Clinically all of our coils incorporate Philips exclusive direct digital technology; allowing higher resolutions while maintaining crystal clear images. Our Head and Spine coil also has the unique ability to tilt allowing maximum comfort for patients with kyphosis and those unable to lay flat.
Benefits of having your MRI scan at Kingsbridge Private Hospital include:
MRI provides clear, detailed images for a variety of pathology and soft tissue injures. Including but not limited to:
MRI emits no radiation and has no known detrimental effects on the patient. It is a quick, safe painless procedure.
Cardiac MRI (CMRI)
Cardiac MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) allows Cardiologists to see the heart in more detail than any other imaging format available. This facilitates non-invasive, non-ionising investigation which can more accurately identify those individuals in need of valve replacement, coronary stenting or bypass operations.
What are the Benefits of Cardiac MRI?
A CT scan is a painless, non-invasive and accurate method of imaging soft tissue, lung, bone and blood vessels, which provides true multi-planar images of the entire body.
CT scans can be performed on any part of the body and are useful for diagnosing trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.
Our 64 slice Philips Brilliance MDCT provides excellent fine detail cross sectional images of all body areas.
