Our Diagnostic Services

01MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

Our MRI services provide detailed images of soft tissues, bones, and joints, aiding in the diagnosis of various orthopaedic conditions. This non-invasive technique allows for precise evaluation and personalised treatment planning.

02CT (Computed Tomography) scans

Utilising cutting-edge CT scans, we obtain detailed cross-sectional images to assess bone structures, identify fractures, and guide surgical planning. This advanced imaging technology enhances diagnostic accuracy.


Traditional yet essential, x-rays remain a fundamental tool in orthopaedic diagnostics. They provide clear images of bones, helping identify fractures, deformities, and joint issues.

04Ultrasound Imaging

Our ultrasound services offer real-time imaging of soft tissues and joints, aiding in the assessment of conditions such as tendon injuries, bursitis, and ligament issues. This dynamic imaging technique enhances diagnostic precision.

05Bone Scans

Bone scans are valuable in detecting abnormalities in bone metabolism. They are particularly useful in identifying areas of increased bone activity, helping diagnose conditions like fractures, infections, or bone tumours.

06DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry)

DEXA scans are employed for assessing bone mineral density, crucial in diagnosing osteoporosis and determining fracture risk. This non-invasive procedure aids in preventive care for bone health.
