Computed Tomography (CT)

We have an on-site CT scanner. CT is an advanced imaging method that uses x-rays to produce multiple thin image slices of the body. After the scan has been performed the images can be manipulated using computer programs that can restack and recut the slices in any direction, or even produce three-dimensional pictures, without resorting to invasive exploratory surgery. We principally use CT to help to diagnose joint and spinal problems.

The immediate availability of three-dimensional imaging can be critical to the successful management of many serious problems and such images are also very useful in planning surgery for complex fractures and limb deformities.


We have high-end ultrasound imaging facilities on site. This allows real-time imaging of the thorax and abdomen.


We have a high-definition Fuji Prima II CR system radiography system.
