Services

For a summary of our comprehensive services please click on either "Modalities" or "Specialties" or return to the drop-down menu.

General Radiography

Xray Plain xray remains a mainstay of medical imaging and we continue to provide exceptional imaging with accurate, helpful, relevant reports. As with all our imaging modalities, reports can be delivered electronically, mailed, or via phone when required right away! Images are available on quality printed paper or CD on request.

Available at Box Hill Hospital, Maroondah Hospital, Angliss Hospital

ORTHOPANTOMOGRAM (OPG) & LATERAL CEPHALOMETRY

modalities-graphic

An OPG machine uses a rotating arm to create an x-ray panorama of the teeth, mandible and maxilla. This is often performed in conjunction with a lateral cephalogram to obtain a profile view. Bone age assessment of the hands can also be performed at all sites.

Available at Angliss Hospital (OPG and Lat.Ceph) and Maroondah Hospital (OPG only)  (traditional xray film available)

Ultrasound & Doppler

modalities-graphic

Images are formed by radiologists and sonographers placing an ultrasound probe and gel on the body surface. The differential absorption characteristics of body tissues to high frequency waveforms allows creation of pictures of the body and disease processes in real time, without ionising radiation. Ultrasound can also be used to guide needle position in real-time. Services include:

  • Arterial Doppler
  • Venous Doppler
  • Varicose Vein assessment
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Interventional/Injections/biopsies
  • Abdominal and Pelvic Imaging
  • Obstetric - including 3D prints at the Angliss
  • Gynaecological
  • Renal including Renal Arteries
  • Paediatric including hip, spine and head

Available at Box Hill Hospital, Maroondah Hospital, Angliss Hospital


Tomosynthesis

Bringing tomography to the 21st Century, Tomosynthesis is an exciting new modality generating multiple x-ray slices from a single acquisition. It provides lower radiation dose than CT, with superior spatial resolution. Unlike CT, images can be performed with the patient standing. Its main role is in musculoskeletal imaging as well as assisting with abdominal radiology.

Mammography

mammo plus consol

A highly specialised Digital Breast Imaging centre has been set up at Maroondah Hospital focusing on assessment and follow-up of breast disease. The dedicated, experienced and empathic staff assist with stereotactic biopsy and vacuum-assisted biopsy/mammotome biopsy in addition to the diagnostic mammography. We are one of the few centres that do not require the patient to stand during a mammographic biopsy (prone table).

Our newly installed digital system utilises the new diagnositic advances of Tomosynthesis - we are the first site to be able to offer this in the state, and only the second in the country (click here for more information)

Complimentary images are often provided with ultrasound at the same appointment. Available at Maroondah Hospital
