Medical Imaging (Radiology, X-ray)
The Medical Imaging department, also known as Radiology, is where you'll go if you need any kind of scan or X-ray. Consultant Radiologists (doctors trained in interpreting medical images) use different kinds of technology to view the body to help diagnose, monitor or treat conditions.
We have Radiology departments in both of our acute hospitals. The North Devon District Hospital has a relatively small but friendly department that also covers the radiology departments in community hospitals at Bideford and Ilfracombe and provides other imaging services in the community, such as ultrasound. The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Wonford) has a large Medical Imaging department as well as a Nuclear Medicine department and further services.
