From the simple yet highly useful chest x-ray to the recent advances in cardiac CT and MRI, we can provide expert imaging of the chest to suit your needs. Chest radiology can help to determine what might be causing lung symptoms, such as shortness of breath or chest pain or to diagnose conditions of the lung, including pneumonia and fluid around the lungs.
A chest CT scan may be required following an abnormal result from an earlier chest X-ray. Tumours as small as 2mm can be picked up by a CT scan, and is now being used as a screening tool for lung cancer.
Cardiac CT is increasingly used in the routine and the emergency setting as an alternative to conventional catheter angiography in order to determine the cause of heart attacks (myocardial infarction) and plan treatment. Please note that due to the technical requirements of these scans, they are only offered at certain centres, please contact us for further information.
