Digital Imaging

Södersjukhuset’s ultra-modern, fully computerised Department of Medical Imaging conducts examinations of some 400 patients a day using X-ray technology, ultrasound, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and nuclear diagnostic techniques.

Close to seventy percent of the scans conducted by the hospital’s X-ray clinic are emergency cases.

The newly accredited physiological clinic receives patients referred from both outpatient clinics and from Södersjukhuset’s own clinics, for emergency diagnostic examinations as well as by appointment. The clinic conducts some 10 000 ultrasonic cardiovascular examinations and 5000 electrophysiological examinations a year, to measure the body’s functions when in action and at rest.
