X-rays are ionising radiation, generated by an X-ray tube.   The rays are controlled by shielding down a narrow beam, directed towards the part of the body being examined. On the opposite side of the body, an x-ray film is positioned in the path of the x-rays, and is "exposed".   The X-ray film is then processed and an image generated. Where the X-ray passes through the body easily, that part of the film...

Ultrasound does not use ionising radiation so is considered very safe.   To acquire the images water-based gel is applied to your skin and then a hand-held ultrasound transducer is moved over the area of interest.   The ultrasound examination is performed by our highly trained Sonographers who then forward the images to our specialist doctors. The Radiologist then prepares a report for your referring practitioner.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Preparation" tab_id="1515627639848-2e7cdc77-ce81"][vc_column_text] Diagnostic Ultrasound examinations often have specific...

Your dentist/oral surgeon may also require information on bone growth when planning surgical procedures for younger people.   The basic tools of dental imaging are the OPG (Orthopantomogram) and Cephalometry. These x-rays require specialised x-ray machines. An OPG (“orthopantomogram”) gives a panoramic view of the mouth, giving information on the teeth and the bones of the upper and lower jaw. Cephalometry is used to obtain measurements and determine...

Both soft tissues (eg brain, liver, kidneys, lungs) and bone can be seen. The images are cross-sections of the body, but the CT computer can generate a great variety of images, depending on what the doctor is looking for.   For more detailed information on CT examinations click on the tabs or research the Inside Radiology Industry website here.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Types of scans" tab_id="1515565347938-81bb742f-33a7"][vc_column_text]CT Scans are commonly requested for the following areas of the body Head,...
