The department is composed of three sections, with services that cover different examinations and procedures:
- Examination of the body producing digital x-ray images.
- Also includes Mammography (examination of the breasts) which is used for breast cancer screening. It is an important tool for early detection of breast cancer and assists in decreasing breast cancer deaths. With the latest in digital mammography, there is less radiation exposure with faster and more accurate results.
- A diagnostic modality that makes use of sound waves of extremely high frequency. The echoes from these sound waves are used to form electronic images of the structures inside the body.
- It is radiation-free and is considered safe for pregnant women.
- CT Scan (Computed Tomography Scan)
- A diagnostic tool that uses x-rays for finer visualization of internal body structures.. These images are integrated with the help of a computer to give detailed images of the studied area.. The new 256 – Slice Dual Source Definition Flash scans faster, using only a fraction of the radiation dose compared to previous scanners. It can performCoronary CT angiography for detection of blockage within the blood vessels supplying the heart. The heart can be scanned using only 1 millisievert (mSv) while the average dose patients receive for this procedure averages at 8 mSv to 20 mSv (the average person is annually exposed to 3 mSv from natural radioation).
