Clinical radiology

A specialist branch of medicine using images

Our consultant radiologists work within our multidisciplinary team to help diagnose and treat diseases using imaging

Overview

Clinical radiology is a specialty that uses medical imaging to diagnose and, sometimes, treat diseases seen within the body. Our clinical radiologists are qualified medical doctors who have undertaken an additional five years of study and intensive training to specialise in this field. They are trained to perform and interpret medical images to diagnose and treat injuries and diseases of all parts of the body.
At our hospitals, our team of radiologists use a variety of imaging techniques to diagnose and treat diseases. These include:
  • X-rays
  • MRI - magnetic resonance imaging scans
  • Ultrasounds
  • CT - computed tomography scans
  • Nuclear scans - such as bone scans, thyroid scans and PET CT scans
  • Interventional radiology - minimally invasive medical procedures conducted under the guidance of imaging technologies

You may be referred to a clinical radiologist by your consultant to help with a diagnosis.
