Welcome to Our Practice
We are proud to be one of the newest radiology practices in Pretoria.
After taking over two radiology departments from one of the biggest and most successful radiology practices in Pretoria, we are looking forward, with our aim to provide the best possible service to our patients and doctors both within the hospital and from our referral area.
We want to provide the best possible support to our hospitals in order for them to give a world class service to patients. By letting the hospitals grow, this will in turn give us the opportunity to also grow in our scope and practice.
We recently added cardiac CT and virtual (CT) colonoscopy to our already inclusive practice.
We also focus on mammography and women's health at both hospitals. We are equipped for Vacuum breast biopsies.

X-rays and computers combine forces to make your diagnosis
A CT scan, also known as a computed tomography scan, makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.
We recently added cardiac imaging (CT) and virtual (CT) colonoscopy to our service.
The German scientist Wilhelm Röntgen named X-radiation to signify an unknown type of radiation (1895)
Plain radiography can also refer to radiography without a radiocontrast agent or radiography that generates single static images, as contrasted to fluoroscopy, which are technically also projectional.
Ultrasound examinations are done by our qualified sonographers
Medical ultrasound (also known as diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs.
Its aim is often to find a source of a disease or to exclude any pathology. It can also be used as guidance for biopsies of lesions and for injections and infiltrations.
Cardiac ultrasound is also done as part of our service.
MAMMOGRAPHY AND WOMEN'S HEALTH

BONE DENSITY MEASUREMENT
Diagnosis and follow up of osteoporosis
A bone mineral density (BMD) test provides a snapshot of your bone health. The test can identify osteoporosis, determine your risk for fractures (broken bones), and measure your response to osteoporosis treatment.
The most widely recognized BMD test is called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DXA. It is painless—a bit like having an x-ray. The test can measure bone density at your hip, forearm and spine.
Quantitative CT scan (QCT) measurement of bone density is another method used to evaluate bone mineral density.
