Dental Imaging

Dental scans may be recommended by your dentist or doctor 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.
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) is a panoramic X-Ray taken of the upper & lower jaw, teeth, and maxillary sinus. The OPG unit will rotate around the head, creating a two-dimensional image from ear to ear.
A Lateral Cephalogram uses precise positioning to scan the side of the face. This allows specialists and physicians to determine the relationship between the maxilla and mandible in order to assess a patient’s bite.

Digital X-Rays

An X-Ray is a type of digital image produced through the absorption of radiation. Different parts of the body absorb the x-rays in varying amounts, producing a clear digital image. Most of the radiation is absorbed by bone due to its higher density, followed by organs and softer tissues.

The final digital image will show organs in shades of grey while bone will appear white.

The radiographer may ask a patient to sit or stand in certain positions in order to take the best scan. The scan itself will only take a few minutes for each part of the body.

CT Scans

Commonly used to assess certain parts of the body or to diagnose potential trauma, CT scans involve a series of scans taken using low-doses of radiation. Images are taken in thin sections throughout a CT scan (computed tomography), similar to taking slices from a loaf of bread. These ‘slices’ are then collated and reconstructed by a computer into a detailed cross-sectional view, showing the internal structure of the body.

Ultrasounds

An ultrasound is a non-invasive scan taken using inaudible sound waves. Through these sound waves, emitted and detected using a hand-held device called a transducer, a sonographer can ‘see’ inside the body.

The transducer is moved across the skin using a sliding and rotating motion, with contact gel applied to ensure a clear image. The most common procedures focus on the abdomen and pelvis, with scans taking between 20 to 30 minutes.

MRIs

Magnetic resonance imaging uses a combination of a powerful magnetic field and radio pulses to capture images of the body. Our MRI machine, based at our Campbelltown clinic, consists of a circular scanner with an open-ended tunnel passing through it and a padded table for the patient to lie on.

This table will slide into the tunnel while the scan is in progress, to ensure the body part being assessed is in the centre of the magnetic field. As the machine can be quite loud when in use, headphones/earphones will be provided to reduce the volume to safe levels.
