Frequently asked questions

Radiology, often known as diagnostic imaging, is a group of tests that take photographs or images of the body's various components. Many of these tests are one-of-a-kind in that they allow doctors to look into the human body. This image may be obtained using a variety of imaging examinations, including X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT scan, and PET scan.

X-rays, ultrasound, bone mineral densitometry, fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine, CT, and MRI are among the diagnostic procedures that radiologists evaluate.

No. Unlike ultrasound, radiology diagnostic tests make use of radiation to capture the image of the body’s inside. MRI and CT scans are two of the prominent radiology tests. On the other hand, ultrasound falls in the category of sonography, wherein ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves are used to create images.

The following tests fall in the category of radiology:

  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Computed axial tomography9 (CAT) scan
  • CT angiography
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Magnetic resonance angiography
  • Mammography
  • Nuclear medicine (bone scan, thallium cardiac stress test, and thyroid scan)
  • X-rays
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Ultrasound

At Healthians Scans, we employ state-of-the-art image diagnostic equipment that features cutting-edge diagnostic features and capabilities. To ensure unmatched accuracy and performance, we source our equipment from one of the leading manufacturers of image testing scanners, Siemens.

Yes, you can. Being a non-invasive and safe radiology diagnostic test, there is no mandated limit on the number of tests that can be performed on patients. The frequency and quantity of the test depend upon the illness and the need for the tests.

An MRI may be able to detect structural abnormalities pushing against the nerve, allowing the issue to be resolved before irreversible nerve damage develops. A neurological examination can generally detect nerve injury, and MRI scan data can be used to confirm the diagnosis.

X-rays, which emit ionizing radiation, are used in CT scans. According to studies, this type of radiation can have some effect on your DNA. However, the danger is negligible:

There is no risk of radiation exposure during an MRI treatment because radiation is not employed. However, owing to the powerful magnet used, MRI cannot be done on individuals who have pacemakers implanted.

The liquid injected before an imaging test, such as an MRI or a CT scan is called Contrast. It helps to identify or see a structure or abnormality. To achieve maximum visibility, oral contrast may need to be given after a 45-minute wait period to allow the contrast to transit the length of the intestine. This chemical is administered to highlight (in high-resolution images) specific body areas and is gone in a day or two. It's generally taken orally or through injection. As the dye passes through the patient's body, he or she may experience a warm sensation.

Generally, all radiological tests offered by Healthian Scans i.e CT scan, MRI scan, X-ray, and ultrasound, take about 30 minutes to complete. However, ultrasound, depending on the condition the test is being performed, may take up to 60 minutes or 1 hour.

There are several precautions that a patient needs to observe before a CT scan, regardless of the type of scan. These include:

  • Avoid wearing clothing with metal inserts, such as zippers, clasps, underwire bras, and even jewelry
  • Fasting of up to 3 hours is required before undergoing a CT scan (for oral contrast CT)

For diabetic patients, the following precautions should be kept in mind:

  • For IV contrast, the patient should discuss diabetes medications with the doctor.
  • Blood urea nitrogen to creatinine ratio (BUN/creatinine) should remain normal at least 4 weeks before the CT scan.

Although not harmful to the human anatomy, yet the magnetic properties of the machine mandate certain precautions that must be observed before undergoing an MRI scan. These include:

  • Patients with implanted pacemakers and cardiovascular defibrillators can’t undertake an MRI scan.
  • Wallets, purses, belts, money clips, credit cards, jewelry, and any other metallic object should be removed before the scan.
  • Hair clips, hairpins, and even hair ointments should be removed before the scan
  • Hearing aids should be removed before the scan

We accept all major credit and debit cards, along with digital payment platforms (Paytm, PhonePe, Google Pay, MobiKwik, Pine Labs etc.), and UPI payments. As per Covid-19 precautions, we discourage cash payments. You do not need to make an advance payment for any of the radiological tests.

The medical insurance coverage is purely dependent on the Terms & Conditions of your insurance providers. Therefore, we recommend you get in touch with your insurance provider to get the details of the extent of coverage and whether image testing is covered under your plan or not.
