Radiology Services

Including diagnostic services such as x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, CT angiography, MRI, mammography, bone scan, thyroid scan and PET scan. Also including interventional radiology, breast radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology specialists.

Diagnostic Radiology

The most common types of diagnostic radiology include: X-rays; ultrasound; computed tomography (CT), also known as computerised axial tomography (CAT scan); CT angiography (examining the heart and associated blood vessels); magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); magnetic resonance angiography (MRA); mammography (examining breasts); nuclear medicine (with such tests as a bone scan, thyroid scan, and thallium cardiac stress test); and positron emission tomography (PET scan).

Interventional Radiology

Interventional Radiology is a medical sub-specialty of Radiology which utilizes minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system. Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists.

Radiation Oncology

The medical care and management of patients with cancer and other medical conditions through the conduct and supervision of radiation treatment, advice and provision of palliative care.


Oncologists may specialise in specific types of cancer such as lung cancer, breast cancer, and so on. Paediatric oncology specialises in the treatment of children with cancer and incorporates all three primary oncology disciplines – medical oncology (treatment of cancer with drug therapy, chemotherapy), surgical oncology (biopsy and removal), radiation oncology (treatment with radiotherapy).


Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs, structures and systems within many areas of the body. Ultrasound imaging, referred to as ultrasonography, allows an examination of soft tissues and body cavities, without using invasive techniques.


An angiography is a diagnostic procedure to determine information on blocked or narrowed blood vessels. The resulting images of the vessels is known as an angiogram. A specialised radiologist performs the procedure whilst a radiographer operates the x-ray machine. If the angiography is being performed prior to an angioplasty, a vascular surgeon may carry out the procedure.
