What we do
We provide a full range of diagnostic, interventional and therapeutic radiology investigations. Depending on the type of examination you are having, you may need to prepare beforehand for your procedure. Your letter will give you the information you need which is specific to the test you are having. Please make sure you read the information in your letter carefully before you come to hospital.
Our main services, which are all based at King’s College Hospital, are:
- X-ray – uses x-rays to produce images of the skeleton, chest and abdomen.
- Ultrasound – uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of organs such as the liver and kidneys, as well as muscles.
- Computerised Tomography (CT) scan – uses x-rays to produce detailed cross-sectional images of the body and head.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan – uses a combination of strong magnetic and radiowaves to produce detailed pictures of the body and head.
- Interventional radiology – uses x-ray images and contrast media to diagnose or treat diseases using the least invasive techniques.
- Fluoroscopy – uses x-ray and contrast media to provide ‘live’ images, most commonly of the gastrointestinal organs.
Breast mammography is provided by our Breast Screening service.
