An X-ray (radiograph) is a technique that uses low dose radiation to create pictures of bones and other internal tissues such as your lungs and bowel.
Computerised Tomography (CT) uses an X-ray machine and advanced computer programs to create two and three dimensional images of your body.
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. MRI scans use a strong magnetic field and radiofrequency pulses to create high resolution images of selected anatomy and any relevant pathology or injury present with exquisite and precise detail.
An Ultrasound scan uses high frequency sound waves to create pictures of soft tissues (eg. muscles, tendons, glands) and organs inside the body (eg. kidneys, liver).
Bone mineral densitometry is a scan which uses low energy X-rays to measure the density of your bone. It is used to diagnose osteoporosis and assess your fracture risk.
An OPG (or orthopantomogram) is a rotational panoramic dental X-ray that allows the dentist to view the upper and lower jaws. It is a 2-dimensional representation of these.
Cardiac Calcium Score
CT Cardiac Calcium score is a non-invasive test used to provide an estimation of the amount of coronary artery plaque a patient may have by identifying the extent of calcified coronary artery plaque using a CT scanner.
CT Virtual Colonoscopy
CT Colonoscopy uses CT scanning to look at the wall of your colon (large bowel).

Non Invasive Vascular Imaging
A Doppler ultrasound test uses reflected sound waves to see how blood flows through a blood vessel. It helps doctors evaluate blood flow through major arteries and veins, such as those of the arms, legs, and neck.
Oncology & Cancer Imaging
A fine needle aspiration (FNA) is used when more information is required about the significance of a lump or group of lumps within an area identified by a previous radiological examination.
