Diagnostic imaging - introduction

Techniques of the diagnostic imaging department


X-ray can be considered the most popular diagnostic technique from past to present. Coming to Phuong Nam Hospital, you will experience the safest X-ray service. With safety criteria for customers, the Diagnostic Imaging Department sets shielding requirements, ensuring that sensitive parts of the body (not in the part to be photographed) must be shielded with lead shields such as: lead apron, lead shirt...


Ultrasound can be considered one of the safest models in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging. Ultrasound uses high-frequency ultrasound waves to record images directly in the body through a probe. Customers can feel secure while using this service.


Mammography is a very important technique in detecting and diagnosing cancer. Understanding this inevitable problem, Phuong Nam Hospital has been equipped with 3D Mammography equipment with the ability to provide image quality superior to conventional 2D mammography machines. In addition, with the new image sequence function, the device also reduces radiation time and radiation dose without affecting image quality, increasing customer safety during the X-ray process.

Osteoporosis measurement 

With the increasing health care needs of customers, in addition to the need to check organs and body parts, people have now begun to care about to the problem of bone calcium density in the body - especially for women after menopause. Testing for bone calcium density problems will be performed through the osteoporosis machine of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging. The osteoporosis meter has measurement functions in many locations such as: Lumbar spine, femoral neck on both sides, wrists, ankles... and whole body measurement function to further diagnose the amount of fat in the body. Normally, the doctor will prescribe measurements at the lumbar spine and femoral neck because these two parts are the two load-bearing parts of the body. In addition, measuring osteoporosis also predicts the risk of fractures in different locations.
