The understanding of the imaging procedure and the preparation of patients before the imaging examination are important factors in providing optimal image results. I-MED Network has developed extensive patient education brochures for each imaging investigation to optimally prepare patients for the relevant procedure to get best results.
Diagnostic imaging involves a variety of medical imaging techniques. Complex equipment with powerful computers are used to produce images of the inside of a patient’s body. These images assist in the diagnosis and treatment of illness. Radiographers obtain radiographic images, Sonographers perform ultrasound examinations and Nuclear Medicine technologists are trained to acquire functional images of the body. All images are viewed and analysed by a Radiologist, a doctor who specialises in Diagnostic Imaging. The radiologist provides your referring doctor with a written report on the findings of your examination. Appropriate patient education brochures can be selected from the “procedures” section.
