What do we do?

The Neuroradiology Department at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle upon Tyne offers one of the most comprehensive Neuroradiology services in the UK.

The department is located within the New Victoria Wing of the RVI. Neuroradiology is run and staffed by a highly specialist and experienced multi-disciplinary team of neuroradiographers, neuroradiologists and neuroradiology nurses. The excellent medical facilities available to us ensure that patients recieve high quality care at all times.

The department is equipped with two MRI scanners 3T & 1.5T, which enables our highly skilled staff to see more patients and undertake highly complex procedures.  We have a Toshiba multi slice CT scanner and two angiographic and interventional suites, providing neurovascular and spinal interventional services.

The Trust is involved in many international research studies and is at the forefront of pioneering new techniques. There are longstanding strong collaborations between neuroradiology within the Trust and Newcastle University enabling research in a variety of areas. The strong research base in Newcastle means that patients attending the Neuroradiology department often undergo “state of the art” imaging and receive “state of the art” interventional procedures.
