DEXA


DEXAWhat is a DEXA scan?

DEXA is mainly used to investigate bone mineral density reduction caused by osteoporosis.

By using two different X-ray sources rather than one, a DEXA greatly improves the accuracy in measuring the density of bone tissue.

You may be advised to have a bone density scan if:

  • You have taken a course of steroid tablets lasting for three months or more
     
  • You currently have one of the following medical problems:Crohn's disease, coeliac disease, ulcerative colitis,  rheumatoid arthritis, gastrectomy, anorexia nervosa, thyrotoxicosis, hyperparathyroidism, renal failure, ankylosing spondylitis or lactose intolerance
     
  • You have broken a bone after a slight bump or trivial fall (in patients aged 55 and over)
     
  • You have experienced early or medical menopause (in patients aged 45 and under)
     
  • You are experiencing height loss (kyphosis) of 5 centimetres or more
     
  • You have a diagnosed family history of hip fracture
     
  • You have a diagnosed family history of osteoporosis
     
  • You have radiological osteopenia
     
  • You have taken a course of one of the following breast cancer drugs: Arimidex, Aromasin and Femara


What happens during a DEXA scan?

Our radiographer will take the time before your procedure to explain everything to you. During the scan, the radiographer will ask you to lie on a comfortable scanner bed while the scanner passes above you.  DEXA is a very straightforward scan and causes no discomfort or pain.


How long does a DEXA scan take?

The scan usually takes 10 to 15 minutes as it can take a few minutes to scan each bone. Appointments usually last approximately 40 minutes.


Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we are happy for a friend or family member to accompany you.


Are there any side effects?

DEXA scans are safe. The DEXA scan only exposes your body to a miniscule quantity of X-ray radiation. 

However, X-rays are not safe for, or given to, pregnant women unless they have a serious medical condition which requires scanning. If you think you may be pregnant, it is important to tell us before your appointment day.


What happens after a DEXA scan?

After your scan, you can go home.

Image Guided Injections


Image guided injection consent formWhat are image guided injections?

Image guided injections are often used to reduce pain and inflammation in the musculoskeletal system - in joints, ligaments or tendons. 

We use medical imaging techniques to help us to administer an injection of anaesthetic or  anti-inflammatory steroid directly into your problematic joint, ligament or tendon.


What happens during an image guided injection?

Firstly, our consultant will take the time to explain everything to you. There will be both a nurse and a consultant present.

Before we begin, the consultant or nurse will ask you to complete a patient consent form.

During your injection either a CT or ultrasound scanner will be used to guide the injection into place. Over the course of the treatment you will be awake and will be able to speak freely with the nurse or consultant if you wish.
 

How long does an image guided injection take?

Typically, an  image guided injection takes around 30 minutes.
 

Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we prefer that you are accompanied by a friend or family member in order that they can drive you home after your appointment.
 

Are there any side effects?

Image guided injections are generally very safe. However, as with any invasive procedure, there are slight risks involved. All risks will be discussed with you by the nurse or consultant before your procedure.
 

What happens after an image guided injection?

After your procedure you can get dressed. We will keep you in for observation for up to one hour after the procedure before your friend or family member can drive you home.

 

This information is also available on a downloadable patient information sheet.

CT Scanning


CTWhat is a CT scan?

A CT scan stands for Computed Tomography scan. It is also known as a CAT (Computer Axial Tomography) scan.

A CT scanner shines several X-rays through the body at the same time and is used to create very highly detailed images that appear as slices or cross-sections of your body. They can be two or three dimensional.

A CT scan is used for the diagnosis and monitoring of a broad range of medical conditions. It is most commonly used to look at organs, bones and the brain.


What happens during a CT scan?

Firstly, our radiographer will take the time to explain everything to you.

The scanner is a large ring shape rather like a giant doughnut. You will be asked to lie down upon a sliding bed which will move slowly in and out of the centre of the scanner. Nothing touches you during the scan but you will hear the scanner working – it produces a whirring noise.

The radiographer may ask you to hold your breath for a few seconds, this is completely normal.

In some instances it may be necessary for a type of dye called 'contrast medium' to be given as an injection. The dye allows us to see certain parts of the body more clearly. It is completely safe and causes only a warm sensation as it travels around your body.


How long does a CT scan take?

A CT scan typically takes between 5 and 10 minutes.


Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we are happy for a friend or family member to accompany you. However, only in exceptional circumstances do we allow them to accompany you during examination; this is for health and safety reasons.


Are there any side effects?

A CT scan uses multiple X-rays. The risk and radiation associated with the procedure is very low and the procedure is considered suitable for most patients.

However, CT scans are not safe for, or given to, pregnant women unless they have a serious medical condition which requires diagnostic imaging. If you think you may be pregnant, it is important to tell us before the day of your appointment.


What happens after a CT scan?

After your scan, you can go home.

 

This information is also available on a downloadable patient information sheet.

MRI Scanning


MRIWhat is an MRI scan?

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique which uses a strong magnetic field to produce high grade pictures of the soft tissues inside your body. Often MRI is used to look at joints, the spine, the brain and the internal organs.

The MRI scanner can produce both two and three dimensional images. An MRI scan is more versatile than simple X rays and is used to examine a large variety of medical conditions.


What happens during an MRI scan?

You will be able to talk to the radiographer throughout the entire examination. They will ask you to lie down upon a comfortable bed which slides through the centre of the MRI scanner. The scanner is shaped like a very short tunnel - it is open on both ends.

During the scan, it is recommended that you lie as still as possible. Slight movement or heavy breathing can affect the clarity of the images being produced.

Please be aware that the scanner can be very noisy. Don’t be alarmed, this is completely normal. We will provide you with headphones to protect your ears. This means you may listen to music during the scan if you would like to.

In some instances it may be necessary for a type of dye called 'contrast medium' to be given as an injection. The dye allows us to see certain parts of the body more clearly. It is completely safe and causes only a warm sensation as it travels around your body.
 

How long does an MRI scan take?

An MRI scan typically takes around 20 minutes however, depending upon the type of examination it may take longer.


Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we are happy for a friend or family member to accompany you. However, only in exceptional circumstances do we allow them to accompany you during examination; this is for health and safety reasons.


Are there any side effects?

MRI scans are generally very safe. There are no side effects and the scan causes no discomfort or pain.

However, some people are not able to have an MRI scan. The strong magnetic field created by the scanner can affect metals such as iron, nickel and steel. Before you can have an MRI scan, you will be asked questions about your medical history, operations, allergies and medicines you currently take to make sure the scan is safe for you.

MRI scans are not suitable for women who are under 12 weeks pregnant.

Some patients may be worried about feeling claustrophobic during the scan - this is fairly common. Our team are used to supporting patients to overcome their worries about a scan and, we find that most patients cope very well. We are more than happy for patients to visit our imaging department to familiarise themselves with the equipment, surroundings and staff before their appointment. Many patients find this is a great way to put their mind at ease. To arrange this please contact us.


What happens after an MRI scan?

After your scan, you can go home.

 

This information is also available on a downloadable patient information sheet.

To Imaging Services Overview

X-ray


What is an X ray?

X rays are commonly used to capture images of bones, joints, the chest and the spine. This is the type of scan that most people are familiar with.

An X ray involves shining a small amount of ionising radiation through the body to produce images on film or screen.


What happens during an X ray?

Our radiographer will place you into the correct position ready for your X ray. You may be asked to lie down on a table, sit down on a chair or to stand in position against a panel. This depends upon which area of the body is being X rayed. The radiographer may need to touch the area being X rayed to ensure that it is correctly positioned.

Our radiographer will then move behind a screen to switch on the X-ray device. They will step out from behind the screen once the X ray is complete.


How long does an X ray take?

A single X ray only takes a few minutes however; the radiographer may wish to take more than one X ray, in different positions.


Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we are happy for a friend or family member to accompany you. However, we cannot let them in to the room where you will be examined; this is for health and safety reasons.


Are there any side effects?

X rays are not safe for, or given to, pregnant women unless they have a serious medical condition which requires diagnostic imaging. If you think you may be pregnant, it is important to tell us before the day of your appointment.


What happens after an X ray?

After your X ray, you can go home.

 

This information is also available on a downloadable patient information sheet.

To Imaging Services Overview

Ultrasound


UltrasoundWhat is an ultrasound scan?

Ultrasound scanning uses sound waves to provide an image of the inside of the body.

It is often used to look at your internal organs, tendons, muscles and joints. Ultrasound can also be used to show blood flow through the blood vessels/arteries.


What happens during an ultrasound scan?

Our consultant or sonographer will take the time before your procedure to explain everything to you. You will then be asked to lie down upon a raised bed, normally facing upwards.

The lights will be dimmed so that the monitor can be seen clearly and the consultant or sonographer will then apply a clear hypoallergenic gel to the area of your body which requires scanning.

During the scan, the consultant or sonographer will move a small sensor across the skin to look at the area from different directions and viewpoints. The images captured are instantly shown upon a screen.

You may be asked to hold your breath or to move into different positions, this is completely normal.


How long does an ultrasound scan take?

Ultrasound is a very straightforward scan. The scan usually takes only 10 – 15 minutes, with the entire appointment lasting approximately 30 – 40 minutes.


Can I bring someone with me?

Yes, we are happy for a friend or family member to accompany you.


Are there any side effects?

No, the procedure is entirely safe.


What happens after an ultrasound scan?

Our consultant or sonographer will help you to wipe off the gel which is washable. Your skin may still feel slightly sticky but will soon dry. After this, you can go home.

 

This information is also available on a downloadable patient information sheet.
