Clinical radiology is the use of medical imaging methods to look inside the body to diagnose, treat and monitor diseases and injuries.  At St George’s, the radiology team uses a wide range of imaging methods to detect and diagnose cancer.  These techniques include plain films, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging as well as molecular imaging techniques. In addition to acquiring and reading scans, the radiology team also runs patient clinics, take biopsy samples and prepare patients for surgery. Real-time imaging can also be used to perform minimally invasive surgery, called interventional radiology.
