clinicians, a cohesive functional team is formed that knows and trusts each other, talks the same medical language and benefits from experiences and back and forth invaluable feedback; when combined with an imaging infrastructure that has all the extensive content, flexibility and convenience of the very best contemporary technology we are in an extremely strong position as a department to provide our patients with efficient and safe contemporary healthcare. This system is called “Service Line” and it ensures that patients are served by members of the team with optimal specialization at all stages of the treatment process minimizing contingencies and complications.

Numerous complex minimally invasive treatments, such as endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms, radioembolization to treat liver cancer, treatment of cerebral aneurysm, and prostatic artery embolization are successfully performed along with any and all biopsy and drainage procedures in the field of Interventional Radiology.

Our department strictly adheres to the universal rules of ethics; scientific data and resulting logic are the dominant factors during all our surgical procedures. All our team members treat patients with respect and empathy always remembering that patients invariably exist with a challenging set of circumstances and expect help from trained specialists with an appropriate level of experience and skill; irrespective of the roles within the team, each member contributes to the overall solution.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Since diagnosis, treatment, and follow-ups of all diseases that develop in the human body are closely linked to the services of the radiology department, almost all patients are referred to us. Radiologists at the MedAmerican Ambulatory Care Center are specialized according to various imaging modalities, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computerized Tomography (CT), Ultrasound (US), Mammography and Conventional X-ray, but they are also classified by their knowledge and experience of certain diseases. Playing a critical role in the quality of medical imaging, our technicians are also specializing in certain imaging techniques, as is the case with our radiologists. Accordingly, imaging techniques are efficiently and safely used, while accurate approaches are adopted for patients with specific problems. The department is specialized in diseases of the brain and central nervous system, musculoskeletal system, breast, prostate gland and urinary system, liver, bile ducts and pancreas as well as lungs, cardiovascular system, thyroid gland, and other endocrine organs.

Our sub-services are listed below:

  • Diagnostic Imaging: Conventional Radiography, Ultrasound, Computerized Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Mammography, Angiography
  • Interventional Radiology: For vascular pathologies, organ pathologies, vascular pathologies of the nervous system and oncologic interventional radiology
