Our radiology practice is equipped with 2 digital x-ray machines and 2 digital fluoroscopy machines.
Our practice provides all radiographic and fluoroscopic examinations.
These examinations include x-rays of all parts of the body and a number of more specialized examinations such as contrast studies of gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.
Some preparation of the patient may be required prior to certain contrast studies. Please check with radiology when booking your examination.
Our radiology practice is equipped with a digital Mammography machine.
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. ... A mammography exam, called a mammogram, aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
An ultrasound machine emits very high frequency, inaudible sound waves which reflect off body tissues to create images of internal organs. The procedure is painless and usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Ultrasound is safe and there is NO RADIATION.
We have 12 ultrasound machines operated by expertly trained Sonographers and radiologists.
A full bladder is often useful to see pelvic organs and you may be required to drink water before the scan.
When making your booking, you may be asked to not eat anything for 6 hours before your ultrasound scan. This results in less gas in the stomach and intestines and is especially important when examining some of the upper abdominal structures.
A CT or CAT scanner is a doughnut-shaped machine that uses advanced x-ray technology to create images of your body.
A computer then reconstructs the cross-sectional images of your body, called slices or sections.
Advancements in CT technology now make it possible to diagnose certain diseases earlier and more accurately than with other imaging tools.
Our radiology practice uses the most advanced scanner technology available, providing images of exceptional quality and the lowest possible radiation dose.
Our new 64 slice scanner allows us to perform advanced 3-D reconstructions.
Our radiology practice is equipped with an advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit of 1.5Tesla.
MRI uses no radiation and delivers exquisite images of the body with no known detrimental health effects.
MRI uses a powerful magnet which is permanently activated and patients with any metallic implants or other metallic fragments in their body should make this known to their doctor or radiologist prior to entering the MRI room.
Patients with pacemakers should under no circumstances enter the MRI room.
