Radiology

radiology-consultant

Welcome to SaTH Radiology. Radiology is the branch of medicine specialising in the use of imaging to diagnose and treat disease seen within the body.

What We Do

Radiographers and Radiologists use a variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray, Ultrasound, Computed tomography (CT), Nuclear Medicine, Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Our Imaging departments and teams provide an imaging and treatment service at both hospital sites for the Trust. Some imaging is also provided within the community.  These sites include Ludlow, Bridgnorth, Whitchurch and Newport.

Our Aim

We aim to offer you great customer service, with direct access to our imaging service for patients and those who have been referred by their GP. We also offer 7 day services with extended days. We value and welcome your feedback to help us improve; please take the time to complete one of our feedback forms during your visit to us. Should our service fall below satisfactory in any aspect during your visit, please follow the Trust’s complaints procedure via the PALS team who will link with us for a full response.

Please be aware that we are a training site for undergraduate Radiographers and Radiologists supporting Birmingham City, Bangor and Keele Universities.

We welcome you to attend with your friends and family in order to provide support. Please be advised that we cannot however offer child-care facilities. For certain procedures, we will enquire if you require a chaperone.

Taking a Child/Young Person for an MRI

If you’re taking a child for a scan then you can show them the video below, which will help explain to them what to expect. The video, produced by our team here at SaTH, targets children between the ages of four and ten who have either never had a scan before or are trying it for the first time without a general anaesthetic.
