Radiology

Welcome to the Radiology Department at Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Radiography is one of the most important tools in modern medicine. The use of X-rays, imaging and ultrasound enable diagnosis and assessment that would otherwise be impossible. High-energy radiation also provides life-saving treatment in cancers and tissue disease. Radiographers have the technical expertise and understanding to use these advancing technologies to best effect.

We provide an extensive range of Diagnostic Radiology services at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, performing in excess of 69,631 examinations each year. Our services include:

  • Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Interventional Radiology (IR)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Plain Film Imaging
  • Nuclear Medicine (NM)
  • Picture Archiving & Communications Systems (PACS)
  • Ultrasound (US)

You can find out more about our MRI scans by watching our series of information videos.

A major strength of the Department is the high caliber of dedicated staff that makes up the Radiology team.  The team is led by Radiology Clinical Lead, Dr Katharine Foster; Professional Manager, Jean Cahalane; Service Manager, Dominic St Louis; Assistant Service Manager, Lucy Harrison and further supported by Consultants, Specialist Registrars, Radiographers and Administrative, Clerical & Support staff.
