Imaging can be used as a tool for examining diseases and monitoring treatment.
The most common examination is a basic x-ray, which is the typical x-ray examination. In addition, imaging examinations include ultrasound, computerised tomography, MRI, mammography, vascular and fluoroscopy examinations. At a doctor's request, the radiologist may also perform various procedures and take samples.
Physiological studies include exercise tests and lung function measurements. Neurophysiological examinations are done for epilepsy (EEG), sleep disorders and nerve damage.
You need a doctor's referral for imaging examinations.
Your doctor, or in some cases a nurse, will give you information on your examination results.
The images and a radiologist's written report are saved electronically in your patient records, at which point they are available to your doctor for diagnosis and for planning your treatment.
Appointments for examinations are made in the unit where you are receiving treatment, or you can book appointments for a basic x-ray examination by telephone.
The imaging centre performs studies in different departments for clinical radiology, clinical physiology and nuclear medicine, clinical neurophysiology and clinical pathology.
