The department is working under the regulatory requirement of Kenya Radiation Board. For quality assurance and Radiation safety, regular audits and inspection are conducted annually.
The department is fortified with a team of radiologists and trained/certified radiographers
State of the art facilities include:
- General/special radiography
- Dental Imaging
- Orthopantomography (OPG)
- Intra oral periapical (IOPA)
- Ultrasound Imaging including Colour Doppler and obstetric ultrasound.
- Low dose CT Scan with cardiac imaging application and CT Angiography (Philips ingenuity 128 I dose slice system)
Moving towards film-less radiology the department is equipped with Picture Archiving and Communicating System (PACS).
General radiography procedures inclusive of IVP and Fluoroscopy are carried out on Computed Radiography System (CR) which has minimized the patient waiting time, radiation dose, and report turnaround time.
