Specialized Scans for Targeted Imaging


The PET/CT Scan is a revolutionary imaging service that combines positron emission tomography (PET) with computed tomography (CT). This dual approach provides not just detailed anatomical pictures but also metabolic information, making it extremely useful in the detection and management of cancer.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a unique imaging technique that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, evaluate, and treat various conditions, including many types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and neurological disorders.


X-ray/Fluoroscopy allows for real-time imaging of the body's structures, including bones, lungs, and vessels, making it indispensable in both diagnosis and during certain treatment procedures.

Dedicated Scans for Comprehensive Assessment

Bone Densitometry

Bone Densitometry, also known as DEXA, is a specialized scan used to measure bone mineral density. It's an essential tool in diagnosing osteoporosis and assessing an individual’s risk for fractures.


Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling, and infection in the body’s internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women.

Low Dose CT Scan

Our Low Dose CT Scan service uses minimal radiation to create detailed images of your body, ideal for health screenings and diagnostic purposes, such as detecting lung cancer.
