Ultrasound
In an ultrasound scan, high-frequency sound waves are transmitted into the patient’s body. It can go underneath the skin. The sound waves that bounce back are collected with a device, which then display images of the organ or tissues under examination. Being painless, harmless, no radiation and no contrast is used, ultrasound scan is then believed to be the safest medical imaging.
Precautions:
Ultrasound of Upper Abdomen
  • Fasting for 6 hours prior to examination.

Ultrasound of Whole Abdomen
  • Fasting for 4-6 hours prior to examination.
  • Drink a lot of water 30 minutes prior to examination until you have full bladder.

Ultrasound of Pelvis / Prostate
  • Drink a lot of water 30 minutes prior to examination until you have full bladder.

Intravenous Urography
  • Fasting for 4-6 hours prior to examination.
  • Must empty bladder before examination.
  • Please inform our staff about any asthma, diabetes mellitus or other allergies.

*For diabetes patient requiring medication, please consult the referral clinician and inform our staff for the adjustment of insulin dosage and Metformin if necessary.

Bone Densitometry (DEXA)
Bone Densitometry (DEXA) by using two different energy levels of X-ray beam to scan the human spine and hip to calculate the bone density. The test is quick and uses very low doses of radiation. Women after menopause are more susceptible to bone mass loss and recommended for the DEXA screening for early detection of osteoporosis.
Precautions:
*Please ensure that the patient is not pregnant during the examination, please consult our staff in case of any queries.
