Types of examination

The type of examination you'll have depends on what your appointment is for.

We carry out the following types of examinations:

General x-ray

Ultrasound

Computed Tomography (CT)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Mammography

Examination preparation

Some examinations need special preparation. Before your examination you may be asked, for example, to:

  • drink lots
  • not to drink or eat at all
  • or to drink a special fluid

We tell you what to do to prepare in your appointment letter. You can email us or call us on the number in your appointment letter if you need more information.

What to wear

You may have to change into a gown before your examination.

We show you a cubicle where you can get changed. There are free lockers for your clothes and other possessions. If you prefer to wear your own clothes, this may be possible. Clothes containing metal may need to be removed. Wearing clothes without zips, metal clips or buttons may reduce the likelihood of you needing to get changed.

Your results

We check your images before you leave the department. Later, a consultant radiologist produces an official report. This is available to your hospital consultant and you get your results when you see or talk to them.

If your GP referred you, they usually receive a copy of the report within five working days. If you are not given your results after this time, contact your referring doctor.

Safety of examinations

We follow all the relevant legislation that governs the use of radiation. Careful checks are in place to ensure the safety of radiation machinery for patients and staff. Radiation dose levels in our department are monitored to follow UK standards. If you have any questions about the risks from radiation or related issues, ask the radiographer who carries out your examination.

Children

We don't conduct examinations on patients under 16 without the consent / presence of a parent or guardian, except in an emergency. Patients under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We do not have facilities to look after children who are not patients.
