Institute of Radiology (Imaging)

Institute of Radiology (Imaging)

The Institute of Radiology of the Herzliya Medical Center hospital there is a combination of the newest computerized imaging systems in the world, top radiologists and certified x-ray technicians, guaranteeing accurate and quick diagnostic information.

The institute has the most advanced digital systems in the world, including CT, ultrasound, x-ray – general x-ray, computerized tomography, vascular Doppler and invasive radiology. All diagnostic information is stored in a computerized archive for efficient management of the information and remote consultation.

General x-ray

Digital imaging and screening in low radiation doses allow a variety of tests for all body parts, such as:

  • UGI, esophagus, stomach, duodenum + small intestine.
  • Barium enema.
  • Cystoscopy (intravenous pyelography, IVP).
  • Cystography and retrograde orthography.
  • Treatment of the rings seen after stomach bypass surgeries.
  • uterus imaging.
  • Palm imaging for growth assessment (bone age).
  • Imaging of all parts of the skeleton.
  • Screening in the operation room using a new C-ARM device and a mobile CT device O-ARM.
  • A screening device Mini C-ARM for small organs in low radiation in the operation room.
  • x-rays using a mobile device that comes to the subject’s bed.

The tests in the Institute of Radiology are performed by experienced certified technicians and are interpreted by expert radiologists. The images can be received via magnetic media (CD). The images are retained in a digital archive (PACS) with an option to get a copy of the images in the future.

Types of ultrasound tests

  • The urethra, lymph system, abdomen, bile ducts, and gynecology.
  • A special transducer for small parts such as prostate, eidos gland, testicles, breasts, and subcutaneous tumors.
  • amniotic fluid test.
  • Chorionic villus.
  • Vascular Doppler: cervical arteries Doppler, peripheral blood vessels Doppler, central veins Doppler, aneurysm diagnosis.
  • Ultrasound guided biopsies.
  • FNA – cytology sample suction with a fine needle under ultrasound imaging: breast, eidos gland, lymph node, liver, and others.
    The tests are retained in a digital archive (PACS) with an option of comparing future tests and printing test copies as per the subject’s request.

Computerized tomography (CT).

A test that allows creating a 3D image of the inside of the body. This imaging test is intended to diagnose various diseases in all parts of the body or to plan and perform certain invasive treatments and surgeries. The PHILIPS computerized scanner at the hospital performs a comprehensive, reliable and accurate diagnostic scan of all body parts: heart and coronary arteries, blood vessels, spine, joints, bones, head, brain, abdomen, intestine, liver, spleen, and urinary system. An image processing software was installed in the device and it allows decreasing and adjusting the radiation to the subject’s body.
The tests are performed by experienced certified technicians and are interpreted by expert radiologists.

Types of Computerized tomography tests

  • CARDIAC CT virtual catheterization – heart scan without catheterization via the newest Computerized tomography system in the world.
  • Virtual colonoscopy for diagnosis of lesions in the large intestine.
  • Angiography CT for blood vessel imaging – in the neck, skull, lower limbs, kidneys, urinary tract, and abdomen arteries.
  • Tests directed at the bones of the hands, ankles, shoulders, pelvis joints, to assess the structure of fractures and their healing. Creating 3D and reconstruction in other dimensions using a computerized work station.
  • Measuring the length of the lower limbs.
  • Treatment of malignant lesions using radio waves guided by R.F-C.t Ablation.
  • Percutaneous biopsies that require precise monitoring via computerized tomography in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, bones.
  • Draining deep puss.
  • LOT DOSE CHEST C.T for heavy smokers for early diagnosis of lung cancer.
  • CT for the urinary tract – for diagnosis of stones.
  • Urography C.T. for demonstrating the urinary system.
  • Enterography C.T. for demonstrating the small intestine throughout.

Invasive radiology

an action performed in the catheterization room, equipped with a new x-ray device in low radiation. The device has processing and imaging while moving capabilities to create axial cuts as there are in C.T – as well as 3D processing capability.

Type of Invasive radiology tests

Diagnostic angiography for limbs and arteries

Therapeutic angiography:

  • Blood vessel catheterization diagnostic and therapeutic – dilatation of blood vessels in the limbs and other areas, via balloon, stent and/or graft stent.
  • Inserting central catheters to deep veins – for dialysis and chemotherapy.
  • PORTACATH implantation.
  • Treatment of fistula complications or dialysis shunts.
  • T.C draining occluded bile duct.
  • Treatment of occluded kidneys (Nephrostomy).
  • Biopsies of: soft tissues, lungs, abdomen organs, bones, FNA or TRUCUT via a needle.
  • Removing tumors from bones (Osteoma).
  • Treatments of tumors in the liver (Radiofrequency Thermo Ablation).
  • Blood vessel occlusion to tumors (embolism) or aneurysms.
  • Dilated veins occlusion.
  • Fixation of fractures in the spine that require x-ray guidance.
  • Marking lesions for their removal via C.T. in new technology.
  • Blood vessels occlusion to tumors in the prostate – prostate catheterization.

All treatments are performed by top expert doctors in the field of invasive radiology with designated equipment for every test.
