CT SCAN – Grace General Hospital provides services such as CT scan that helps diagnosing diseases, planning of treatment or figuring out if the treatments are working. The CT scan, also known as CAT scan (Computerized Axial Tomography), produces precise cross sectional images of internal organs. Compared to the conventional X-ray, it provides more detailed information about the body in the form of medical imaging by exposing the patients to ionizing radiation. Radiation physicists and trained technical staff will monitor the procedures to ensure the safe and right use of the machines.

MRI – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. At Grace General Hospital MRI machine has an extraordinary wider opening, which is less intimidating for children and those who have claustrophobia.

No preparation needed for patients before an MRI scan. On arrival at the hospital, our doctors may ask the patient to change into a gown. No metal objects are allowed in the scanner, so the patient will be asked to remove any metal accessories that may interfere with the machine.

At times, patients will be injected with intravenous (IV) contrast liquid to improve the appearance of a certain body tissue.

Once the patient has entered the scanning room, they will be assisted by our skillful staff onto the scanner until the end of the procedure. Our staff will ensure that they are as comfortable as possible by providing blankets or cushions.
