The Radiology Service provides imaging to diagnose, assess and treat patients and is involved in almost every patient pathway.
Radiology provides a wide range of diagnostic imaging including Breast, Cardiac Catheterisation, CT(Computed Tomography), Dental, DXA (Bone Densitometry), Fluoroscopy, Interventional imaging, MRI (Magnetic Resonance), Nuclear Medicine, Plain Film X-ray and Ultrasound (US).
Administration and Clerical staff will greet you when you arrive at one of our reception areas. They will check that we have all your details and that they are correct, before booking you onto our computer system. They provide support, book appointments and answer queries.
Radiography Assistants/Helpers provide support to the radiologists, radiographers and nurses. They help patients prepare for their examination, for example getting you changed into a gown, giving you a drink before a CT scan or helping you to complete a questionnaire before your MRI scan.
Radiology Nurses help the team during interventional procedures, carry out selected interventional procedures independently and provide care and support for patients in the radiology department.
Assistant Practitioners have undertaken training to assist Radiographers with undertaking specific x-rays.
Diagnostic Radiographers employ a wide range of imaging techniques such as CT, MRI, Ultrasound and plain film to produce high quality images to diagnose injury or disease. Often, they interpret the images so that the correct treatment can be provided. They undertake diagnostic work and independent reporting as part of the multidisciplinary team. They are a key part of the delivery of acute as well as community-based services. Early diagnosis is a vital step in care pathways and the delivery of any subsequent treatment. Health surveillance screening such as mammography has a very important role to play in the early detection of cancer
Radiologists are doctors who are specially trained to interpret diagnostic images such as x-rays, MRI and CT scans. If you have an interventional procedure (such as a biopsy) a radiologist will perform the procedure. Ultrasound scans may be performed by a radiologist.
An electronic report of the results of your examination is made available for your doctor. This may be completed by a Radiologist or Advanced Practice Radiographer.
