Dr Tlailane offers radiology services, a branch of medicine that deals with radiant energy in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Radiology can be divided into two broad areas – diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. Diagnostic radiology, commonly in the form of X-rays, represents the final link in the diagnostic chain, as Dr Tlailane searches for relevant image information to evaluate and finally support a sound diagnosis.
The modern use of radiology has been one of the great advances made in the practice of medicine, allowing us to diagnose and manage our patients’ diseases safely and rapidly. Many of today’s medical improvements require radiology to confirm diagnoses, plan management and monitor the response to treatment. Many people have benefited from the use of radiology, whether for a simple chest X-ray for a cough, X-rays to determine cancerous tumours or a bone X-ray for a fracture.
