General x-rays

The department has two general x-ray units which can perform a wide range of examinations.

MRI scanning

Our MRI unit is home to a GE - General Electric 1.5 Tesla Scanner. These imaging devices are capable of scanning all parts of the body, producing high quality resolution scans in 20-40 minutes (depending on the part of the body being scanned.) The MRI unit is open 5 days per week.  

Breast imaging

The imaging department offers a comprehensive breast imaging service including:

  • Digital mammography
  • Ultrasound
  • Cell sampling/fine needle aspirations
  • MR scan
  • Sentinel node imaging

Our digital mammography unit is also fitted with tomosynthesis capabilities meaning it can take multiple images through the breast.

Our Breast Radiologists perform all examinations along with our Radiographers who work cohesively with our Consultant Breast Surgeons and Breast Care Nurses, ensuring you receive the highest standard of compassion and care. 

Fluoroscopy screening and interventional procedures

At The Highfield Hospital we provide fluoroscopy screening which uses x-rays to obtain images of the required body part. Our team of dedicated Interventional Radiologists are supported by Interventional Nurses and Radiographers, providing you with a fully integrated service throughout your treatment.
