“Quality Service when you need it the Most”
X-Ray imaging is a common initial imaging modality used by practitioners, to obtain valuable information about your body.
We offer virtually any X ray imaging study required in modern medicine.
Coronary CTA, conducted at our Arwyp, Olivedale and Unitas branches is obtained with a multislice CT scan to create a CT angiogram of the coronary arteries. This modern non-invasive test is used to determine whether obstructive plaques have built up in the coronary arteries. Obstruction of the coronaries could lead to a heart attack.
We offer a wide range of MRI studies at our practices, including high-end neuroimaging, spinal imaging, pelvic imaging, prostate imaging, hepatobiliary imaging and musculoskeletal imaging.
CT and MRI have complimentary, and very specific roles, in imaging of the body. Your doctor will know which of these techniques would be best suited for you.
The intervention department at the Unitas Hospital in Centurion, Pretoria, specializes in neuro interventional radiology as well as general intervention.
The specialist radiology team consists of two radiologists, Dr Francois Potgieter and Dr Stefan Steyn.
The team also consists of specialized nursing and radiography staff who work exclusively in the intervention department.
Procedures are done in our specialized theatre with a state of the art Philips Allura Clarity Biplane neuro intervention suite. This equipment is designed to offer high quality images at a fraction of the radiation dose when compared to previous models.
Scan for Health
Scan for Health
We offer several options:
Cardiac assessment : the coronary vessels can be assessed to determine your cardiac vessel health status if there are known risk factors such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, or a family history of heart disease.
Brain assessment : A variety of options are available.
Male health assessment
Woman’s health assessment : for instance where there is a significant family history of breast cancer
Low dose lung CT: where applicable with relevant risk factors such as long term smoking history
Bone density assessment : low bone density poses the risk of fractures. The national osteoporosis foundation of South Africa ( NOFSA) has published guidelines for testing, available on their website
Body fat percentage: Very accurate assessment can be performed
The examination can be tailored to your needs.
