Radiology is the branch of medicine that allows us to diagnose and treat diseases in our body with the use of medical imaging. Find more information about our MRI scans here.
We have a range of medical imaging capabilities at The New Foscote Hospital including Ultrasound, MRI and X-Ray. Our radiology consultants can also carry out spinal, shoulder and theatre case injections for diagnostic purposes and fluoroscopy services.
Medical x-rays record images of tissues and structures inside the body as they are absorbed in different amounts by different parts of the anatomy. Ultrasound enables us to produce a range of images live in real-time for referrals such as musculoskeletal joints, chest, neck and thyroid, abdomen and pelvis, soft tissues, vascular mapping, and abdominal aortic aneurism. Patients are able to self-refer and self-pay for ultrasound scans. We also provide musculoskeletal studies, including injections for diagnosis and therapeutic purposes.
Other diagnostic procedures for issues such as gastroenterology based illness or bowel cancer screening can be found under Endoscopy.
