Happy Chinese New Year!

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!

APPLYING CAUTION WITH MRI

You may have read the news recently about a case where a man was sucked into an MRI machine in India and it resulted in his death.

But how did this occur?

MRI units use strong magnetic fields and radio-frequency waves to create images. The magnetic field generated by the MRI scanner will attract objects containing ferromagnetic metals (iron, nickel, cobalt) with considerable force, and it is our job as MRI Technicians to ensure that you are danger free before entering the MRI room.

How are we at Campsie Medical Imaging, ensuring that this kind of thing doesn’t happen in our MRI department?

Questions, Questions and more Questions! At Campsie Medical Imaging we give all of our MRI patient’s a questionnaire regarding not just their medical history, but also working history to ensure that all corners are covered. For more information about our MRI procedures and protocols please feel free to contact us and talk to any of our lovely staff.
