ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation)

At Sentini City Hospital, we offer Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) for patients with severe respiratory or cardiac failure. ECMO provides critical support by circulating blood through an artificial lung, adding oxygen and removing carbon dioxide. This allows the heart and lungs to rest and heal, acting as a life-saving bridge to recovery or further treatment. Our dedicated Pulmonology and Critical Care specialists manage ECMO round-the-clock, ensuring the highest standard of care.

EBUS (Endobronchial Ultrasound)

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) at Sentini City Hospital is a minimally invasive procedure that provides detailed images of the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes. EBUS is essential for diagnosing and staging lung cancer, as well as detecting other thoracic diseases. Our skilled team uses EBUS to obtain tissue samples without the need for more invasive surgery, ensuring accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment plans with minimal patient discomfort.


Bronchoscopy at Sentini City Hospital allows our specialists to directly view the airways for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This procedure is used to diagnose lung diseases, remove obstructions, and collect tissue samples. With advanced bronchoscopy technology, our Pulmonology and Critical Care team can provide precise interventions, improving patient outcomes and respiratory health.

Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs)

Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs) at Sentini City Hospital are crucial for assessing lung function and diagnosing respiratory conditions. Our comprehensive PFTs include spirometry, lung volume measurement, diffusion capacity tests, and body plethysmography. These tests provide detailed insights into lung capacity and mechanics, enabling our specialists to tailor effective treatment plans for conditions such as asthma, COPD, and restrictive lung diseases.

CT Angiography (CT Angio)

CT Angiography at Sentini City Hospital offers a non-invasive way to visualize blood vessels and diagnose vascular diseases. This advanced imaging technique provides detailed images of arteries and veins, helping to detect blockages, aneurysms, and other vascular conditions. Our state-of-the-art CT Angio services ensure accurate diagnoses, guiding effective treatment plans to improve cardiovascular health and patient outcomes.

Diagnostics and Imaging Department Overview:

The Diagnostics and Imaging Department serves as a cornerstone in modern healthcare, employing advanced technologies to facilitate precise disease diagnosis and visualization of internal structures. This multifaceted department integrates various specialized divisions, each utilizing distinct imaging modalities and diagnostic tools tailored to specific medical needs.


Central to the Diagnostics and Imaging Department is Radiology, utilizing a diverse range of techniques for in-depth visualization. X-rays offer a fundamental perspective on bone structures, while CT scans provide cross-sectional images vital for assessing organs and tissues. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) employs powerful magnets for high-resolution soft tissue imaging, and Ultrasound, a radiation-free modality, is invaluable for real-time imaging. Additionally, Nuclear Medicine employs radioactive tracers to visualize molecular activity, enhancing diagnostic capabilities.


Within the department, Cardiology focuses on the intricate imaging of the heart and vasculature. Echocardiography utilizes sound waves for dynamic heart imaging, while Angiography, combining contrast agents and X-rays, visualizes blood vessels. Cardiac CT and nuclear cardiology techniques offer detailed insights into cardiac structure and function, playing a pivotal role in diagnosing and managing cardiovascular diseases.


While not traditionally associated with imaging, the Pathology Department contributes significantly to diagnostics. Pathologists employ tools such as microscopic tissue examination, molecular testing, and cytogenetics to analyze tissues and cells. This department acts as a crucial link between clinical observations and laboratory analyses, providing essential information for disease diagnosis and treatment planning.


Dedicated to gastrointestinal health, the Diagnostics and Imaging Department in Gastroenterology employs advanced techniques for comprehensive visualization. Endoscopy and colonoscopy enable direct inspection of the gastrointestinal tract, crucial for identifying conditions like inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer. Complementary imaging modalities, including CT enterography and MRI enterography, offer detailed anatomical information.


The Neurology Division within the department focuses on the intricate structures of the brain and nervous system. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans provide detailed insights into brain structures, aiding in the diagnosis of strokes, brain tumors, and neurodegenerative diseases. Functional imaging techniques, including Positron Emission Tomography (PET), contribute valuable data on brain activity.

In summary, the Diagnostics and Imaging Department stands as a nexus of technological innovation and medical expertise, encompassing a broad spectrum of imaging modalities and diagnostic tools. This convergence of specialties within the department underscores its pivotal role in advancing medical diagnostics, ensuring accurate assessments, and facilitating tailored treatment plans for improved patient outcomes.
