We would like to support you with the following services:
We hope to boost your diagnostic confidence with Kevin using our Siemens 3 Tesla Skyra system which is the absolute state–of the–art in digital MRI. As many of you know, Kevin has extensive experience and profound interest in musculoskeletal MRI. He is keen to push this technology to the limits of diagnosis to ensure the results are tailored specifically for you and your patients’ particular requirements. While the scanner does not currently have a Medicare rebate, we guarantee competitive pricing against all other MRI scanners in the ACT.
We can provide you with a new enhanced level of bone imaging. We are also keen to partner with you to solve your clinical problems and make our scans specific to your concerns.
You will receive images from our Siemens Intevo xSPECT system is one of the first 3rd generation scanners in Australia. The bone images will astound you! Iain is a pioneer in this new paradigm of bone scanning. For more information see xSPECT BONE.
We have also introduced quantitative bone imaging and are currently the only private practice in Australia using this technology in musculoskeletal assessment. This enables us to directly measure the amount of tracer uptake in any location and in combination with xSPECT allows a more precise and sensitive assessment of musculoskeletal problems.
Our ultrasound team has an extensive amount of Sports Medicine experience. Iain leads a team that is ready to respond to your specific needs and in conjunction with Samsung Ultrasound, will deliver more detail and diagnostic clarity than ever before. A full range of injection therapies (corticosteroid, PRP, hyaluronic acid, polidocanol, prolotherapy) will be available. Iain will also be using new techniques to better characterise soft tissue changes, tendon tears, degrees of fibrosis and healing. We are also using a unique tendon elastography assessment technique which is still in the development phase and which is giving us a novel insight into tendon assessment and management.
Our Aquilion Prime 160 slice CT scanner provides rapid and high–resolution images producing detailed information during multiple stages of contrast enhancement. This allows Kevin deliver a report that provides you with the answers you need at the lowest possible x–ray dose for the patient (it can reduce current doses by up to 75%). It has a wide (780mm) bore which will help access for obese and ill patients.
