An angiogram is a diagnostic test performed in the catheter lab by a specially trained doctor and a team of nurses and technicians.
A biopsy is the removal of sample tissue or cells from your body by a fine needle.
Body composition scans use DEXA (Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry) technology to assess body fat, lean muscle and bone mass.
A bone mineral densitometry (BMD) scan uses low energy X-ray to measure the density of your bones.
Breast MRI is a form of diagnostic imaging using sensitive magnetic fields to create highly detailed pictures of the breast.
An ultrasound is a safe, painless examination that produces images of the inside of the body using sound waves. A breast ultrasound produces pictures of the breast's internal structures.
A CT (computed tomography) scan is a non-invasive test that uses ionising radiation to generate cross-sectional images of the body.
A dental X-ray or OPG (orthopantomogram) looks at the lower half of the face. It shows the upper and lower teeth, surrounding structure and tissues in a long flat line.
A fluoroscopy uses low dose x-ray beams and an image intensifier to produce real-time moving 2D images of internal body parts and physiology.
An X-ray is the most common imaging tool and is used to assess damaged bones, chest infections or diseases, and certain bowel complaints.
Therapeutic injections are often prescribed for patients who have not responded to other therapies - or as a last resort, or provisional treatment, before surgery.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive examination that uses a magnetic field and radiofrequency waves to generate high-resolution images of body organs and soft tissue.
A mammogram is a low dose X-ray examination of the breast/s. Mammography plays an important part in early detection of breast cancer as it can show changes in the breast before you can feel them.
A nuclear medicine study looks at organ function using small amounts of radioactive materials called 'tracers'.
A PET/CT is a scan that shows both the metabolic function of an organ or tissue as well as its structure in a 3D image. This makes detecting even the smallest lesion a lot easier for our Nuclear Medicine Specialist.
Prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and radiofrequency waves to generate high-resolution images of structures within the prostate.
Ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to study the structure and movement of internal organs, tissues and blood vessels.
