All scans at GibMed International Hospital will be reported by a GMC registered radiologist or a HCPC registered reporting radiographer (Ultrasound), in English and with a turnaround time of approximately 2-3 working days.
We may need to administer “contrast dye” during the procedure. Contrast materials help distinguish or “contrast” selected areas of the body from surrounding tissue. This helps physicians diagnose medical conditions by improving the visibility of specific organs, blood vessels, or tissues.
Types of contrast agents we use:
The team will check if you have any allergies, problems with your kidneys, are diabetic or asthmatic before administering contrast agents.
What if I may be pregnant?
It is important to know if there is any possibility of you being pregnant. Our radiographers can discuss the risks and safety measures before any X-rays are performed.
What about children?
Our healthcare team will take all factors into account when deciding if a child needs an X-ray examination, and the amount of radiation used is kept as low as possible.
All the radiographers working within GibMed International Hospital:
- Hold a BSC Diagnostic Radiography degree or equivalent.
- Are HCPC registered.
- Are regulated every 2 years to ensure they are up to date and aware of any advancements within radiology.
What if I don’t have the examination?
Our healthcare team will discuss any concerns with patients.
