An Australian mum has shared a picture of a child’s X-ray as part of a dire warning to parents about why they should never let their kid’s eat full grapes.
Angela Henderson, who runs parenting blog Finlee and Me, recently shared the picture from a paediatrician in order to raise awareness about choking hazards.
We are proud to announce that at Strathfield Medical Imaging we have added another scan type to our repertoire- the CT Coronary Angiogram.

Dramatic crashes, spectacular spills and high-profile injuries – if anything, a week and a half of action in Pyeongchang has proved Winter Olympic events carry with them a fairly high degree of risk.
Just yesterday, one of the Canadian skiers Chris Del Bosco suffered a suspected broken pelvis after a brutal 30m fall in the men’s ski cross.
The 35-year-old completely misjudged his takeoff from a jump and accidentally performed a horror backflip, which left him flying through the air upside-down.
He desperately kicked his legs in midair to try to reset himself but could not get upright.
Del Bosco then landed on his right hip before skidding several metres and coming to a stop as his rivals went on to finish the run.
A Canadian official initially said he had suffered a broken pelvis but then revealed more Medical Imaging tests were needed to determine the full extent of the injury.
Today, Friday the 16th of February marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year celebrations around the world for 2018.
In Chinese astrology, each year is related to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle. 2018 is an Earth Dog Year, the eleventh sign in the Chinese zodiac.
Years of the Dog include 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, and 2030…
If you’re born in a Dog year, the following are deemed lucky for you:
- Lucky numbers: 3, 4, 9
- Lucky colors: red, green, and purple
- Lucky flowers: rose, cymbidium orchids
Whether born under the zodiac year or not, we expect people all over the world to participate in celebrations, by letting off firecrackers, ringing bells, watching traditional lion dances and gathering with both family and friends.
We would like to wish all of our patients and staff a Happy Chinese New Year and well wishes with good health, wealth and luck for 2018, the Year of the Dog!
