The function of the department is to provide the patient and referring clinician with a quality diagnostic imaging service in a safe and friendly environment. The Radiology Department provides the scanning of images of the body for the diagnosis of disease with or without the use of radiation.

Services include:
  • General Radiography
  • Contrast Studies (X-ray of stomach, small intestine or colon following either oral or rectal radio-opaque solution)
  • Urography (X-ray of a part of the urinary tract after injection with radio-opaque solution)
  • Cystography (X-ray of bladder following instillation of radio-opaque solution by catheter)
  • Urodynamics (procedure similar to Cystoscopy (above) with additional rectal catheter – functional study with measurement of pressure gradients in bladder and rectum)
  • Ultrasound (Scanning of areas of the body, using high frequency sound waves, without radiation)
  • Nuclear Medicine (Scanning of specific areas of body following injection of radio-isotope material)
  • Computerised Tomography (CT) Imaging ( Cross sectional head and body scanning using either pulsed or continuous radiation)
  • Procedures such as biopsy, abscess drainage etc. performed by the radiologist
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (images acquired of head and body using a magnet, radio signals and a computer. No X-rays involved)
