Today, with services such as SMS alerts, online test booking, tracking and report access, we continue to lead the way in leveraging technology for better services.

Pathology is the study of the causes and effects of disease or injury. The word pathology also refers to the study of disease in general, incorporating a wide range of biology research fields and medical practices.

Medical ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs.

You are required to lie down on a table next to the display monitor and the doctor conducts the test by applying gel on the target organ area and placing the USG probe over it. In cases of TVS, the probe in inserted internally. Patient might be required to fast orĀ drink 2-3 glasses of water for a set of hours before the USG is conducted, as directed by the physician.

An X-ray report is a photographic or digital image of the internal composition of something, especially a part of the body, produced by X-rays being passed through it and being absorbed to different degrees by different materials.

During X-ray examination, you are required to change into light cloths and remove all jewelry. The technician guides you in taking the right position in front of the X-ray receiving plate. Depending upon the target body part, you may be asked to lie down or stand to facilitate the X-ray report.

A Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. A regular ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images, but can’t show blood flow.

Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test which detects the problems with the electrical activity of the heart.

Patients must bring all previous diagnostic or operative reports and films. If you are undergoing any medication that should be told to doctor as it can change the test result. Fasting is not needed. You need to remove all the jewelries.

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). Motor neurons transmit electrical signals that cause muscles to contract. An EMG translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that a specialist interprets.

An echocardiogram is an ultrasound (USG) test that can evaluate the structures of your heart, as well as the direction of blood flow within it. The process is non-internal and hasslefree.

The patient is asked to remove all heavy jewelries and clothing and lie down on the provided table. The doctor/technician applies the ultrasound gel on the area above the heart and the external probe is applied over the gel rich area. The patient is required to be still as the echo cardiogram is in process. The examination lasts not more than fifteen to twenty minutes.

Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) measures your lung volume, capacity, rates of air flow and gas exchange. The test is done by spirometer which measures the amount of air you breathe in and out. It helps to detect breathing problems such as asthma and any other lung diseases. If you are on medication, it also can tell how well your medication is working.

The Use of broncho-dilator /inhaler /smoking/cough syrup must be stopped 6 hours before the test.

During the test, you are asked to walk on a treadmill and your heart rhythm, blood pressure and breathing are monitored. It helps to detect coronary artery disease or irregular heart rhythm.

You are requested to have light food at least 4 hours prior to the test. If you are undergoing any medication that should be told to doctor as it can change the result of the test. Your relative should accompany you. Doctor’s prescription and ECG report are mandatory. You must bring all previous diagnostic or operative reports & film.

Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) study, another part of an EMG, uses electrodes taped to the skin (surface electrodes) to measure the speed and strength of signals traveling between two or more points.

An NCV uses tiny devices called electrodes to transmit or detect electrical signals. During EMG, a needle electrode inserted directly into a muscle to record the electrical activity in that muscle. NCV results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
