Ultrasound scans are used to evaluate fetal development, and they can detect problems in the liver, heart, kidney, or abdomen. They may also assist in performing certain types of biopsy.
The ultrasound scans are conducted by the Consultant Radiologist Doctors and appointments for scans can be reserved through the following link.
Pregnancy Ultrasound Scanning
A pregnancy ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to image the developing baby as well as the mother’s reproductive organs. The average number of ultrasounds varies with each pregnancy.
An echocardiogram, or "echo", is a scan used to look at the heart and nearby blood vessels. It's a type of ultrasound scan, which means a small probe is used to send out high-frequency sound waves that create echoes when they bounce off different parts of the body.
Digital CR X-Ray Screening
Digital CR X-Ray is a form of radiography that uses x-ray–sensitive plates to directly capture data during the patient examination, immediately transferring it to a computer system without the use of an intermediate cassette.
The advantages of it are time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Exercise ECG Scanning
Exercise Electrocardiogram is a screening tool used to evaluate the effect of exercise on your heart and lungs as some heart issues only become apparent during exercise. This test utilizes a treadmill to produce results that can be tracked and measured.
Endoscopy Scanning is a next generation technology that uses a flexible, small peripheral or coronary catheter to provide wide-field, high-quality, full-color, laser-based video imaging.
It is conducted by a consultant doctor and a range of endoscopy scans are available at our hospital as follows which examines different parts of the body.
