Radiology is the branch of medicine that allows us to diagnose and treat diseases in our body with the use of medical imaging.
We have a range of medical imaging capabilities at The New Foscote Hospital including Ultrasound, CT imaging 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.
