Radiology and Imaging Sciences

Imaging, the ‘visual inspection of internal organs without an incision’, is integral to making an accurate diagnosis, charting a treatment course and planning every aspect of a surgery. MIOT’s Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is one of the most advanced facilities in the country and on par with healthcare institutions in the West.

Sigma metric verification of performance


MIOT Hospitals becomes the 1st laboratory in India to achieve the Sigma Verification of Performance. MIOT has proved being a living example of a department showing great courage to “think out of the box ” by implementing Sigma across all phases of the laboratory testing process from the time of lab test billing to reporting of patient results.

The word Sigma is a “measure of reduction errors in a work process”. Sigma is a numerical grading system starting from 1 to 6 and above. “Higher the grade of Sigma, lesser the number of errors, which ultimately signifies better quality”. The Sigma concept was introduced into the world of industry in 1980 to improve quality and it became a dictum in industrial sector that when the quality of a product or a process reaches a Sigma score of “six” (SIX SIGMA), the product or process has reached “world-class quality “!! .

The idea behind implementation of Sigma in the field of Clinical Laboratory Medicine was conceptualised in early 2000 by Sir. James Westgard, considered as the ‘Father of Quality of Modern Laboratory Medicine’. The key objectives of this ideology was to bring in an order to objectively monitor, measure and reduce the errors in results reported by a Clinical Laboratory, since more than 70% of clinical decisions are made based on the Laboratory results.

Westgard Corporation initiated a sigma certification program in the USA for medical laboratories a decade back. Many medical testing laboratories from around the world have enrolled for this program and achieved Six Sigma certification from Westgard, except laboratories from India. The Department of Laboratory Medicine, MIOT Hospitals is the first in India to drive the noble initiative in implementing the concept of sigma in hospital practice and having succeeded in achieving Six Sigma certification from Westgard Corporation.

Implementation of sigma as a quality tool across all phases of testing in a clinical laboratory significantly helps to improve patients ‘ safety, by reducing the errors and improving the quality of results reported to patients.

The widespread fear in the minds of many clinical laboratories moving in the path of national accreditation bodies like National Accreditation Board for Medical Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) and international accreditation bodies like the College of American Pathologists (CAP) regarding the use of sigma in quality management shall be eradicated from their minds, since none of the accrediting bodies are against the use of quality tools like sigma or lean as a part of quality management system.

The Department of Laboratory Medicine, MIOT Hospitals has ultimately succeeded in becoming the first Indian laboratory to receive Westgard Six Sigma certification and implementing Sigma as part of laboratory practice across all phases of testing process for patient safety.

Recognition for Quality and Excellence

Accreditation by the Indian Health Organisation
MIOT International has been independently assessed and accredited by the Indian Health Organization for its compliance with the principles and practice of clinical governance as defined and laid down by the Indian Health Organization.

Certificate of Compliance from Quality Council of India (2013 – 2015)
MIOT Laboratory Services was awarded this certification in recognition of standards that reflect internationally-accepted processes and procedures for clinical laboratories that consistently produce accurate results. The Essential Standards incorporate a step-wise improvement process and create the foundation for compliance with ISO 15189 – the global standard for quality and competence in medical laboratories.

Sophisticated Imaging Equipment

The department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at MIOT International is equipped with sophisticated imaging equipment, which includes multiple digital X-Ray units, multiple portable X-Ray units with computerised radiography, colour Doppler ultrasound units, 750 HD Whole Body CT Scan, 1.5 T Whole Body MRI HDxt, digital mammography with contrast-enhanced mammography and tomographic mammography with stereotactic biopsy and bone-mineral densitometry.

Ultrasonography Modalities

Ultrasonography ModalitiesMIOT International has a 4D ultrasound with colour Doppler as well as portable 3D colour Doppler and intra-operative colour units. These enable physicians and surgeons to get a better view of the abdomen, chest, thyroid, breast, scrotum and musculo-skeletal system. They also enable liver elastography, which is performed routinely.

We use the most recent ultrasound machines to perform routine as well as special ultrasound imaging, as well as ultrasound guided biopsies.

750 HD CT Scan

MIOT is the first hospital in India to have a 750 HD CT scan with dual energy imaging. Patients benefit as the high-resolution, high-definition images aid in accurate diagnosis, there is minimal radiation exposure, and the whole body can be scanned in under a minute. This also translates into greater comfort for the patient.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The state-of-the-art 3T MRI enables Imaging of the whole body, including routine studies of the breast, small joints, brain and spine. Specialised studies such as spectroscopy, diffusion tensor imaging, MR angiography, and MR mammography are also carried out.

4D Echocardiography

4D Echocardiography4D echo machines like the IE 333, which have a transesophageal probe, are helpful for patients who require a valve replacement.

Digital Mamma-tomography

Digital Mammo-tomographyFor the first time in the country, digital mamma-tomography and contrast-enhanced mammography is available at MIOT International. This enables the detection of lesions hidden even in dense breasts as well as the differentiation between scar tissue and recurrent tumours. This aids the detection of multicentric tumours in the early stages. Lesions identified using mammography are screened with ultrasound equipped with elastography and all suspicious lesions are biopsied, employing either an imaging ultrasound or imaging the specialised stereotactic biopsy system. Early detection translates into early treatment and a better chance of a normal life.
