X-ray Department

The X-Ray department of Nicosia Polyclinic consists of 3 rooms and is equipped with the latest contemporary equipment resulting in excellent image quality and the lowest possible radiation dose. The department machines perform:

  • X-Rays: chest, abdomen, pelvis, upper and lower limbs
  • Osteoporosis tests – DEXA
  • Mammograms
  • Digital Panoramic and Cephalometric X-Rays
  • Digital fluoroscopy
Since our equipments are digital, the process of having an X-Ray is much faster allowing the image to be reported more quickly.

Portable X-ray and Fluoroscopy

Our surgical theatres are equipped with an advanced portable fluoroscopy machine (Phillips BV300 C-ARM). This machine is particularly useful in orthopedic operations involving fractures were the surgeons need to visualize the alignment of the bones and ensure that they have been returned to their normal anatomical position.

Osteoporosis tests – DEXA

Our X-Ray department has an advanced imaging machine (General Electric Lunar) which delivers rapid scans with excellent quality at low dose. Its improved technology detects subtle bone changes in a variety of clinical applications and provides:

  • Advanced Hip Analysis
  • Dual-energy Vertebral Assessment
  • Lateral Bone Mineral Density
  • Total Body bone health assessment
