What are Imaging Tests?


Imaging refers to the process of generating visual illustration of the internal organs or tissues of our body that are hidden inside the skin and bones for clinical diagnosis and medical intervention, as well as to diagnose diseases. Our Imaging center consists of trained specialists and the equipment needed for performing the tests.

The main purpose of medical imaging is to examine the patient’s current health condition, identify the causes of the disease, and investigate the existing symptoms or to pin down a diagnosis.

Clinic one uses several kinds of imaging equipment depending upon the patient’s needs. The following are the core imaging services provided by Clinic One.


X-Ray

X-ray is the oldest and most commonly used form of digital medical imaging which is performed by passing a certain amount of radiation through the human body to form images. It is mostly used to examine the skeletal system and to detect diseases at its primary stage, thus improving the chances of fast recovery.

At Clinic One, no appointments are necessary for X-ray. We advise you to have a written prescription from a physician or a specialist. X-ray services are available every day from 7:00 AM  to 7:00 PM on weekdays & 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Saturday. The X-ray film is generated within five minutes and the reporting is done by a radiologist.

Note:  Clinic One has been operating X-ray services after approval from the Department of Health Services / District Public Health Office. We have also been approved by NAST (Nepal Academy of Science and Technology) which is the authorized body that is responsible for checking the quality of infrastructure, risk assessment, and preventing unnecessary hazards. Therefore, Clinic One has been operating X-ray services in a secured Radiation Shielded room.

Although the government’s requirement is of 0.75 mm thick lead shield in X-ray rooms, our clinic has a 1.55 mm thick lead shield that protects more from radiation.


X-Ray machine Details

We use 600 MA Siemens X-ray machine (German) having a higher frequency. We have digital radiography to provide a clear and prompt X-ray film.


ECG

ECG stands for electrocardiography performed to measure the electrical activity and the rhythm of the human heart to determine whether it is working normally or not. It is performed on those patients who have symptoms of heart diseases such as palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, and also for a routine investigation.


ECG Machine Details

Clinic one uses 12 lead ECG machine.


ECG Timing

Every day from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM & Saturday 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM


ECHO

Echo or echocardiography is a test performed to check for the problems in your heart by using high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the heart. Some of the problems that can be detected through Echocardiogram are clogged arteries, problems in the chambers and the valves and other congenital heart diseases.


Who does the ECHO?

The MD-Cardiologist doctor does the ECHO. Clinic One arranges the session with the Cardiologist after an appointment. The ECHO is done under his/her leadership.


Do I need a Prescription?

It’s up to the patient. You do not necessarily require a prescription to perform an ECHO but if your doctor has mentioned it, please bring your prescription with you. Otherwise, if you have doubts or issues related to ECHO, you can drop by, call/email us to make an appointment.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is performed using high-frequency sound waves to generate live images of the internal organs and the structure of the human body. It is a safer technique than an X-ray and CT scan as it doesn’t use any radiations for the test. Doctors and professionals use the ultrasound to measure the blood flow in the arteries to detect blockages and check for problems in internal organs such as liver, kidney, gall bladder and the heart.


Who does the Ultrasound?

The Radiologist MD Doctor does the Ultrasound.  At Clinic one, we have a senior and experienced team of Radiologists who are also associated with Government hospitals in Kathmandu and Lalitpur.


What are the types of Ultrasound services provided by Clinic One?


Do I need to come in an empty stomach for the Ultrasound?

It is based on the test. If you’re performing an abdominal pelvic ultrasound, we recommend you visit in the morning with an empty stomach. For other types of ultrasound like Thyroid, Knee, Doppler, and ultrasound-guided FNAC, etc, you do not need to have an empty stomach. We advise you to call/email us for timing confirmation on mornings and evenings.


Do I need a Prescription?

It is all up to the patient. You do not require a prescription to perform a USG but if your doctor has mentioned it, please bring your prescription with you. It is always better to have a prescription as it helps in examining your cases precisely. However, Clinic One’s doctors are always ready to help and guide you if you have queries related to USG.
