Burger Radiologists is a diagnostic imaging practice providing professional services to 10 Gauteng medical sites.
Burger Radiologists was established by its founder, Dr Faan Burger, when he opened his first practice in 1986.
Burger Radiologists is staffed by general diagnostic Radiologists with various special interests, in the different subspecialities of modern Radiology, including:
- 3 Radiologists with additional diagnostic neuroradiology qualifications from the European Society of Neuroradiology.
- 3 Neurointerventional Radiologists at the Unitas Interventional suite.
- Our Radiologists also have expertise in musculoskeletal imaging, mammography, prostate imaging and various other fields.
“Quality Service when you need it the Most”
We offer a vast array of services at 10 Medical Sites in Gauteng. Click on the link below for more information.
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.
A computerised tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do.
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.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.
We offer a wide range of MRI studies at our practices, including high end neuroimaging, spinal imaging, pelvic imaging, prostate imaging, hepatobilary imaging and musculoskeletal imaging.
CT and MRI have complementary, and very specific roles, in imaging of the body. Your doctor will know which of these techniques would be best suited for you.
Our Digital Mammography systems raise the standard of breast care in our community and allows our physicians to detect and diagnose breast cancer earlier and more precisely. Digital Mammography is superior to plain film mammography in detection of abnormalities. We offer breast tomography and vacuum assisted core biopsy services.
Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography, is another way to create images of specific organs and structures. Ultrasound images are captured in real- time showing structure and movement of the body’s internal organs. We perform a wide range of sonographic examinations, ranging from abdominal studies, to musculoskeletal and vascular imaging.
Bone densitometry (DEXA) (dual-energy-x-ray-absorptiometry) is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. DEXA is used to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition that more often affects women after menopause but may also be found in men. Osteoporosis involves a gradual loss of calcium, causing the bones to become thinner, more fragile and more likely to break. A DEXA test can be used to assess a patient’s risk for developing fractures, and determine if preventative treatment is needed.
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 three radiologists, Dr Francois Potgieter, Dr Arthur Winter 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.
Imaging of children is always a special privilege. We pay special attention to the needs of our small patients. Limiting of Radiation dose is prioritized during imaging studies as much as possible. We perform a wide range of imaging studies including X-Rays, Ultrasound, Flouroscopy studies, CT imaging, MRI imaging and Interventional Radiology examinations.
