In an era when there is an increasing expectation that radiologists have sub-specialist skills (for example in MRI or interventional radiology), the High St Xray radiology team is highly qualified in the latest technology and techniques.
Our radiologists are also technologically savvy so that referring doctors, hospital departments and patients receive images and reports through a number of electronic channels.
