At Novomed, our patients’ health is always our priority, so we opt for the lowest-radiation diagnostic tools possible in each case. Our specialists are experts in genetic testing, as well as screening processes that rely on sound waves or heat patterns, rather than radiation, to assist in diagnosis. Where necessary, we refer patients for mammograms or MRI screening.
Our highly experienced radiologist Dr Dima Kassabji specializes in breast ultrasounds as well as head-to-toe ultrasounds, which can reveal problems in the thyroid, lungs, liver, ovaries, uterus, kidneys and prostate. She can also detect blockages in the carotid arteries well before a patient gets a brain stroke.
We also have the latest thermography technology, which uses a special camera to record the temperature of the skin and changes in breast tissue. When tumors form or grow, the resulting increased blood circulation and metabolic changes produce heat, which is then picked up by the camera. Thermography emits no radiation and is well suited for low-risk patients. Used in conjunction with ultrasound, it is an excellent tool for the early detection of tumors.
