 Imaging 

'The Imaging Department is the eyes of the hospital. It allows us to see what is happening inside the patient' 

Henry Garvin is the Department Head and has a bachelors degree in ultrasonography.

The department is equipped with two, 2-dimensional general electronic ultrasound machines all with curve-linear, linear and endovaginal and endorectal transducers. These perform a wide range of examinations which include;

  • Obstetrics

  • Gynaecological studies

  • Vascular tests

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) screening

  • Cardiac echo

  • Abdominal scans

  • Small organs (e.g. thyroid gland and testes)

  • Musculoskeletal screening including knee, shoulder and ankle joints.

With our newly constructed X-Ray suite, we are soon installing a state of the art digital Phillips X-Ray with CR modern imaging, a processing unit and a dental OPG machine.

The Department is open 24 hours and run by 3 imaging and ultrasound technologists registered and licensed by the allied health professional’s Council.
