Imaging (radiology)

What we do

Radiology involves the use of imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease.

We undertake a range of examinations including x-rays, CT, MRI, ultrasound, interventional radiology and nuclear medicine.

What to expect while under our care

Many examinations require some preparation. Each appointment letter will contain specific information regarding any preparation required.

You will be seen either by a radiographer, sonographer, technician, nurse or radiologist. You will often be asked to change into a gown prior to the examination. For many CT and MRI examinations you will be given a contrast medium injection to enhance the images obtained.

Following the examination you will be given any further instructions if necessary and advice regarding how the results will be made available.

Further information can be found in our patient information leaflets.

Location

We provide services at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Princess Royal Hospital and Hove Polyclinic.
