MEET OUR NEW RADIOGRAPHER

“Frances van der Merwe”

Frances completed her studies at Tshwane University of Technology and she have been practising as a Diagnostic Radiographer for the past 26 years. Prior to joining the Ndlovu Medical Centre, she worked at several private Radiology practices where she also received training in Computerised Tomography and Magnetic Resonance.

In her own words she said, “I am passionate about my work but nothing compares to having to work with children, especially toddlers.”

Radiography is a noninvasive test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. We perform a wide variety of radiographic procedures including: Head, Spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar), Upper extremeties, Lower extremeties, Pelvis, Shoulder, Chest, Abdomen, Barium contrast studies (upper GI series, barium swallow, lower GI series, barium enema), Myelograms, Arthorograms, Lumbar puncture. Since the body is made up of various substances with differing densities, X-rays can be used to reveal the internal structure of the body on film by highlighting these differences using attenuation, or the absorption of X-ray photons by the denser substances (like calcium-rich bones). Ndlovu clinic is open and all medical services are also available such as an;
