Our radiology service is consultant-led and provides fast access 24/7 to a full range of diagnostic imaging procedures. All radiologists are UK trained sub-specialists and work closely with our consultants from other specialities. Our radiology services include:
- Plain film X-rays
- Ultrasound (including interventional procedures, biopsies and injections)
- Nuclear medicine
- MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan (we have 2 scanners, including a wide scanner more suited to claustrophobic patients)
- CT (computerised tomography) scan
- Bone mineral density (BMD) scan
Diagnostic imaging is the term used to describe the routine and more specialised radiological procedures undertaken within the radiology department.
Our highly qualified and experienced consultant radiologists conduct examinations using medical imaging. They will then report on the findings in order to arrive at a diagnosis and formulate the best treatment plan. Imaging can help evaluate the progress of a disease or injury and assess the response to initial treatments.
