We have a commitment to teaching Specialist Registrars from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, medical students from the University of East Anglia Medical School, sonographers from the University of Hertfordshire and radiographers from the Universities of Suffolk and Exeter. We provide practical mammography training for JPUH radiographers.

We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive and efficient imaging service to the population of Great Yarmouth and Waveney, along with the surrounding areas of Norfolk and Suffolk.

Radiology uses:

  • X-rays to produce images ranging from bones, joints, breasts and chest x-rays to more specialised procedures using dyes such as bariums studies of the bowels or studies of the kidneys.
  • Ultrasound to image for pregnancy, soft tissue organs like the kidneys and liver and more specialised procedures such as joints.
  • Computerised Tomography (CT) to image the soft tissue organs and joints in greater detail.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to image the soft tissues and joints and provide greater detail.

Radiology is essential in the investigation of injuries, a range of illnesses and the monitoring of the progression or response to treatment.
