X-ray

In some situations, X-ray imaging is essential. Particularly in the case of trauma and chest disease, where doctors can diagnose and treat fractures, identify pneumonia and other medical problems.

We operate the X-ray equipment under strict control from the health authorities to ensure that all radiation exposures are kept to the absolute minimum. Doctors at FirstMed only perform X-rays when medically indicated.

Ultrasound

Using our ultrasound machine, our doctors can generate high-resolution images of different body regions such as the thyroid, breast, abdomen, pelvis as well as dynamic studies to check for problems with blood flow in arteries and veins.

We also have the technology for 4D or real-time 3-dimensional fetal images for prenatal patients as part of their routine care. As most people are aware, ultrasound is a very safe technology without the risks of radiation exposure that other imaging modalities carry. With this in mind, we try to make the fullest use of this excellent technology to enhance patient care.
