Every day physicians refer their patients to us in anticipation of high-quality medical imaging, radiology procedures and diagnoses – all of which are critical in determining the care and treatment their patients will receive.
Aiding them and you, would be our use of only the most advanced imaging equipment, led by our specialised physicians and highly-trained, patient-focused associates.
A comprehensive diagnosis of the condition you may be suffering from is the crucial first step to ensure that you’re on your way to receive the optimum medical treatments from our specialists. We offer a varied range of radiographic services such as:
This is a cutting-edge diagnostic study that utilises a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce very sharp images of your entire body.
The scans typically take 20 – 60 minutes per examination. Our Philips Ingenia 1.5T Omega with the big bore concept lets you undergo the scanning procedure with comfort.
For added assurance, we also have MRI-safe HDTV and audio entertainment sets to keep you relaxed during the scan.
The devices/conditions below are prohibited. If you have any doubts or questions, be sure to consult our physician or MRI staff.
This is a quick and painless diagnostic examination that combines the use of x-rays and super computers. CT scans allow the radiologist to see the position, nature and extent of many different diseases or abnormalities inside your body using 3D visualisation.
Our centre uses the compact and user-friendly Siemens SOMATOM Perspective 128-slice CT scanners, capable of generating data and details quickly and accurately.
CT scanning of the chest provides very detailed images of many types of tissues as well as the lungs, bones and blood vessels. It is currently used for detecting lung cancer in early stages. By using advanced tools, we are able to reduce the dose of radiation by up to 30% compared to regular CT scan of the chest.
It is painless, non-invasive and accurate. Rate of sensitivity and accuracy are up to 80% – 90%.
Most colon cancers develop from abnormal growths in the colon, called polyps. If they grow unnoticed and are not removed in time, they may become cancerous cells. CT colonoscopy is an advanced method to screen for colon cancer and polyps in a non-invasive way which is safer and is more comfortable for patients.
As such, CT colonoscopy is recommended for average-risk individuals who are at least 50 years of age.
Digital mammography is the examination of the breast using x-rays and is among the most effective tools for early breast cancer detection. Mammography can detect changes in the breasts up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Via application of Tomography techniques, we are able to slice the images with less compression needed, therefore improving your experience in undergoing the procedure. It will also aid the doctor in advising if you’ll need to follow a scheduled or annual check-up.
Mammogram is ideal for those aged 40 and above. Those younger would benefit from an ultrasound breast scanning.
Ultrasound/Sonography is a machine which uses sound waves to create images of internal organs. Since the images are captured in real time, they can show movements like blood flow, heart beats and baby movements. Ultrasound is used widely to detect and diagnose lesions/diseases and it is widely favoured as it does not emit radiation or side effects.
Our Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound machine goes beyond diagnosing the shape and type of the lesions to also help us determine the detail criteria of the disease in terms of hardness, areas and staging.
A bone density test is used to measure bone mineral content and density of the spine, lower arm and hip, in order to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis. These results will indicate if there’s a decrease in bone mass, i.e. if bones have become more brittle and likely to fracture easily.
The test is done via several modes: either using x-rays, a scan that uses computer software or dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), with the latter being the ‘gold standard’ for accuracy.
This is the most frequently used form of medical imaging prior to treatment. Our digital radiography system can produce diagnostic images of the human body on a computer screen and store them as digital images for future references.
C-Arm machine is an advanced medical imaging device with x-ray technology and it comes equipped with both fluoroscopy and radiography capabilities. It is commonly used in orthopaedic, urology and gastroenterology surgeries.
As a highly-flexible mobile system, it allows specialists to take images of your whole body from different angles, making it particularly useful in complicated surgical, pain management and emergency procedures, as well as cardiac, angiography and therapeutic studies.
This is the most common treatment for kidney stones. It is a non-surgical technique that uses high-energy shock waves targeted at kidney stones, causing them to fragment or break into tiny pieces.
These fragments or ‘stone dusts’ are small enough to pass in urine. If there are larger pieces remaining, we can perform an invasive treatment.
Imaging can be done outside the radiology department using mobile x-ray equipment that can be wheeled to your bedside when necessary. This would be crucial when efforts to transfer a patient to the radiology department can compromise their safety.
Mobile radiography is essential in special care units such as intensive care, coronary care, cardiac surgery, special care for babies, accident and emergency department and post-anaesthesia care units.
Image-guided minimally-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures have greatly improved the study of deep-seated lesions, treatment of abscesses and fluid collections. Guided interventional procedures are even more effective now with the use of fluoroscopy, CT scanner, ultrasound and mammography.
This procedure will be decided by a primary doctor and interventional radiologist upon collecting and assessing patient data and history. Be sure to share details on medical issues with our doctors to avoid complications during the procedure.
