Our Journey

null

The Beginning – X-rays

We began as Dr. Jankharia’s X-ray clinic in Girgaum, in Central Mumbai in 1969, on Dhanteras day with a single tube Siemens 300 mA X-ray machine. In 1985, it became one of the first centres in the city to have an image intensifier. From then on, the clinic has become the leading centre for barium studies in Mumbai, especially small bowel enema studies.

Digital

In 2001, the x-ray facility was upgraded to the first digital X-ray setup in Western and Northern India, with the installation of the Agfa ADR-Solo. This has been replaced twice, with the last state-of-the-art CR system installed in May 2015.
null

Ultrasound

In 1986, the centre acquired a state-of-the-art ALOKA 630 ultrasound scanner. Dr. Bijal Jankharia joined the centre in 1996 to take care of ultrasound and mammography. We have constantly upgraded our machines over the last 25 years and currently have three high-end machines from Wipro GE, including the Voluson E10.
null

Breast Imaging

The centre’s first mammography unit was installed in 1996, to be replaced by a high-end unit from Siemens in 2005. In January 2016, we replaced it with the Inspiration from Siemens, a 3D full field digital mammography machine, one of a handful in the country, equipped with tomosynthesis and stereotactic biopsy device. Currently, we offer holistic breast imaging with ultrasound and breast MRI.

Bone Densitometry (DXA)

To complete the “women’s imaging” setup, Western India’s first bone densitometry scanner, from Hologic, was installed in 1997, subsequently upgraded to a whole body fan beam system from GE Lunar Prodigy, which has recently been replaced by a more advanced version in December 2019.

PET/CT and Molecular Imaging

In 2009, we also became the first private practice centre to install a PET/CT scanner in our Lower Parel facility. Today, we are amongst the busiest PET/CT centres in our country and we make a difference to the management of patients with cancer.

CT Scan

The centre underwent a sea change in September 1995, with the acquisition of a Siemens AR.C CT scanner that was installed in Sir Hurkisondas Nurrottumdas Hospital & Research Centre.

In 1996, the CT scan centre had the privilege of being the first centre in India to start teleradiology facilities, which allowed transfer of CT scan images from the CT centre to Dr. Jankharia’s residence.

In 1999, the CT scanner was upgraded to a state-of-the-art spiral CT scanner, the AR.*, also from Siemens.

In Sept 2003, we moved our spiral CT to new premises at Nishat Business Centre, 2 blocks away from our main clinic, on Sardar V P Rd. In Sept 2004, we acquired the first 64-slice CT scanner in Asia. In June 2006, we also became the first private centre in India to acquire a fluoroscopic attachment with our CT scanner, which now makes it easier to perform all our CT-guided interventional procedures.

In mid-2015, we installed the Siemens TwinBeam Definition Edge, India’s and Asia’s first commercial single source, dual energy scanner that redefines both traditional CT scanning as well as dual energy scanning in diverse areas like gout, urinary calculi, metal artefact reduction, 3D angiography, etc.

In Feb 2020, we tied up with Imbio to install CALIPER, which allows quantification of interstitial lung disease, the first such independent facility outside North America and Europe.

Intervention – Biopsies and Ablations

We perform more than 100 procedures a month that include USG and CT guided biopsies, aspirations and ablations, performing complex procedures especially in the lungs (CT guided) and neck (USG guided supraclavicular biopsies)
null

Dental Imaging

To complete our dental imaging setup, an OPG machine, the Rotograph Plus from Villa India, was installed in 2000.  This was also upgraded later to a Kodak Digital OPG system and this has been recently upgraded to a Cone Beam CT from Carestream.
null

MRI

We installed the first open MRI system in Mumbai, 0.2T VIVA from Siemens. In 2003, this was upgraded to a state-of-the-art 1.5T system, the Sonata, also from Siemens. In May 2015, we installed a new 3.0 T scanner, the Philips CX, which also has new software designed for applications like metal artefact reduction. MRI elastography for the liver was added in November 2016.
In the last two years, we have also added multiparametric and strain imaging in cardiac MRI. The software and workstation have now been upgraded twice since installation to make sure it stays state-of-the-art.
null

Ablations

In Oct 2005, we became the first private centre in India to acquire a radiofrequency ablation (RFA) machine from RITA Medical Systems, to perform radiofrequency ablation of lung, liver and bone tumors. Our forte is RFA of osteoid osteomas, followed by liver and lung lesions.  In August 2021, we became the first private centre in India to instal a cryoablation machine from IceCure, Israel that uses ice-balls to treat tumors.

Opinion Services

We offer second opinion services in a variety of fields including neuroradiology, chest radiology, musculoskeletal radiology and cardiac imaging, given our subspecialty focus and handle around 100 such complex cases a month.

Our Subspecialty Focus

Apart from all the equipment, our radiologists are subspecialized and our masters in their own field. Dr. G. R. Jankharia looks after x-ray radiology and barium studies. Dr. Bhavin Jankharia looks after chest, bone and cardiac imaging and interventional CT procedures including biopsies and radiofrequency ablation. Dr. Bijal Jankharia is a nationally renowned breast imaging radiologist. Dr. Saba Shaikh is a specialist in interventional ultrasound including varicose vein ablation. Dr. Shilpa Sankhe is a renowned neuroradiologist. Dr. Nusrat Shaikh along with Dr. Bhavin Jankharia and Dr Nidhi Doshi look after the PET/CT. Dr. Khushboo Pilania is a consultant focussing on musculoskeletal imaging and MRI. Dr. Parang Sanghavi, works in CT scan, especially with chest imaging. Dr. Prachi Chaubal heads our dental radiology services. We have fellows and senior residents helping with patient management, protocols and monitoring of scans.

Branding

From July 01, 2015, the practice has been rebranded as “Picture This”, to reflect our new holistic focus on patient care.
