The Radiology Department at the Sports Surgery Clinic (SSC) includes leading diagnostic equipment such as a 64-slice CT scanner, Ultrasound, DEXA, OPG, screening X-Ray and one of the most technologically advanced 3Tesla MRI scanners in the world. All related image guided therapeutic interventions such as targeted joint injections and spinal interventions are supported.
The 3Tesla MRI delivers superior image resolution and quality, supporting a centre of excellence in the assessment and treatment of soft tissue injuries. SSC enjoys an active research affiliation and clinical sciences agreement with General Electric (GE) ensuring access to all developments in MRI and beyond.
The Radiology Department operates in a fully RIS/PACS integrated environment, ensuring all images are directly relayed to referring physicians. This helps to support fast turnaround time from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation. At SSC, technical and professional quality is maintained by active audit programmes, interval double reading of scans, and direct radio pathological correlation through surgical feedback.
The team of musculo–skeletal Consultant Radiologists provides 24 hour consultant expertise to interpret and report on all of the results of patients scan or X-Rays. In addition, musculo-skeletal pathologies can be immediately referred in-house to the Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, Neurosurgeons and Sports Physicians who form the core Consultant group at SSC.
