Modalities

Fluoroscopy

modalities-graphic Fluoroscopy provides static and moving x-ray imaging for both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, often with the use of contrast agents. This allows real-time interactive assessment, as well as accurate needle, wire or tube positioning.
  • Barium Swallow
  • Micturating Cysturethrogram (MCU)
  • Nephrostogram
  • Joint injection
  • Shoulder Hydrodilatation
  • Barium follow through
  • Barium enema
  • Hysterosalpingogram (fertility)
  • Urethrogram

  • Sialogram (salivary)
  • Macrodacrocystogram (lacrimal)
  • Gastrograffin studies

Available at Box Hill Hospital, Maroondah Hospital, Angliss Hospital

Nuclear Medicine

modalities-graphic Nuclear medicine utilises radioisotopes bound to specific compounds which are introduced into the body. External detectors then provide an image based on the distribution of these structures within the patient, often referred to as physiological imaging. In combination with the resolution of multislice CT (SPECT CT), nuclear medicine is being even further advanced.
