  • Used in dentistry for detecting dental caries, periodontal disease, periapical disease, the presence and position of unerupted teeth, and disease of the jaws
  • Can detect foreign objects such as glass or wooden pieces, and gases in different parts of the body
  • Mammography for screening and diagnosing breast cancer
  • Bone Densitometry for diagnosis of osteoporosis

Mammogram

Mammogram is the best method for screening breast cancer. It can detect small tumors and malignant micro-calcification. During the examination, the breast is compressed by two plates. The screening involves low dose of X-ray. The likelihood of getting radiation induced cancer is very small.

The versatile Mammography machine allows interventional procedures such as Mammotome and Fine Needle Aspiration to obtain specimens from suspicious masses as for tissue examination. Sutures are not required for either procedure, therefore there is no disfigurement of the breast. Local anesthesia may be required. Patients can resume normal diet, work and activities afterwards.
