Patient Information for the Radiology ServicesShow [+]Hide [-]

Information for patients has been provided for the numerous xray and scanning services provided by the Newcastle Hospitals' X-ray departments, to help you to prepare for your examination.

This information has been designed to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. Procedures such as, CT, MRI or Ultrasound, are all explained, telling you how they are performed and what you may experience.  The X-ray category groups are listed below the 'X-rays and scans' button on the navigation menu to the left.  Each group contains the list of examinations for that X-ray category with a short description, free of jargon, for each examination.  Please click on the examination of interest to view the information. Alternatively, browse through the A-Z list below until you find what you are looking for.

This information is approved by senior members of the Radiology team and reviewed periodically. All patient information is available in both standard and large print size if you want to keep a record of the information you need. The information details for whichever of the Newcastle hospital x-ray departments you are attending.
