Services Pacific Radiology Offers in Balclutha:
This is acquiring an image of specific parts of your body through the use of x-rays. A Medical radiation technologist (MRT or radiographer) records the image. A radiologist (a doctor with specialist training) interprets the film and sends a written report to your referring doctor by mail, fax or email.
The body can also be seen by creating images that do not use x-rays, instead ultrasound waves are used. This is the preferred way to examine babies before birth and often a number of abdominal and pelvic organs.
