Radiology and Imaging Services

Overview

We are supported in our diagnostic and imaging needs by ParkwayHealth Radiology, which operates radiology centres within our hospitals, including the Nuclear Medicine and PET Centre at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. Our specialised radiologists and highly trained healthcare professionals work as a cohesive team to provide interpretive diagnostic imaging reports and opinions to assist your doctor in making the best decisions to manage your treatment.

Our Diagnostic Radiology Services

Depending on your symptoms, your doctor will arrange tests that aid in the diagnosis of your condition and to better understand what is going on inside your body. These tests can be conducted using various imaging technologies like x-ray, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, bone mineral densitometry (BMD), angiography, nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET), and can include non-invasive cardiac tests like electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiogram.

Our Therapeutic Radiology Services

Once your condition has been diagnosed, you may be referred back to our radiology centres for treatment. Here we use our imaging technology to assist in drainage procedures and interventional procedures like angioplasty and stenting, as well as yttrium therapy, where your medical condition can be treated with the aid of radiographic equipment rather than with invasive surgery.

Our Screening Services

Our radiology centres may also play a part in your health screening process, where our imaging technology is used to detect medical conditions that do not cause symptoms. Find out more about our radiology services.
