SSC is the only centre in Ireland that has two dedicated clinical 3.0T MRI scanners delivering superior image resolution and quality, supporting a centre of excellence in the assessment and treatment of Musculoskeletal pathology as well as general imaging. SSC enjoys an active research affiliation and clinical sciences agreement with General Electric (GE) ensuring access to all developments in MRI and beyond.
The Radiology Department operates in a fully digital RIS/PACS integrated environment, ensuring all images are directly relayed to referring physicians. This helps to support fast turnaround time from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation. At SSC, technical and professional quality is maintained by active audit programmes, interval double reading of scans, and direct radio pathological correlation through surgical feedback.
The team of musculoskeletal Consultant Radiologists provides 24-hour consultant expertise to interpret and report on all of the results of patients imaging. In addition, musculoskeletal pathologies can be immediately referred in-house to the Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, Neurosurgeons and Sports Medicine Physicians who form the core Consultant group at SSC.
