MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to diagnose conditions that affect tissue and bone in any part of the body. The patient lies inside the scanner – a large tube – while the scan takes place.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound scan builds up a picture of part of the inside of the body using sound waves that cannot be detected by a human ear. A small, hand-held sensor is pressed carefully against the skin surface above the area to be viewed.

X-ray

X-rays are used by medical professionals to image various parts of the human body to aid diagnosis. Diagnostic X-rays are a controlled form of radiation which are able to pass through the body recording an image on a light-sensitive detector or computer screen.

 


Diagnostic imaging is available at the following hospitals and surgical centres:
