Computed Tomography (CT 128 Slices)
The CT scanner produces three-dimensional images of the body far superior to conventional X-rays. It can be used to diagnose a wide variety of conditions and is instrumental in the early detection of certain forms of cancer and heart disease.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI 1.5 Tesla)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging provides a high quality image of tissues in the body using magnetic and radio waves. There is no exposure to potentially damaging forms of radiation and it is therefore useful for examining the brain, heart and muscles in your body. Typically only available in large city hospitals and with a waiting list, our MRI services can be performed almost immediately.
Used to identify breast cancer in its early stages, digital mammograms can detect small lumps that cannot be felt. Early diagnosis is extremely important for effective treatment and prevention of further issues.
An ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to obtain images of internal organs and structures within the body. It was first developed to create images of fetuses inside their mother’s abdomen, but is now used for many other purposes including imaging of the heart, kidney and liver. The procedure is painless and does not involve any radiation.
Bone Density Scan
This medical imaging technique is used to diagnose osteoporosis or the softening of bones. Bone density scans are particularly important for post-menopausal women.
