Fully Automated Hi-Tech Lab
We have A Fully Automated Lab to process our blood test samples. This is the first such lab in India where automation is done fully from sample identifications, decapping to sample processing and storage. Results are automatically updated and printed directly from the processing machines. Complete Automation and Barcoding of samples prevents manual handling errors and typing errors. Our high end Hematology, Pathology, Biochemistry, Hence you can be assured that your blood and urine tests receive the greatest amount of care to deliver the most accurate and precise results.

Spirometry (PFT/Pulmony Function Tests)
Our Pulmony Function Tests is equipped with most of the diagnostic testing devices and trained lab technicians. This is another common lung function test. It measures how much air is actually in your lungs when you inhale deeply. It also checks how much air remains in your lungs after you breathe out as much as you can. The test is painless and takes about 15 minutes. During plethysmography, you sit in a clear plastic box. You wear a nose clip and breathe through your mouth, in and out of a special mouthpiece.
CT Scan(Multi Slice)
The most advanced Hi-speed multislice CT Scan is capable of extremely fast imaging and can complete a whole abdominal study in one single breath hold. Advanced studies like peripheral angio, Renal angio, abdominal angio, Virtual colonoscopy, Foot angio,Brain angio with perfusion, All joints in 3d plane, virtual bronchoscopy and Angioscopy are easily accomplished on this very high end CT system. Non invasive Angiography of all the blood vessels and 3D reconstruction re routinely done.
Ultrasound Scan(3D, 4D, & Coppler Doppler)
Ultrasound or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Ultrasound images are captured in real-time and can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels. At PMK the very high resolution computerized Sonography system. Apart form routine imaging, it is possible to conduct a Colour Doppler study called B-Flow Angiography to examine the blood vessel abnormality, which can be missed even by Catherter Angiopraphy.
This equipment provides for all types of X-Rays including special examinations such as Barium Studies, Intravenuious Pyleography as well as invasive investigations like Peripheral Angiograms and Trans-Hepatic Cholangiograms. The digital X-Ray not only helps the doctor by providing superior image quality but also ensures the patient receives minimum radiation dose. An X-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. The x-ray machine sends individual x-ray particles, called photons. These particles pass through the body and a computer or special film is used to record the images that are created.
Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a system of low-dose x-rays to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to assist with the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases, such as cancer, in women. The latest Mammography system, with biopsy facilities, can detect sub-centimetre cancers of the breast. This state-of-the-art system has the ability to calculate the dose of radiation for breasts with different densities and enables to detect small cancers long before they can be felt by the patient or the doctor thereby helping the patient receive minimum radiation.
An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head, called the Temporomandibular joint or TMJ. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth.
An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heartbeat. With each heart beat, an electrical impulse (or “wave”) travels through the heart. This wave then causes the muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart. An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heartbeat.

Echo Cardiology / Doppler
An Echocardiogram uses sound waves to create images of your heart. This common test enables your doctor or cardiologist to see how your heart is beating and pumping blood. Echocardiogram images assist in identifying various abnormalities in the heart muscle and valves.The equipment at PMK gives an online display of the heart condition on the monitor. This enables imaging of heart tissues and vessels, showing their motion, blood flow intensity and direction.
A stress test, often times called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps a doctor find out how well your heart handles work. As your body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen and in effect the heart must pump more blood. The test can show if blood supply is reduced in the arteries that supply the heart. Treadmill test (TMT) or exercise stress test is one of the commonest forms of stress tests used to induce provokable myocardial ischemia for diagnostic evaluation of coronary artery disease
