The radiology department offers a range of diagnostic and interventional imaging services for both in-patients and out-patients. We see patients from GP surgeries, hospital clinics, in-patient wards and from the Emergency Department. We also see many specialised referrals from the Medical Specialist Group.
- Radiology is a medical speciality that uses imaging to diagnose and sometimes treat illness and disease. The department is also known as the X-ray department or Medical Imaging department. In a modern radiology department many techniques are used to image, not just using X-rays but also sound waves, magnetism and gamma rays.
- The Radiology Department at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital (PEH) is the main imaging department for the Bailiwick of Guernsey. There is also a radiology facility at the Mignot Memorial Hospital (MMH) in Alderney which provides plain radiography and ultrasound.
