X-RAY

Radiography Services

X-rays are low wavelength radiation which can penetrate tissues to create shadow type images of the body. They are simple, quick and effective. X-Ray is often used when people need imaging of body regions such as the chest, joints and bones.

CT

Radiography Services

 

CT machines use rotating x-ray beams and powerful computing to make slice-like and 3D pictures of the body. Our state of the art CT scanners produce high definition images with low patient radiation dose. CT scans are used when people need investigation of brain, chest, abdominal and spinal pathology.

Mammogram

Radiography Services

Mammography is a fine detailed examination of the breasts using a specialised X-Ray unit.,,The unit designed to compress the breast tissue to assist in positioning and reduce the radiation used to create the image. The radiographers performing mammography have had specialised training in the area and the mammography unit has to meet stringent quality controls.

DEXA

Radiography Services

DEXA is a common and accurate test which uses x-rays of two different energy levels to measure and determine bone density. Very low doses of radiation are used. DEXA is used when people have osteoporosis.

Ultrasound

Radiography Services

Ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses very high frequency sound waves to examine the internal organs of the body. These sound waves are transmitted through the body and the waves that are returned to the transducer then form an image on a computer screen. Ultrasound is used widely to examine many parts of the body, including the liver, kidneys, pelvis, blood vessels, shoulders and ankles and is used extensively in pregnancy to examine the baby.

DEXA Body Composition

Radiography Services

DEXA Body Composition works by passing two (dual) very low dose x-ray beams at differing energy levels through the tissues of the body. Fat, muscle and bone each have different attenuating factors, i.e. different levels of absorption due to their unique densities. It is these attenuating factors that allow the DEXA to calculate relative masses of each tissue type.
