PATIENT SERVICES   

MRI

 
Coastal Medical Imaging provides a state-of-the-art Siemens shortbore MRI suite designed for patientcomfort and anxiety reduction
   

XRAY

 
Digital x-ray is performed on our GE Briva "True Digital" X-ray machine. Virtually instantaneous images are obtained at the lowest radiation dose possible.
   

ULTRASOUND

 
We utilise the state-of-the-art GE LE9 ultrasound machine. This provides superior image quality and 3-D musculoskeletal ultrasound capability.
   

CT SCAN

 
CT scanning is performed on our GE Brightspeed 16 slice CT scanner. The GE Brightspeed 16 slice CT scanner provides the lowest dose possible. Special protocols were developed in consultation with GE to reduce radiation dose even further.
   

PAIN CONSULTATION

 
Coastal Medical Imaging provides a pain assessment and intervention service for joint pain, spinal pain, low back pain and cutaneous neuropathies.
   

BONE MINERAL DENSITY/BODY COMPOSTION (DEXA)

 
A BMD is a simple scan that measures the density of your bones, usually at the hip and spine. BMD uses a DEXA scanner (Dual Energy X-ray Absorption) DEXA works by passing two very low dose x-ray beams at differing energy levels through the bones. Bones with different densities will absorb the x-rays differently, allowing computer calculations of the relative densities.
