Most of the Government run hospitals and part of the private centers in Alexandria do not have highly sophisticated imaging equipment, so they refer their patients for scans, imaging and diagnosis to the Dar el Ashaa Center. Hello my name is Professor Ihab Reda and I am Professor in Radiodiagnosis in Alexandria Faculty of Medicine and Board Vice President at the Dar El Ashaa which is an Imaging Center in Alexandria. We carry out medical examinations and imaging for thousands of patients, diagnose their condition so that their doctors and consultants can recommend the correct medical treatment. We carry out CT and MRI scans, Radiography, Angiography and Ultrasonography. Over the past few years the demand for medical imaging has increased significantly, so we now have five imaging Centers in Alexandria to cope with this increasing demand. Our aim is to reach a precise diagnosis of the patient's condition utilising the safest, fastest and most cost effective imaging technique. We aim to give the very best possible care to our patients at all times and in the quickest, most convenient way possible.
