Diagnostic Tests and Scans 

The imaging department at Woodthorpe Hospital is staffed by experienced professionals and is equipped with state of the art equipment.

All images produced at Woodthorpe Hospital are stored on our PACS system and can be sent electronically nationally across the IEP (Image Exchange Portal) within 30 minutes during working hours to hundreds of other hospitals in the UK both NHS and private.

We also have visiting Ramsay MRI and CT scanners. The MRI visits at least once a week and CT fortnightly currently with plans to extend these services as demand increases.
