Procedures & Injections

South West Radiology offers a selection of bulk-billed injections and biopsy procedures to aid in both pain relief and diagnoses. Our specialists can perform image-guided biopsies, core biopsies, spinal injections, and musculoskeletal injections.

CT Scans

Tailored to the needs and requirements of each patient, a CT scan consists of images taken using low-dose x-rays. These images are taken in thin ‘slices’, similar to a loaf of bread, which are then reconstructed into a detailed cross-section by a computer. This allows specialists and physicians to assess internal structures including bone, soft tissues, and blood vessels.

CT scans are used for numerous purposes including:

1) Assessing certain parts of the body
2) Assisting in surgery planning
3) Diagnosing injury, trauma, or disease

Ultrasounds

Commonly used to scan the abdominal and pelvic regions, ultrasounds produce inaudible sound waves to ‘see’ inside the patient’s body. These sound waves are generated by a hand-held device called a transducer, which is moved across the skin with a rotating and sliding action.

Ultrasounds are painless, non-invasive, and do not involve radiation, making them ideal for both adults and children. Our highly-trained sonographers can perform Obstetric ultrasounds to assess the progress of pregnancies and the health of unborn children.

Dental Scans

Dental scans may be recommended in order to identify and isolate potential infections, dislocations, and fractures. They may also be requested to aid in planning related surgeries. South West Radiology offers two types of dental imaging: Orthopantomograms and Lateral Cephalograms.

Lateral Cephalograms use precise positioning to scan the side of the face, in order to determine the relationship between the upper and lower jaw. Using this scan, dentists and physicians can assess any issues related to a patient’s bite.

Orthopantomograms are a wide dental X-Ray which focuses on the maxillary sinus, teeth, upper jaw, and lower jaw. OPGs use a specialised machine which rotates around the head, producing a two-dimensional image from ear to ear. The scan takes approximately 15 seconds to complete.

X-Rays

An X-Ray, also known as a radiograph, is a digital image created using absorbed radiation. As x-rays are passed through the body, dense tissues absorb a higher proportion of radiation compared to softer tissues. As a result, bone appears white on the final image while organs and other soft tissues are grey.
