Medical Imaging

Standard physical examination by a doctor can only provide a very limited information of your health and only advanced imaging technology can fully fulfil the requirement for a comprehensive and truly detailed health assessment and early diagnosis.

Our Advanced MRI Imaging

MRI is a radiation-free and extremely safe imaging technology. Our state-of-the-art Siemens Altea MRI scanner with Innovision is ground-breaking with fast and extremely accurate targeted diagnostic images of your body. Powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and BioMatrix Technology with cutting-edge acceleration technologies such as Simultaneous Multi-Slice for static 2D and 3D imaging it transforms MRI imaging with fast and highly accurate diagnostic scans. BioMatrix Sensors, Tuners, and Interfaces enable us to anticipate motion, adapt to any patient's body type and accelerate patient positioning. The result: higher diagnostic confidence and high quality personalized exam.

Innovision video technology is designed to redefine the patient experience, using a revolutionary infotainment solution. It is an immersive video and audio experience during the scan. Like on a first-class flight to better health you will be able to relax in comfort and watch a video or a movie during your scan.

The MRI scan will be take 30 minutes and allows for Advanced Screening and Early Detection for 20 most common cancers in Australia including Ovarian, Pancreatic, Prostate, Breast, Liver, Lung, Brain, Thyroid Cancers as well as brain aneurysms, and cardiovascular disease such as Carotid artery Disease and Aortic Aneurysm.

MRI has also been used recently for Body Composition analysis and is accepted as the gold standard for body composition profiling. Our advanced technology driven by AMRA allows for radiation-free body composition assessment including visceral and abdominal fat content analysis, liver fat assessment, and importantly muscle group volumes and individual muscle assessments.

It is the most detailed, highly accurate and precise body composition analysis currently available for both general health assessments and professional athletes.

Our key differentiator is our advanced MRI diagnostic technology and quality of our service through every step of the examination. Our medical experts, hand-picked clinical and concierge staffs are here to ensure that you have a true 6-star patient experience.

CT Cardiac Imaging

Cardiovascular disease and Heart attacks account for a third of all deaths worldwide and early identification of risk provides an ideal opportunity for prevention as often patients have no symptoms. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is currently the preferred noninvasive modality that can reliably image coronary arteries.

Our advanced imaging technology provides an accurate assessment of your cardiac risk with CT Calcium Score and CT Coronary Angiography. Both are non-invasive and extremely accurate tests for cardiac risk assessment.

Cardiac Stress Echocardiogram

The test is used to:

  • Determine how well your heart tolerates activity
  • Evaluate the function of your heart and valves
  • Determine your likelihood of having coronary artery disease

The stress test usually involves walking on a treadmill. Stress echocardiography assesses the ECG response to ‘stress’ (exercise) as well as obtaining an immediate post-stress echocardiogram to assess for inducible wall motion abnormalities as a marker of reduced blood supply (ischaemia). The cardiologist will analyse the pre- and post-images to assess for alterations in wall motion based on a standard 17-wall segment model.

Carotid Duplex Ultrasound

Carotid ultrasound is a study that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries (blood vessels on either side of your neck).

A carotid ultrasound is performed to test for narrowed carotid arteries, which increase the risk of stroke. Carotid arteries are usually narrowed by a build-up of plaque — made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other substances that circulate in the bloodstream.

Early diagnosis and treatment of a narrowed carotid artery can decrease stroke risk.

Carotid Duplex Ultrasound is used to screen for stroke risk and determine whether you may have narrowing of carotid arteries. It is a safe painless and non-invasive examination with no radiation.

Carotid duplex US uses a combination of conventional and Doppler ultrasound to:

  • assess blood flow in the carotid arteries
  • measure the speed of the blood flow
  • estimate the diameter of a blood vessel and degree of obstruction, if present.

Advanced Body Composition

HOLOGIC DXA

  • With HOLOGIC InnerCore™ Visceral Fat Assessment, the Advanced Body Composition assessment is a more comprehensive way to measure body composition compared to other DXA methods. It provides your total % body fat, total lean mass, bone density, limb comparison for muscle imbalance detection, visceral fat and more. We call it the BodyLogic™ scan.
  • This system has high-resolution ceramic digital detectors array featuring ultra fast, high output, low noise ceramic detectors that provide better bone mapping and images.

Merry Christmas

We will be closed over the Christmas break and will open at the start of February 2022.
