It is a state of the art ultrasound equipment that allows a fast and non-invasive evaluation of the different soft tissues of the body, without the risk of radiation and in a safe way. It is the imaging modality of choice in obstetrics, pediatric patients and in patients with contraindications for magnetic resonance and contrast medium administration.
We have digital X-Ray equipment with high image quality and low radiation doses.
In the FCV we have two fixed conventional radiology units in the Emergency and Trauma and Diagnostic Support Units; and two portable units for the Intensive Care Units and Surgical Rooms.
Our X-Ray Telecomanded equipment allows us to perform studies with contrast medium to evaluate the digestive tract, the urinary system, female reproductive system, guide interventional procedures, among others.
Our Computerized Tomography equipment has 128 detectors that allow rapid studies and excellent image quality, as well as special techniques to reduce the dose of radiation absorbed in susceptible tissues such as the thyroid and retina.
It is capable of performing studies on obese patients (227 kg) and, in addition, it allows studies to be performed on patients with prominent abdominal perimeters.
It is the initial study of choice for diseases of the central nervous system, trauma, cancer, pulmonary, abdominal pathology and cardiovascular diseases. It accurately defines bone structures and also enables 3D studies and virtual navigation, such as bronchoscopy and virtual colonoscopy. It also has the ability to perform simple and contrast media studies, and functions as a guide for interventional procedures.
