Our Technology

Our state-of-the-art facility boast some of the world’s latest cutting-edge technology and healthcare equipment, supplemented with highly experienced specialists. To name a few:

1.5 Tesla MRI Scanner

It is extremely efficient, leading to shorter examination times. It provides a more pleasant patient experience, since the shorter size of the magnet bore relieves the sense of confinement patients associate with most MRI scanners.

The higher resolution of the 3 Tesla MRI produces more detailed images, which are beneficial when diagnosing pathological conditions involving the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal system.

The resolution and clarity also allow radiologists to identify smaller lesions and anatomical structures that cannot be seen with less powerful machines. It allows for more sophisticated imaging procedures with more accurate diagnosis. It lowers the risk of distorted images, thus eliminating the need for repeated scans.

Phillips 256-slice Brilliance iCT Scanner

Better diagnostic Images. Operates faster and offers a larger imaging area than a “normal” CT scanner.

The realities are some patients have arrhythmias, fast heart rates or are obese, and pediatric patients squirm, these patients are not accommodated on the normal 64-slice CT scanner, with results being inaccurate.

Siemens MAMMOMAT

Advance screening and diagnostic results – with high diagnostic accuracy. Make the invisible visible-Make all anatomical details clearly visible with the highest depth resolution using our unique 50° wide-angle technology – in HD Breast Tomosynthesis and HD Breast Biopsy. Gain more insight with the first synthetic visualization of tomosynthesis volumes in both 2D and 3D.

Visual classification of breast density can be challenging. With Insight Breast Density you can be sure: It offers 100% objective, volumetric classification for instant risk stratification right at the acquisition workstation.

Digital radiography

Digital radiography typically reduces radiation exposure by 75% or more, that mean our patients will notice a higher level of care when we use digital X-ray equipment.

Digital X-ray systems lets us control the exposure of each image in real time, so we can make images darker or lighter on demand. We can also enlarge images, make enhancements to colour and superimpose textures. These features improve our ability to detect disease and its current state.

They also provide immediate visuals for compelling patient education. All this adds up to faster diagnosis and greater treatment plan acceptance.

GE B20 Patient monitors mounted on Maquet Modutecs

Our patients need the best possible care, as such, these world-class patient monitors provide our patients with a continuous flow of quality information to enhance clinical decision-making.

Capable of monitoring adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients, this versatile unit is available in all our units. The B20 patient monitor is designed with advanced clinical measurement technologies for accurate and reliable patient monitoring under challenging conditions.

The Maquet Modutec units ensure vital utilities and equipment are easily accessible, streamlining workflows and improving efficiency.

4 Operating theatres (1 laminar flow theatre)

Our state-of-the-art operating theatres ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.

Our laminar flow theatre works to prevent airborne bacteria from getting into open wounds, as well as removing and reducing levels of bacteria on exposed surgical instruments, surgeons and our patient’ own skin.

Laparoscopy

laparoscopic surgery has the advantages of avoiding large open wounds or incisions and thus of decreasing blood loss, pain and discomfort.

Patients have fewer unwanted effects from analgesia because less analgesia is required. The fine instruments are less apt to cause tissue trauma and blood loss.

Advanced Neonatal ICU (NNICU) ventilators

The Accutronic Fabian Neonatal Ventilator is the third generation Fabian Neonatal Ventilator.With Volume Guarantee, delivers consistent and comfortable tidal volumes to patients weighing up to 10kg.

The Accutronic Fabian works in harmony with the patient and the clinical setting to achieve the perfect balance of comfort and control. Retaining all the standard modes of neonatal ventilation, Fabian HFO also offers nCPAP and bi-level nCPAP in conjunction with single-use products such as Inspire nCPAP. Easy to read real-time graphic waveforms, trend screens, respiratory mechanics module and overlaid loops are displayed on a clear, bright, large touch-screen TFT display with “One Touch” settings, interactive full alphanumeric keyboard, simple, direct, intuitive commands and menus. Plus, with its 2.5hour battery it is ideal for transportation.

Flow, volume, pressure loops, FiO2 monitoring, all parameters available at a glance, with an option for video-assisted intubation, with pop-up screen.

The Carescape R860 Measuring is one of the world’s leading NNICU ventilators amongst the endless list of benefits, the machine’s advanced tools include: Functional Residual Capacity (FRC): A vigilant focus on lung protection. The Lung Protection tools in the CARESCAPE R860 calculate FRC, providing us with data for determining the optimal PEEP setting for our patients.

Nutritional Assessment: The CARESCAPE R860 offers advanced tools for Indirect Calorimetry measurements that are measured, not estimated. The Metabolics feature in the CARESCAPE R860 has the potential to support improved patient outcomes, reduce infection rates and shorten the length of stay in the NNICU. The GE gas module measures inhaled and exhaled gases which the specialist can use to assess a patient’s nutritional status.

Weaning Support: Prolonged ventilation is associated with a host of complications that can have significant health and cost implications. Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT) is a mode of ventilation on the CARESCAPE R860 that allows clinicians to administer trials in a consistent manner while providing continuous trending and documentation of results to assess progress during trials. By easily navigating to see your patient’s history, you know when they’re ready to breathe on their own.

X-Ray Flouroscopy

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique commonly used by physicians to obtain real-time moving images of internal structures of the patient through the use of a fluoroscope. A fluoroscope consists of an X-ray source and fluorescent screen between which a patient is placed.

This technology is very helpful to surgeons when performing surgical procedures. Interventional fluoroscopy has tremendous advantages over invasive surgical procedures because it requires a very small incision which substantially reduces recovery time and reduces risk of infection for the patient.

Fluoroscopy can be used in any of the following situations: Blood flow studies, Orthopedic surgery, Angiography of the leg, heart and cerebral vessels, Catheter insertion, Enemas, Urological surgery, Implantation of pacemakers.

Allen Flat Top A-71410 (also known as the Jackson Table)

This extremely rare equipment (In South Africa) is a state-of-the-art premium solution for complex spine surgical procedures. Designed with safety and maximum OR efficiency in mind, the AAT offers a modern and intuitive user interface with convenience features such as central locking casters and a multi-control pendant.

In addition, the AAT can be used in conjunction with our new Lateral to Prone (L2P™) Platform, which allows for simple and convenient repositioning of the patient from the Lateral to the Prone position without the need to move the patient to a new table.
