Our Department of Radiology has access to the most advanced imaging technology that is used for cancer detection. Imaging Tests utilised for the diagnosis of cancer include, among others, a Computerised Tomography (CT) Scan, Bone Scan, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan, Ultrasound, and X-ray.
