Other scans


A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the female breast. It uses low-energy x-rays to visualise fine details of breast tissue, particularly the presence of calcification or soft tissue masses. This enables the early diagnosis of breast cancer.

Pregnancy scans

Pregnancy scans are done using ultrasound.

Ultrasound imaging allows imaging of the interior of the human body. The advantages of ultrasounds versus x-rays, are that the patient is not submitted to potentially harmful radiation. Images that can't be seen by x-rays are visible through ultrasound imaging.

A maximum of two scans are covered during a pregnancy.
