About

Welcome to the Ultrasound and x-ray lab

My career started started back in 2007 when i registered to Study a diploma in Radiography (diagnostic)  at Durban University of Technologies. I completed my studies in 2009 with cum lade and performed in excess of 2500 hours of practical experience at Lake, smit and partners. In 2010, I was based at Newcastle provincial hospital as a community service radiographer for the year. In 2011, I started with My B-tech in Ultrasound at Durban University of technologies and completed the course over a two year period. During the two year coarse a minimum of 2500 hours of practical experience was performed at Lake, smit and partners once again. During the B-tech i also maintained a night duty radiographer position at Lake, smit and partners. I was employed as an ultrasonographer from January 2013 and excelled and was appointed as a specialist sonographer during my time spent there.

I also attended an advanced musculoskeletal course and an online musculoskeletal course provided by a Canadian institution during my time at Lake, smit and partners. On the 2nd January 2018 my very own private practice was born and the Ultrasound lab opens its doors to the community of scottburgh and surrounding areas. Further more on the 2 December 2019, the ultrasound and x-ray lab was opened at 8 Murray Smith avenue, Winklespruit, Amanzimtoti where a general x-ray and ultrasound service is offered.

The use of ultrasound and x-rays has been widely used throughout the medical field and has many different applications. As a sonographer I am competent in abdominal and pelvic ultrasound, vascular ultrasound, small parts, pleural space and have a special interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound. 3D and 4D obstetric imaging is also offered at the practice. The ultrasound and x-ray lab is based at 8 Murray Smith avenue, winklespruit, Amanzimtoti at fountain med medical centre. General x-rays are available from 8am to 5pm.

As a sonographer and diagnostic radiographer, i believe that the ultrasound scan and x-ray performed is only as good as the operators knowledge and experience.
