SCANS
MRI Scan

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic scanning technique based on the principles of magnetic resonance. MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio frequency waves to produce detailed images of the internal organs and tissues. It can be used to investigate almost any part of the body and is most commonly used to examine the brain, joints and discs in the spine. No radiation is involved in an MRI scan.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging (or sonography) is a method of acquiring information about the inside of the body using high frequency sound waves to show the size, shape and texture of the internal organs and blood vessels. Ultrasound waves cannot pass through gas so the stomach or bowel cannot be evaluated. Affidea specialises in diagnostic ultrasounds.

CT Scan

Computed Tomography (CT) is a scanning technique that uses X-Rays to take highly detailed images of the body. A CT scan can give detailed information about many parts of the body, including the lungs, bones, soft tissues, heart and blood vessels. It can be used to diagnose and monitor many conditions.

OPG Scan

An orthopantomogram (OPG) is an advanced type of dental X-ray that provides a panoramic view of the upper and lower jaw, all of your teeth and the joints between your jaw and skull. Dentists use OPGs for information on impacted wisdom teeth, finding the source of dental pain, and assessment for the placement of dental implants.
