We pride ourselves in offering professional and exceptional care and service to both our referring doctors and patients.
A Breast Biopsy is where a special needle is inserted into the breast to take a small sample of breast tissue from an area of concern so that it can be sent to a laboratory for testing. An abnormality may have been identified on a scan or X-ray image or may have been felt as a lump.
BONE DENSITOMETRY (BMD)
Bone densitometry, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) uses low dose xrays to produce images of the bones. It is most commonly performed on the lumbar spine and hips but sometimes also includes the distal forearm. There is good correlation between the amount of bone measured, and bone strength.
COMPUTERISED TOMOGRAPHY (CT)
A CT scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that combines x-ray technology and computer-generated cross-sectional images or "slices" of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including bones, muscles, fat, blood vessels and organs.
MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING
We have highly trained and experienced M.R. technicians and radiologists.
With this sophisticated equipment at our disposal, we can ensure that patients are imaged as swiftly as possible, and an expert MR radiologist is always at hand to provide the patient with reassurance and explanation of how the scan is progressing.
Nuclear Medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses the nuclear properties of matter in diagnosis and therapy.
Nuclear Medicine uses radionuclides/radioisotopes or radiopharmaceuticals that are either injected into the vein or intradermally, ingested with food or liquids or inhaled in gaseous form.
SPECT is a scintigraphic technique in which a computer-generated image of local radioactive tracer distribution in tissues is produced through the detection of single-photon emissions from radionuclides introduced into the body that is able to provide true three-dimensional (3D) information. T
