Bone Mineral Densitometry, also commonly referred to as BMD, is the examination that uses a special machine to scan the lower spine and one of the hips, to assess for possible osteoporosis or reduced bone density.
EOS can capture full-body images of patients in a standing position with an outstanding reduction in radiation dose — up to nine times less than a conventional X-ray* and 20 times less than CT.
Interventional procedures are highly specialised examinations that require personal attendance by one of our imaging specialists, and involve either the injection of drugs or the removal of tissue (biopsies).
This procedure provides detailed images of soft tissue, bone, fat, muscles and the internal organs of your body. A series of images are taken through sections of your body, in any direction desired.
A Mammogram is a low dose x-ray examination of the breasts and an important tool for the detection of breast pathology. The examination is performed by a Radiographer with specialised skills using specially designed equipment.
Nuclear Medicine is a branch of diagnostic imaging that uses very small amounts of radioactive material, or tracer, to provide information about the function or structure of particular organs such as your heart, lungs, bones or liver.
PET‐CT technology is a major development in cancer detection and an accurate and cost effective way to monitor response to therapy.
PET stands for “Positron Emission Tomography”.
It is an advanced imaging technique that uses very small amounts of radioactive tracer called “FDG” (similar to sugar), to produce images showing how your body is functioning
Ultrasound examinations can be performed on most parts of the body and provide excellent information about a variety of conditions – from pregnancy to gallstones, varicose veins and even muscle tears.
