Radiology

scan

Our Radiology Department offers a round the clock service and carries out around 60,000 examinations a year.

The team is made up of 40 people, nine of which are Consultant Radiologists, and we’re based in the hospital behind the Emergency Department.

We offer a range of services including:

  • plain film radiography
  • fluoroscopy
  • ultrasound
  • CT scans
  • MRI scans
  • nuclear medicine

GP walk-in appointments

We offer GP patients a walk-in service for their plain film examinations between 9am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday. You must remember to bring the request card your GP gave you.

To confirm an appointment or rearrange examination dates please ring 0114 226 0812.

Specialist services

We offer specialist MRI scanning of joints that require an injection of contrast fluid. We also use ultrasound to guide botox injections of the psoas muscle in children with cerebral palsy.

The Nuclear Medicine Department provides a full range of paediatric imaging including MIBG for cancer patients. It also performs SPECT examinations during episodes of convulsions in children in order to support surgery for epilepsy.

We offer a national service for reviewing skeletal and brain imaging in children suspected of having been injured by their carers.

We also provide a specialist imaging service for investigation of child death in co-operation with the Pathology Department.

Radiology results

The results from your radiology examination will be returned to the consultant or team  who has referred you for the test. No results will be available at the X-ray appointment itself as they have to be reported by a radiologist first.

Can I have a copy of my radiology images?

We will need to gain consent from your consultant and there will also be a charge from the department to produce the CD. Please complete the form and send back to the radiology department.
