X-ray & Ultrasound
Embu Level 5 Hospital has a full-service radiology department, offering X-ray, ultrasound, and computerized tomography. Exams are performed by trained radiographers and read by either the ordering consultant physicians or radiologists, sometimes by remote technology. In addition, our radiographers perform hospital-wide EKGs, as well as portable X-ray exams on unstable patients in the ICU, neonatal nursery, and emergency department. We are currently in the early stages of upgrading the entire radiology department to a digital format, in order to better serve our patients and to cut down on overall operational expenses of the department.
