Conventional Radiology

The Unit for Conventional Radiography has the latest technology machines and equipment for digital and digitalized imaging, fluoroscopic and simple, permanent, portable and specialized such as C-arms.

Digital images offer great advantages as they can be stored for a long time allowing for comparison of old tests and recent exam data, if need be. Standard as well as most of the specific radiographs are taken here.

  • GI tract radiography (posterior to barium or gastrographin swallow) of the hypopharynx (including Valsava tests), the esophagus, the stomach, the duodenum and the small bowel (enterography)
  • Small bowel enteroclysis
  • Lower GI tract radiography (Barium enema)
  • IVP/IVU (Pyelogram /urogram following Intravenous administration of contrast materials)
  • Retrograde cysteography
  • Urethrogram
  • Fistulogram
  • Arthrogram
  • Dynamic radiographs (e.g. temporomandibular, shoulder, spinal column etc)
  • Lower limb axonometry
  • Bone age assessment
  • Tomographies
  • Radiographic tests and assessments
