Diagnostic Services at Woodland Hospital
The Imaging Department is staffed by experienced professionals and is equipped with state of the art equipment, including its visiting 64 slice CT scanner, static Siemens 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner, CR X-Ray System, Ultrasound and Digital Fluoroscopy. We also offer a private patient Cardiac ECHO service on a Tuesday evening run by an experienced Cardiac Physiologist.
In 2018, we opened our new MRI department with a Siemens MAGNETOM Aera 1.5T open bore MRI scanner. The roominess of the 70cm bore accommodates a large variety of patient shapes, sizes and conditions. The super-short magnet allows many studies to be completed with the patients head at the periphery, or outside of the scanner allowing for claustrophobic and anxious patients. We can provide music via CD during scanning and we always receive extremely positive feedback.
We accept referrals from GPs and other registered practitioners.
