About Us

  • NM Medical is the pioneer of radiology, cardiology, pathology, and preventive health checkups in a diagnostic centre setting in India.
  • In the 1980s, NM Medical was the first to introduce Ultrasound into the private practice domain.
  • In the 1990s, NM Medical introduced preventive cardiology and pathology into the diagnostic centre model as also CT Scan and MRI for the first time outside a hospital setup.
  • In the 2000s NM Medical introduced the concept of corporate health checkups, which was then replicated by many other institutes but never with comparable success to as no other centre possesses the complete set of facilities that NM Medical offers under one roof with the requisite level of service expertise.
  • NM Medical is designed to de-stress and perhaps add a bit of fun to the realm of preventive healthcare. It creates a refreshingly different healthcare experience as it is free from the stressful smells, exposure to sick patients and shuffling across various departments on different floors, commonly associated with health check-up at hospitals. The waiting lounge at NM Medical is inspired by the insides of a luxury jetliner with a happening business cum entertainment centre, staffed with guest relation executives to complete the picture.
  • Since 2010 NM Medical has been accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) as per ISO 15189:2007 standards. Less than 0.2% of medical laboratories in India are accredited by NABL.
  • As per the annual report on hospitals and diagnostic centres nationwide published by Newsweek in 2010, NM Medical is ranked among the top 3 diagnostic facilities in Mumbai. Among these 3 facilities, NM Medical is the only one offering the unique combination of pathology and radiology under one roof and that too in a private centre setting with multiple locations.
  • Presently NM Medical operates 9 centres across Mumbai, Pune, and Bangalore.

ECG

  • An electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG) is an electrical recording of the heart and is used in the investigation of heart disease.
  • It is a graphic display of the electrical activity of the heart.
  • An ECG may be done as part of a routine physical exam. It may be repeated any time there are questions about the working of your heart.
  • You will be brought to the ECG department in the centre. The technician will ask you to take off your clothing from the waist up, put on a gown, and lie down on a small bed. The technician will place a small electrode (a small self-sticking plastic patch) on each of your arms and legs and across six areas on your chest. You need to lie still for the minute or two that it takes the machine to make a record.

Stress Test

  • A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps physicians find out how well the heart handles stress. As the body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen and the heart has to pump more blood. The test can show if the blood supply is reduced in the arteries that supply the heart. It also helps doctors know the kind and level of exercise appropriate for a patient.
A Person Taking the Test Is hooked up to equipment to monitor the heart
  • Walks slowly in place on a treadmill, on which the speed is increased for a faster pace and which is tilted to produce the effect of going up a small hill.
  • May be asked to breathe into a tube for a couple of minutes.
  • Can stop the test at any time if necessary.
  • Afterwards will sit or lie down to have the heart and blood pressure checked.
  • Heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, electrocardiogram (E.C.G. or E.K.G.), and how tired one feels are monitored during the test.
  • There's very little risk in taking the test in healthy persons - no more than if a person walks fast or jogs up a big hill.
  • A cardiologist is present to conduct all StressTests at NM Medical.
 

2D EchoCardiography

Two-Dimensional Echocardiography can provide excellent images of the heart, paracardiac structures, and the great vessels. During a standard echo, the sound waves are directed to the heart from a small hand-held device called a transducer, which sends and receives signals. Heart walls and valves reflect part of the sound waves back to the transducer to produce pictures of the heart. These images appear in black and white and in color on a TV screen. They're selectively recorded on videotape and special paper, and reviewed and interpreted by a cardiologist (heart specialist). From the pictures it is possible to measure the size of each part of your heart, to study motion and appearance of the valves and the function of the heart muscle.
 
Our physician will use the measurements to determine how your heart is working and whether or not any abnormalities are present. A Doppler echo is often done at the same time in order to determine how the blood flows in your heart. The swishing sounds you hear during the test indicate blood flowing through the valves and chambers.
 

Sonography

Sonography, or Ultrasound, utilizes high frequency sound waves (not x-rays) to obtain diagnostic images. Ultrasound imaging is used to evaluate many parts of the body, including the abdomen, blood vessels, fetus of pregnant women, superficial body structures, and newborn brain to name only a few.
 
Ultrasonography Enables to Detect and Investigate :
  • All diseases of the organs of the abdominal cavity in early stages.
  • Tumors of uterus and ovaries and abnormalities of reproductive organs.
  • Maturation of eggs and changes of endometrium in different stages of menstrual cycle.
  • Early pregnancy, including entopic pregnancy.
  • Development of fetuses and possible malformations of fetuses.
  • Position of the fetus, position of the placenta in the uterus and changes in it. It is also possible to estimate the quantity of amniotic fluid, evaluate heart function and breathing Movements of the fetus
(4D) Sonography :
 
  • Real time live 3D (4D) Sonography provides a three-dimensional view of the fetus in motion and is one of the most important modern innovations in the field of Ultrasound.
  • The clear view of the fetus from all angles allows doctors to detect any congenital abnormalities at an early stage and chart a course for corrective measures at an early and preventable stage.
  • The image quality is so clear and sharp that one can get a fairly accurate impression of how the baby's features will look upon birth.
  • At NM Medical all our sonography suites are equipped with high-end plasma screens to allow the expectant mother to view the baby growing inside her in the course of her pregnancy.
  • One can view the baby yawning, sucking its thumb, kicking its feet, and moving its hands. We also provide all pregnancy sonography patients with a collection of video clips and images of the unborn child to create a lifelong memory for the mother and the child.
 

Colour Doppler

The outstanding dual combination of award winning technologies GE VOLUSON  and ACUSON SEQUOIA  for Colour Doppler at Health 360 provides superb image quality for the following applications:
  • Carotid Colour Doppler to detect risk of stroke and paralysis by evaluating the vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain.
  • Peripherial Arterial Colour Doppler.
  • Peripherial Venous Colour Doppler for detection of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
  • Renal Doppler (especially for hypertensive patients and diabetics).

Mammography

  • Mammography is a screening tool for breast cancer. It provides  advanced digital imaging technology for the dual benefits of optimum diagnostic quality and maximum patient comfort.
  • Mammography is important because in its earliest stages breast cancer may not be palpable; it may be too small to feel as a lump or tissue change.
  • Mammography can help detect these changes two years or more before you would feel them. Physical examination is also important because pre-menopausal breast tissue is often dense and fibrous, which may decrease the reliability of mammography for young women.
 
Age Recommendations for Mammography for Women at Average Risk for Developing Breast Cancer :
  • Over 50 years : All women over the age of 50 years should have annual mammography examinations.
  • 40-50 years : The Indian Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women in this age group. The National Cancer Institute recommends that these women get a mammogram every 1-2 years. Your physician should offer appropriate guidance on this issue according to your personal medical history.
  • Under 40 years : Most women under the age of 40 years do not need annual mammograms. However a baseline mammogram may be done at 35 years.
You may be at higher risk for breast cancer if :
  • You have already had breast cancer, especially before menopause.
  • You are genetically susceptible to cancer, i.e. you have close relatives with breast cancer.
  • You are undertaking hormone replacement therapy. Unmarried women and those without children are also at risk.
Mammography FAQs
 
Does mammography itself cause breast cancer because of radiation? :
  • The radiation exposure with mammography is very less. Also if the pros and cons of mammography are weighed, the pros outweigh the cons by far. The radiation effect on the breasts decreases exponentially after 35 years of age. The only precaution to be taken is that the patient should be sure that she is not pregnant.
What is the sonomammography? Why do mammography when everything is seen on sonomammography :
  • Sonomammography is sonography of the breasts.  It helps in distinguishing a cystic mass from a solid mass. Cysts are always benign. Mammography is required as the earliest of cancers are seen only on this modality.
Can one definitely tell whether a mass is benign or malignant :
  • It is not possible to tell 100% whether a mass is benign or malignant on either mammography or sonography. To be 100% sure, a biopsy is required. Sonography and mammography, both together are 95% accurate in diagnosing a lesion.
If a close relative has breast cancer, what are the chances of a person getting it? :
  • The chances are 5-15% if it is a first degree relative particularly on the maternal side. The person is at a high risk & should start doing mammography 10-15 years earlier than the age at which the relative got breast cancer.

Dexa - Bone - Densitometry

  • DEXA Bone Densitometry is the gold standard for measuring bone mass and detecting Osteoporosis.
  • Osteoporosis is a bone disorder that can be described as a generalized weakening of the skeleton due to loss of bone and calcium. A skeleton that has been weakened by bone loss is more likely to fracture, and people with osteoporosis have a high incidence of fractures. If all those people with osteoporosis could be identified and treated, a large number of fractures could be prevented.
  • In India, 1 in 6 women over 50 years old will break their femur (hip), while 1 in 4 will suffer severe fractures in one or more bones.
  • The death rate from osteoporosis related fractures is greater than deaths caused by breast and ovarian cancer combined. 
  • In contrast, conventional portable machines can only scan single sites.
  • An annual DEXA scan is recommended after the age of 40 years (especially for women). For those at high risk for osteoporosis as identified below, scans at an earlier age may be required.
Experts believe you may be at risk for osteoporosis if you have one or more of the following :
  • Family history of osteoporosis.
  • Early menopause either natural or surgical.
  • Amenorrhea (lack of periods) particularly in young woman.
  • Anti-seizure medicine for many years.
  • Hyperthyroidism or hyperparathyroidism.
  • Cushing's syndrome.
