Ultrasound

Ultrasound / Doppler


Ultrasound imaging (sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to view inside the body. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can also show movement of the body's internal organs as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels. Unlike X-ray imaging, there is no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound imaging.

In an ultrasound exam, a transducer (probe) is placed directly on the skin or inside a body opening. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to provide an optimal layer so that the ultrasound waves are transmitted from the transducer through the gel into the body.

The reflective sound waves coming back from the anatomic structure under investigation are the electronically translated to form an image of the structure. The image can then be evaluated by a sonographer and a radiologist to look for disease.

Xray

Xray

X-rays are a type of high-energy radiation. An X-ray machine can produce short bursts of X-rays. The rays pass easily through fluids and soft tissues of the body. However, dense tissue such as bone will block some of the X-rays.An ordinary X-ray is a relatively quick to perform. It may be all that is needed to diagnose or assess various problems.

More sophisticated 'contrast' X-rays, CT scans, or other imaging techniques may be needed for accurate or further assessment of certain body parts, particularly of soft tissues and organs such as the brain or liver.

Cone Beam CT

Cone Beam Computerized Tomography

The 3D Cone Beam Imaging system is basically a digital x-ray scanner mounted on a rotating arm. (Like a digital camera, it uses digital technology to record images instead of old-fashioned film.) It’s called "Cone Beam" because the scanner projects x-rays in a carefully controlled, cone-shaped beam.

You simply sit in a chair while the scanner moves in one complete circle around your head, gathering all the scan data needed. There’s no special preparation necessary.

With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images, also called views. CT scans and cone beam CT both produce high-quality images During a cone beam CT examination, the C-arm or gantry rotates around the head in a complete 360-degree rotation while capturing multiple images from different angles that are reconstructed to create a single 3-D image.

This new technology provides more complete visual information to study your face from every angle.

CT

Computerized Tomography Scan

Computed Tomography, more commonly known as a CT or CAT scan, is a diagnostic medical test that, like traditional x-rays, produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body.

The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images. These images can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to a CD or DVD.

CT images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels typically provide greater detail than traditional x-rays, particularly of soft tissues and blood vessels.

Using specialized equipment Dedicated images of your body are created which are then interpreted by trained Radiologists.

Injections

Imaging Guided Procedures / Steroid Injections

These are interventional procedures done on patients with the help of imaging. Numerous such procedures are done in our department by qualified radiologists. They include Barium studies, biopsies, fluid aspiration from the body or cavities / abscess draining, steroid injections, nerve blocks etc.

A biopsy is the removal of tissue in order to examine it for disease. The tissue samples can be taken from any part of the body. Biopsies are performed in several different ways. Some biopsies involve removing a small amount of tissue with a needle while others involve surgically removing an entire lump or nodule that is suspicious.

Often, the tissue is removed by placing a needle through the skin (percutaneously) to the area of abnormality. Biopsies can be safely performed with imaging guidance such as ultrasound, X-ray, or CT. Imaging is used to determine exactly where to place the needle and perform the biopsy.

An abscess is an infected fluid collection within the body. As long as it is deemed safe, percutaneous abscess drainage offers a minimally invasive therapy that can be used to treat the abscess.

PRP

PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) INJECTION THERAPY

PRP injection therapy harnesses the healing properties of blood in order to reliably treat pain arising from tendons, ligaments, joints and muscles. It is also showing good results for mild to moderate osteoarthritis. Typically 2 or more injections are required, separated 6weeks apart. While this approach has been used overseas for many years, it is fairly new to Australia.

Patient Welfare

Patient Welfare Service

Broadly relates to any logical and morally acceptable steps taken in the best interest of the patient, medically, financially, or a patient's privacy.

In our practice ethical application of moral code to carry out radiological investigation is of prime importance. Patients are treated as an individual, adopting important principles of care, while adapting to meet the needs of the patient.

We treat our patients with dignity and respect, tailoring to the needs of the individual patient irrespective of age, sexuality, ethnicity, religious beliefs or politics.

At Bunbury Medical Imaging we place an emphasis on teamwork to enhance the value of services being provided by making the patient and the attendant comfortable and familiar with the imaging environment around our patients.
