Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
X-Rays and Fluoroscopy
X-rays are highly penetrating, ionizing radiation. Therefore X-ray machines are used to take pictures of dense tissues such as bones and teeth. This is because bones absorb the radiation more than the less dense soft tissue. X-rays from a source pass through the body and onto a photographic cassette. Fluoroscopy is an imaging modality that uses x-rays to allow real-time visualization of body structures. During fluoroscopy, x-ray beams are continually emitted and captured on a screen, producing a real-time, dynamic image. This allows for dynamic assessment of anatomy and function. High density contrast agents may be introduced into the patient to allow for greater differentiation between structures. Common clinical applications
- Barium studies: Barium swallow, barium meal and follow-through, barium enema for evaluation of the gastro-intestinal tract.
- Hysterosalphingography (HSG): for evaluation of the uterine cavity and the fallopian tubes.
- Retrograde urethrogram, micturating cysto-urethrogram: for the evaluation of the abnormalities of the urinary system.
- Fistulography: for the evaluation of fistulae.
- Reduction of fractures under image guidance

EEG is an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain. It can be used to diagnose epilepsy, sleep disorders, depth of anesthesia, coma, encephalopathies and brain death. The clinic has a 32 channel EEG machine with 2 rooms for monitoring.
The clinic has 6 screening rooms. There is currently one General Practitioner. There are plans to have Specialist clinics in Orthopedics, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Plastic surgery, Internal Medicine and Clinic Psychology in the near future
To stabilize acutely ill patients before transfer to hospital for hospitalization
To perform minor surgical procedures
Speech and Hearing
The unit has an audiometer and booth for diagnosis
