The suite comprises:
An ultrasound image is produced by a machine that sends high frequency sound waves through the body and then records the echoes (sound waves) that return. The returning echoes are recorded by a computer and displayed on a screen. Ultrasound is an incredibly versatile imaging modality that is commonly used for almost any soft tissue area in the body.
We are delighted to introduce our revolutionary NEW High Performance Ultrasound scanner, with its exceptional resolution, it aids fast and accurate diagnosis. We can offer faster appointment times and find diagnostic solutions quickly all in one scan. With the most modern technology available you can reassured of reliable and accurate results.
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. A magnet combined with completely safe radio waves allows internal pictures to be generated by exciting part of the water molecules inside our body.
MRI is entirely painless and non-invasive. It involves no x-rays or other types of radiation. There are no known side effects. However, you cannot have an MRI if you have certain types of metal in your body. Modern joint replacements are made of titanium, which are safe, but we will check that you are suitable for a scan by running through safety questions.
The MRI scan images produced are incredibly detailed and useful to a clinician with the possibility to scan almost every body part. We offer high quality MRI scans and excellent service.
A CT scan (sometimes called CAT scan) is a painless x-ray test that helps clinicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. CT imaging uses special x-ray equipment to produce a number of images of the inside of the body. A computer then processes them to produce cross-sectional pictures of the area being studied. CT scans provide greater clarity than conventional x-ray exams and allow doctors to see organs and soft tissues as well as bones.
Our new CT Scanner
We are pleased to offer a brand new state-of-the-art Toshiba CT scanner providing faster and more efficient scanning with lower doses of radiation.
An x-ray is a simple and painless test that takes detailed pictures of the internal structures of your body. X-rays are a form of radiation energy able to pass through human tissue.
The x-ray machine uses a tube to produce an x-ray beam which is carefully aimed onto the part of the body being examined. Denser material like the bones absorb more of this beam and therefore show up as white on the screen. The softer material, like organs, shows up much darker. All images are created digitally.
The length of time depends on the areas to be x-rayed, please give yourself plenty of time for your appointment.
DEXA Scanning (DXA)
Dexa is short for dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. DEXA scanning is used by doctors to test bone density, an important factor when it comes to diagnosing osteoporosis and assessing bone health.
