Children's radiology

We're located on C level in Southampton General Hospital, near the main entrance and the children's outpatient department. Our specialist department is well-equipped with state of the art imaging equipment, including a digital fluoroscopy room, three general X-ray rooms, two of which are digital, and an ultrasound room. Children's CT and MRI scans take place in the cross sectional imaging department on B Level in the Wessex Neurological Centre.

Our team

Our team includes five consultant paediatric radiologists. Specialty registrars in radiology rotate through the department at different stages of their training. The dedicated radiographic team includes a superintendent who is also the specialist manager, 12 paediatric specialist radiographers and two paediatric radiographers. We have an administrative and clerical team supporting the department.
