Broadway Radiology now offers 3D and 4D ultrasound. Compared to traditional 2 dimensional ultrasound images 3D and 4D ultrasound can allow the features of the unborn baby to be seen in more detail. Rather than simply showing the size and shape of the foetus, 3D images can show the unique facial and anatomical features of the baby.
The 4th dimension in 4D scanning is time, or motion. 4D ultraso
Nuchal Translucency Assessment
At Broadway Radiology we offer a pregnancy ultrasound scan between 11 and 14 weeks gestation to measure the nuchal translucency of the foetus. A nuchal translucency scan is a non-invasive test performed to assess the risk of a foetus having a chromosomal abnormality, such as Downs Syndrome (Trisomy 21). It is sometimes called the “nucha
What is MRI?
MRI produces highly detailed images of various body parts without the use of x-rays. It can be 2 or 3 dimensional and can look like “slices” in different directions through the body part under examination. It is better to “zoom” into a specific area rather than to do the whole body (although this can be done), this way much better images can be obt
Breast MRI is ahighly sensitive imaging modality used to detect malignancy within the breast. It does not use radiation as in mammography, but radio frequency waves and magnetism. Two- and three-dimensional images are acquired and a contrast agent (gadolinium) is injected intravenously to help the radiologist to differentiate between benign and malignant tissue. Malignancies have more blo
An MRCPis a study used alternatively for ERCP (Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) to visualise the the biliary tract including the bile duct, the pancreatic duct and the gall bladder for disease, tumors, biliary obstruction and stones.
Salography is an X-ray examination using contrast (X-ray dye) of the Salivary Glands. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes it is performed by a Radiologist (doctor specialising in medical diagnosis using X-rays) and a Medical Radiation Technologist (expert in the use of x-ray equipment). These glands release saliva into the mouth through the salivary ducts, the flow of saliva to the mou
