We use radiological procedures for looking at the internal structures of the body, whether bone or soft tissue.

Usually these examinations are carried out to:

  • diagnose disease states, such as cancer or heart disease
  • show the extent of injury to body structures
  • to aid in interventional procedures, such as angiography.

Our radiologists may use different methods such as, X-ray, Computer Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound as well as some other specialised types of radiological imaging.
