The primary aim of our radiology department is to provide an imaging service combining a high standard of technical excellence and an equally high quality of patient care.
Diagnostic imaging is the common term used to describe a full range of routine and specialised radiological procedures.
As radiology is a vital link in the hospital chain, the goal of medical imaging is to provide the physician with as much medical data as possible to help diagnose a patient.
An on-call radiological service is provided by the Saint James Hospital Group, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mobile radiography to the various wards is also available, as well as fluoroscopy needed to support surgical procedures in theatre.
