Laboratory, Medicine & Pathalogy

Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Zenith Hospital is a vibrant, multifaceted department with a core mission of patient care. The Department offers a comprehensive range of pathology services, which are fully supported by consultant grade-staff. The key service objective is to provide, interpret and report analytical results with appropriate attention to quality, speed and economy, and where necessary, provide advice on any further investigations.

The Department is committed to bring quality testing across all segments of the population. The stringent quality controls and processes ensures global level of accuracy of the tests conducted. We achieve high levels of test accuracy and reporting speed through extensive internal and external Quality Assurance exercises. We conduct daily Quality Assurance runs on each instrument, besides periodic calibrations.

The Department of Laboratory Medicine is divided into sub-sections:

  • Biochemistry
  • Hematology
  • Immunology and Serology
  • Microbiology
  • Histopathology
  • Clinical Pathology

DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY

Digital X-Ray

A wide range of Digital X-Ray systems which are a mark of the global quality that we strive to provide. We have the most advanced X-Ray system, GE Healthcare and the latest in DR technology, the Aero-DR Wireless DR System by Konica Minolta.

DR Systems provide unparalleled image quality and drastically lower the radiation exposure to the patient. They also improve the workflow of a radiology department by digitizing the entire process of taking an X-Ray.

Digital imaging has led to similar improvement and renaissance in X-Ray just as it has in home and professional audio. Music albums and recordings now sound sharper and better than ever because of a digital compact disk (CD) player than on an older analog record player, similarly digital X-Rays often look sharper and clearer than its analog version.

Colour Doppler

A duplex ultrasound is a test to see how blood moves through your arteries and veins. The test combines traditional ultrasound with Doppler ultrasonography. Regular Ultrasound uses sound waves that are bounce off from blood vessels to create pictures. Doppler looks at how sound waves are reflected off from moving objects, such as blood.

There are different types of duplex ultrasound exams. Some include:

  • Arterial and venous duplex ultrasound of the abdomen examines blood vessels And blood flow in the abdominal area.
  • Carotid duplex ultrasound looks at the carotid artery in the neck.
  • Duplex ultrasound of the extremities looks at the arms or legs.
  • Renal duplex ultrasound examines the kidneys
