X-ray, Imaging, and CT-Scan Center


Welcome to Phuket Provincial Hospitals X-ray, Imaging Center


  


       Our diagnostic radiology services with advanced equipment and technology is used accurately and efficiently and as a result, the patient is diagnosed promptly. Our Top of the line CT scan is a high speed 64 slice CT machine developed with modern technology. It can create up to 64 images in a single cycle. The image results are high precision photos of any organ, especially the heart. The CT scan catches the movements of the organs with such a clear picture in both 2D and 3D, that the doctor can give an accurate prognosis, treatment plan, and treatment quickly.


       Computerized tomography is a diagnostic test that uses a x-ray technology and computer generated images to create cross-sectional images (usually called slices) to show detail images of bones, muscles, blood vessels and internal organs the scan is many used for patients whom have had car accidents or other types of trauma related conditions. Because a CT scan produces images instantly it is also used to examine chest and abdomen problems, detection and diagnostic of vascular diseases that can lead to strokes, kidney failure and death. It is very good in the early detection of cancers throughout the body.


       Diagnostic imaging is an increasingly important tool in your medical treatment. Our highly trained radiologic technologists will assist you with CT scans, X-rays, ultrasounds 4D, and bone densitometry analysis to insure you’re on the road to a healthy recovery.


       We have a qualified radiology team to help and monitor you throughout your CT scan and follow-up treatments. Our equipment is of high technology with that of other private hospitals in the region.

4D ULTASOUND

What is Ultrasound?
       Ultrasound is a type of sound wave which has a frequency higher than 20,000 Hz. At present the ultrasound wave is used to develop medical equipment to detect various diseases including the fetus’s health in the womb.


       Seeing your unborn child for the first time is a very special experience. 4D Ultrasound (image left), which is a type of sound wave which uses high frequency to produce a picture of the organs in the body. A 4D ultrasound uses a special sonogram machine that creates a moving, life-like picture by taking rapid digital images. A standard ultrasound only provides a 2D image of the Fetus, but the 4D ultrasound creates a 3D image in REAL TIME, rather than a delayed image in normal 3D ultrasounds. With this 4D ultrasound, you will be able to get a realistic image of the baby, such as facial features, movements during procedure and it helps detect any abnormalities.
