MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a test that uses powerful magnets, radio waves, and a computer to make detailed pictures inside your body.MRI helps a doctor diagnose a disease or injury, and it can monitor how well you’re doing with a treatment. Unlike X-Rays, it does not use radiation.
CT Scan (Computed tomography) is a diagnostic imaging test used to help detect diseases of the small bowel, colon and other internal organs and is also used to determine the cause of unexplained pain. The process is fast, painless, noninvasive and accurate.
Ultrasound Scan is a safe test procedure and easily performed. It is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gallbladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, and other organs and parts of the body, and it can also also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages.

Mammography is X-ray imaging of your breasts designed to detect tumors and other abnormalities. Mammography can be used either for screening or for diagnostic purposes in evaluating a breast lump.
Bone Densitometry is a test similar to X-ray that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. We primarily use it to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone's mineral and density are low.
Cerebral stroke or 'Brain Attack' is the leading cause of disability and probably the third leading cause of death in India. At Unity Memorial Hospital, we use a new technique known as a temporary endovascular bypass. There are interventional neurological procedures, which are used for the treatment of acute stroke or epilepsy and are practised abroad very routinely. We hope to increase awareness of stroke and its prevention so that the focus is on prevention rather than cure. The network of hospitals under Unity Memorial Hospital offers comprehensive packages for epileptic care services, cerebral stroke programmes including rehabilitation and evaluation of complex neuromuscular disorders for which a recommended course of treatment is followed.
Today's option to treat diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord without surgery, Interventional Neurology is a specialty which uses minimally invasive and image-based technologies procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord (neurovascular diseases). These diseases include paralytic strokes, brain aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVM’s) of blood supplying the brain and spinal cords using coiling, stenting, and embolization. Stroke “Brain attack “, is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to the disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Stroke is the first leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death in India. The prevalence rate of stroke is 1.54 per thousand. India will face an enormous socio-economic burden to meet the costs of rehabilitation of "Stroke victims" because the population is now surviving through the peak years of the occurrence of stroke. Stroke is a treatable and preventable disease.
Recognizing the need to rehabilitate patients with neurological/spinal injuries or disorders into mainstream life.
