The Role

This is a busy Imaging department with a fully rotational 24/7/365 rota for Radiographers; there are opportunities to gain experience in Fluoroscopy, Intervention DEXA and CT with rotational duties scheduled across the modalities.

Applicants will have or will be working towards BSc in diagnostic Radiography and registration with HCPC.

Our X-ray rooms are fully equipped with digital units supplied by Carestream and Philips supplemented by Carestream CR. There are four GE Fluorostar 7900 mobile C-arm units used across theatre’s, and AMX4 Plus Xray units for mobile work. There is a digital Orthophos XG OPG unit and a Satalec XMind intra-oral dental unit to support the Maxillo-Facial and Community Dental Services. The range of procedures we perform include general exams incorporating A&E, In-patient, Out-patient and GP referrals, Oncology, and Orthopaedics.

The screening rooms are a state of the art Philips Allura Xper FD20C which has fully integrated CT and Ultrasound functionalities for Interventional and Cardiac studies and a Toshiba Ultimax for general Fluoroscopy studies and ERCPs. (Upgrade due Spring 2019)

The department has recently installed two new Siemens Somatom Definition CT Scanners, one 128 slice, with cardiac and interventional functionality, and one 64 slice. This has created a future proofed CT Imaging suite at GEH which is an exciting development for patients, staff and service users.

There are two Siemens MRI scanners; an Aera 1.5T and a Skyra 3T.

Our film free, digital environment is provided by Insignia PACS and this is under further development to allow dynamic image sharing across the three local Trusts, avoiding the need for IEP or CD image transfer.
