Diagnostic Services at Woodland Hospital
The imaging department at Woodland Hospital is staffed by experienced professionals and is equipped with state of the art equipment including Digital Flouroscopy, CR X-Ray System, GE Logiq S8 Ultrasound, and OPG. We also have two image intensifier systems in the theatre environment which are used for imaging during surgery for multiple specialties.
All images produced at Woodland 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 twice a week and CT once a week.
