Khyber Teaching Hospital MTI
Dr. Hina Gul
Our Radiology Department in Khyber Teaching Hospital (MTI), Peshawar may also be called the X-ray or imaging department is the facility where radiological examinations of patients are carried out, using the range of equipment listed below. Our integrated radiology department offers many opportunities with regard to quality, 24/7 coverage, logistics, economics, management and specialized logistic support compared to decentralised imaging structures* Sub-specialisation related to clinical fields and continuous participation in multidisciplinary activities in our department are key factors contributing to the radiologist’s clinical relevance to patients and colleagues* Implementation of the evolving hybrid imaging modalities requiring knowledge and skills in radiology can best be accomplished in a central imaging department. The smooth and safe referral process by the refereeing physician and easy accessibility for consultant opinion and medical expertise in 24 hour courage. We have ongoing facilities in various aspects such as modern ultrasound machines with high resolution as well as TVS facility. Digital X-ray machines and mammography adds additional advantage to the upbringing diagnostic efficacy CT scan and MRI adds expertise in the radiological diagnosis for the patient’s advantage and prompt treatment.

- X-ray, or radiography, is used to diagnose fractured bones, detect injury or infection, or to locate foreign objects in soft tissue. Some x-ray exams employ an iodine-based contrast material to clarify the visibility of specific organs like the heart, lungs, blood vessels or tissues.
- Computed tomography (CT) creates detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. CT is considered by many doctors as the preferred method to detect cancer, since it can confirm the presence of a tumor and determine its size and location. In emergency cases, CT can quickly reveal internal injuries and bleeding to help save lives.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to detect conditions such as tumors and diseases of the liver, heart and bowel. MRI may also be used to monitor an unborn child in the womb.
- Ultrasound imaging is an effective method of diagnosing unexplained pain, swelling and infection. It can provide imaging guidance for needle biopsies or evaluate conditions related to blood flow. Ultrasound is also the preferred imaging method for monitoring a pregnant woman and her unborn child.
- Mammography breast imaging uses low-dose x-rays to detect cancer early —when it is most treatable. Mammography plays a leading role in early detection, because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you or your physician can feel them.
