ct
Computed tomography (CT) scanning is a safe technology that produces high resolution and three-dimensional images of internal organs of the body. It uses special x-ray equipment and computer technology to image the body from different angles. It is generally use in the detection and staging of cancers, assessment of cardiovascular disorders, trauma and infectious diseases. Nowadays multi-detector CT allows scanning in fast speed in order to minimize radiation exposure to patients, and allows better resolution of internal body structures and high resolution 3D reconstruction.

XRay involves the use of low dose ionizing radiation to produce images insides the body. It is generally used in chest condition to look for cancer and infection. Other applications include urinary calculus disorder, spine and extremities imaging in injury cases.

ultrasound
Ultrasound imaging involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time pictures of the internal. It does not have ionizing radiation. Ultrasound is generally used in abdominal, musculoskeletal, small parts, breast, vascular, cardiology, pediatrics, obstetrics/ gynecology imaging. In addition, our brand new General Electric (GE) Logic S8 ultrasound machine is also equipped with a special diagnostic tool called Elastography, which is used to evaluate tissue stiffness. It can provide additional diagnostic information and is particularly useful in breast imaging.

Mammography uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine the breasts and aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases. It can detect breast mass that may not be palpable clinically, and detect calcifications in the breast which may indicate early cancers. Such calcifications usually cannot be identified by ultrasound examination. Screening mammograms are recommended annually for women who are 40 or older, and those who are at higher risk for breast cancer such as with a positive family history of breast cancers.

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is a procedure that uses a low dose x-ray to measure bone mineral density. By imaging the spine, hip and wrist, the data obtained will be used to diagnose osteoporosis, estimate the risk of bone fracture and to assess response to treatment.
