Radiology

The imaging departments at Northwick Park & St Mark's Hospitals and Central Middlesex Hospital offer a comprehensive range of services including general radiography, computerised tomography (CT), ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology.

Hard copies of x-rays and scans are now a thing of the past with our new state-of-the-art Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) and voice recognition reporting. This enables clinical images to be stored electronically and viewed by clinicans on computer screens wherever they are.

We have a team of 20 consultants (general and subspecialist radiologists) offering a high quality clinical service including nationally recognised gastrointestinal, breast and musculoskeletal radiology services. These are complemented by an internationally renowned research programme at the Intestinal Imaging Centre at St Mark's Hospital.
