Tests & Scans

We provide a range of tests and scans to help understand your health condition and whether your treatment plan is improving your health. 

Scans involve taking pictures of your body to assess or treat your health condition. Examples are X-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy and Angiography. Scans may also involve injecting dyes to see how your organs are working. An examples is Positron Emission Tomography (PET).

Pathology involves examining your blood, body fluids or tissues.

Diagnostic procedures are small operations that enable your doctor to make a diagnosis of your condition. An example is Endoscopy which involves using small cameras to look inside your gastrointestinal tract and assess or treat problems with your oesophagus, stomach, or bowel.
