Founded by the pioneer radiology professor Dr. Mohamed Hafez Sherif- the ex president of Egyptian radiology association.

We aim to present & implement the mechanism of experience, accuracy & quality in medical imaging diagnosis by continuous improvement of patient care & to provide up to date technological machines and equipment.

We aspire for internationaly qualified and expert human resource because it is our deep faith that they are truly the ultimate investment to guarantee superior quality services.

We are the first to present radiology centers and ultrasound to Egypt and the MENA region in 1966. Over 50 years ago!

- 1975: first C.T scans in Egypt - Down town and Giza Branch.
- 1995: first open MRI in Egypt.
- 2006: Opening Mohandesin branch with the most up-to-date machines and equipment in medical imaging diagnosis. 
- 2016: Opening of Sheikh Zayed branch with the NEWEST WORLD-CLASS international quality medical services


Our slogan: Experience- Accuracy - Quality .
At mega scan works more than 30 doctors, 50 technicians- nurses and admins all together focuses on caring and serving our patients according to principles of professor Dr.Hafez sherif.

FAQ

Radiation exposure
During a CT scan, you're briefly exposed to ionizing radiation. The amount of radiation is greater than you would get during a plain X-ray because the CT scan gathers more detailed information. CT scans have not been shown to cause long-term harm, although there may be a very small potential to increase your risk of cancer.
CT scans have many benefits that outweigh this small potential risk. Doctors use the lowest dose of radiation possible to obtain the needed medical information. Also, newer, faster machines and techniques require less radiation than was previously used. Talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks of your CT scan.
Harm to unborn babies
Tell your doctor if you're pregnant. Although the radiation from a CT scan is unlikely to injure your baby, your doctor may recommend another type of exam, such as ultrasound or MRI, to avoid exposing your baby to radiation.
Reactions to contrast material
In certain cases, your doctor may recommend you receive a special dye called a contrast material through a vein in your arm before your CT scan. Although rare, the contrast material can cause medical problems or allergic reactions.
Most reactions are mild and result in a rash or itchiness. In rare instances, an allergic reaction can be serious, even life-threatening. Tell your doctor if you've ever had a reaction to contrast material.


Mammography is a specific type of breast imaging that uses low-dose x-rays to detect cancer early – before women experience symptoms – when it is most treatable.
Tell your doctor about any breast symptoms or problems, prior surgeries, hormone use, whether you have a family or personal history of breast cancer, and if there’s a possibility you are pregnant. If possible, obtain copies of your prior mammograms and make them available to your radiologist on the day of your exam. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown. Don’t wear deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts as these may appear on the mammogram and interfere with correct diagnosis.


The injected dose in the patient does not pose a risk to the patient's health under normal circumstances. However, there are precautions to be avoided, as in the case of pregnant women, where radioactive material may be a real danger to the fetus, especially in the first months of pregnancy. It should be noted that the patient is the same source of radiation, and this may continue for several hours after the end of the examination (sometimes for 24 hours), in these cases advised not to contact the patient for long periods during those hours, so as not to contact relatives without radiation unnecessarily.
