CT SCAN

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.

X-RAYS

The German scientist Wilhelm Röntgen named X-radiation to signify an unknown type of radiation (1895)

Projectional radiography produces two-dimensional images by x-ray radiation. The image acquisition is generally performed by radiographers, and the images are then examined by radiologists

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.

DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound examinations are done by our qualified sonographers

MAMMOGRAPHY AND WOMEN'S HEALTH

The Radiology Group ultrasound

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 tendonsmuscles, 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.

Special focus on women's health

Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays to examine the human breast for diagnosis and screening.

The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses or microcalcifications.

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.
