Radiology



Radiology is a branch of medicine that involves scanning images of the body with or without the use of radiation. The function of our Radiology department is to provide the patient and referring clinician with a quality diagnostic imaging service in a safe and friendly environment.

Our Radiology department works closely with other departments to help create a clearer picture for diagnosis and other medical purposes. Our radiologists are highly trained medical specialists capable of operating various scanning machines in a safe environment.

Services include:
  • General Radiography
  • Contrast Studies
    X-ray of stomach, small intestine or colon following either oral or rectal radio-opaque solution
  • Urography
    X-ray of a part of the urinary tract after injection with radio-opaque solution
  • Cystography
    X-ray of bladder following instillation of radio-opaque solution by catheter
  • Urodynamics
    The rocedure is similar to Cystoscopy (above) with additional rectal catheter – functional study with measurement of pressure gradients in bladder and rectum
  • Ultrasound
    Scanning of areas of the body, using high frequency sound waves, without radiation
  • Nuclear Medicine
    Scanning of specific areas of body following injection of radio-isotope material
  • Computerised Tomography (CT) Imaging
    Cross sectional head and body scanning using either pulsed or continuous radiation
  • Procedures such as biopsy, abscess drainage etc. performed by the radiologist
