Radiology is a very widely used investigative procedure. The Radiology
Suite Facilities include up to date conventional radiography, specialised
equipment for fluoroscopy and tomography, full mammographic facilities
and ultrasound scanning equipment. Portable X-Ray machines are used in
the Intensive Care Unit and Theatres.
As well as conventional radiography we
also offer specialised urological radiology such
as retrograde pyleograms, venography, sialography,
percutaneous cholangiograms and cholecystograms.
Various ultrasound investigations are carried out including the assesment
of pregnancy. There is also a Doppler facility on the ultrasound machine
which allows investigations of abnormalities in the blood vessels.
Mammography is available for screening breast disease. Using the most
modern equipment the examination is completed within 30 minutes.
The consultant Radiologists and Radiographers are complemented by state
of the art equipment and results are available within 24 hours.
