A computed radiography system is utilised ensuring that images are immediately available to clinical staff and students via the faculty computer network. The conventional system of producing and developing hard copy films is still utilised specifically for student training.
Fluoroscopy and ultra sound are available, and a computed tomography (CT) scanner is used to provide three-dimensional x-ray ‘slices’ for in-depth radiographic diagnostics.
Nuclear imaging which utilises a gamma camera, offers another means of imaging patients in order to obtain the most accurate visual image for diagnostic purposes.
