The Digital Imaging Diagnostic Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment including digital X-ray screening, mammography, bone densitometry, ultrasound screening, pulmonary function test, treadmill, etc. Our comprehensive facility enables all screenings and examinations to be completed in the same visit.
MediFast uses advanced digital imaging techniques in X-ray screenings for highly detailed images, enabling accurate detection of abnormalities. These include:
Resting ECG provides an understanding of the heart condition by recording heart rates and rhythm in resting condition. ECG is a record of electrical impulses stimulated by heart contractions. It can detect abnormal rhythm changes, cardiac arrhythmia, ischemic heart diseases and myocardial infarctions. It is usually the first diagnostic tool for suspected heart disorders.
Test Treadmills enable doctors to detect minor coronary blood vessel congestions while the client is undergoing exercise and stress, something which may not be detected accurately by resting ECG.
The treadmill stress test is recorded on a computer and monitored by a cardiologist, resulting in a quick and accurate diagnosis for myocardial infarctions and related coronary diseases.
Ultrasound screening is commonly used to detect abnormalities early in internal organs such as malignant and benign tumours, cysts, fibroids, lipomas and stones.
Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death amongst women. Studies have shown that early detection and treatment can significantly decrease breast cancer fatalities. Mammography is the most effective way to detect the early stages of breast cancer, benign tumors, cysts, and fibroadenosis.
A steady decline of calcium occurs in most women after the age of 35 and declines even more rapidly after menopause due to the decrease in oestrogen levels. Men can also become susceptible to osteoporosis if they are underweight, malnourished, suffer from depression or smoke.
MediFast performs precise and reliable analysis for osteoporosis using GE Lunar DPX-MD+, with advanced technology known as DEXA (Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) to measure the bone density of the femur and spine. Compared with ankle and wrist screening tests using ultrasound, DEXA has a higher degree of accuracy.
