The leading private clinic in Israel
round-the-clock support service

High-tech equipment systems are used here – the most advanced today. These include radiodiagnostic equipment (which includes X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and cone beam CT scans). At the Assuta Clinic, the CT examination is performed with a scanner that has the ability to obtain up to 64 slices in a short period of time. The video camera for radiation diagnostics is equipped with two recording devices, and the tomograph is equipped with state-of-the-art computer programs.

All applied technological developments meet the highest quality standard. Thanks to this, the accuracy of the decoding of the data collected during the diagnostic study is exceptional.

Assuta Hospital Quality Standards for Medical Imaging

In providing diagnostic services to the patient, special attention is paid to reducing the time interval between visits, as well as the speed of processing and deciphering the data obtained. If the case is urgent, verification procedures are performed on the same day. In standard cases, the diagnostic results are available to the patient within three days.
It should be noted that the speed of processing the results of diagnostic tests at Assuta is one of the highest among reputable medical institutions around the world.

The basic rule of the Assuta diagnostic department is to perform the procedures according to detailed protocols, developed in accordance with the clinical indications of each examination.

As Dr. Segal Tal, Head of the Medical Imaging Department at the Assuta Clinic, says: “In our country, no one can match the quality of each instrumental diagnostic procedure. We work hard to achieve a high level of accuracy in the processing and interpretation of the data. We have highly qualified specialists with a serious approach to the matter, whether it’s cardiological tests, body organ scans, CT scans, mammograms, muscle bone studies, etc. All this together proves the highest quality of our work.”

It is worth mentioning the tools for efficient management and administration of the workflow – computer systems PACS and RIS. PACS is a digital archive of information, which allows you to optimize the decoding process and reduce the waiting time for results. The RIS Radiology Information System allows us to obtain all the necessary data from each patient’s medical history. As a rule, when the data are processed by the radiologist, they are automatically entered into the database and certified by the doctor’s signature.

Patient safety is paramount!

The course of diagnostic procedures is designed to ensure the safety of all manipulations. For this purpose, the hospital widely uses programs that automatically calculate the necessary dose of radiation to avoid unnecessary exposure of the patient’s body to radioactive radiation. At the same time, the resulting image is of high quality and high resolution. Based on such individual parameters as: the patient’s body size, weight and the specifics of the area to be examined – the program automatically calculates the necessary dose of radiation. To perform this kind of research, the clinic uses isoosmolar substances of non-ionic nature, which are considered the best materials for use in this field.

To check the quality of the results, the Assuta Diagnostic Department uses a double check technique. This approach represents a quality check on the performance of each procedure, according to the clinical objectives and the final data collected during the examination.

Benefits of Medical Imaging at Assuta Clinic

Physicians in the medical imaging department have all the tools they need to be effective clinically. The whole process of performing diagnostic procedures is calculated and thought out in detail, taking into account the individual characteristics of the patient. The waiting time is reduced to a minimum, both for the procedure itself and for the results.
