EMR, Eugene Marais Radiology is a private firm of diagnostic radiologists based at the Life Eugene Marais Hospital in Les Marais, Pretoria.
We offer a range of diagnostic imaging services including x-rays, ultrasound, mammography, bone-density, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). All diagnostic imaging is saved and distributed digitally.
You will receive an email link connecting you to your radiology images and report in a secure cloud-based storage site. This link can be viewed multiple times and can be forwarded as required.
Your doctor has immediate access to your images and report via our secure online Neologica PACS system. Your doctor will also receive the report via email.
We support the global initiative of reducing our carbon footprint by going paperless in most processes of the business.

An X-ray is a quick, painless procedure that produces images of the structures inside your body. It is most commonly performed to evaluate the lungs, heart size, bowel and bones. It is a painless procedure. It is important to tell the radiographer if you are or suspect you may be pregnant.

Fluoroscopy is a procedure performed to view organs in motion. It uses a continuous X-ray beam. X-ray contrast agents such as barium or iodine are used. Types of fluoroscopic procedures include: Barium swallow, video swallow, Barium meal and follow through, Barium enema, hysterosalpingogram. Please inform the radiographer of any allergies or pregnancy. Preparation will vary depending on the specific procedure. Some preparation like bowel cleansing needs to be started well in advance and will be discussed at the time of scheduling an appointment.

Diagnostic ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. We perform a range of ultrasound examinations including cardiac, vascular and musculo-skeletal imaging. Most ultrasound examinations require no preparation with the exception of abdominal (especially gallbladder) imaging where you need to be fasting from the night before. Ultrasound of the pelvis requires a full bladder. You may be asked to drink four to six glasses of water, wait until the water fills you bladder and not urinate until the examination is completed.

Digital mammography &breast tomosynthesis
Mammography plays a central role in early detection of breast cancer. In conventional mammography two low dose x-ray images, from top-to-bottom and angled from side-to-side are taken while the breast is compressed between a clear plastic paddle and a detector. Conventional mammography is combined with ultrasound, tomosynthesis, breast biopsy or breast MRI as needed. In breast tomosynthesis, the x-ray tube moves in an arc over the compressed breast obtaining multiple images. These are then reconstructed by a computer into 3D images. These 3D images help minimizing tissue overlap that can hide cancers or make it difficult to distinguish between tumours and normal overlapping tissue.

A bone density test is performed to determine whether you have osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the abnormal loss of bone tissue resulting in fragile porous bones with an increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is most common in postmenopausal women. X-rays are used to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. It is a painless procedure.

Computed tomography (CT)
Computed tomography (CT) combines a series of x-rays taken at different angles to create cross-sectional images (slices) of organs, bones and soft tissues. CT scans provide more information than plain x-rays. It is a painless procedure. Sometimes intravenous and oral contrast must be administered. Oral contrast is usually needed for examinations of your abdomen, it needs to travel through the bowel – you will have to drink it at intervals one to two hours before the CT is performed. Please inform the radiographer of any allergies, medical conditions and if you are pregnant.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create images of the organs and tissues within your body. A MRI scanner is a cylinder that’s open at both ends. The scanner will make loud tapping noises at certain times during the examination – you will be given headphones to wear.
As the MRI scanner produces strong magnetic fields, you will have to remove any metal object from your body. Please inform the radiographer of any pacemakers, medical or other implants or instrumentation.
It is a painless procedure. If you are claustrophobic, you can ask for a sedative. Following the administration of a sedative you will not be allowed to drive or operate dangerous apparatus. Sometimes intravenous contrast must be administered. Please inform the radiographer of any allergies or medical conditions.
