Department of Radiology

About us

The Radiology Department is located on the Lower Ground floor. It offers an extensive radiology service to all patients attending Beaumont Hospital either as an in-patient or outpatient from across the country and in particular the Dublin North East Region.

St. Joseph's Hospital in Raheny forms part of “Beaumont Hospital” and as such the radiology services provided there are integral to the Beaumont Radiology Service Provision.  

The imaging modalities available include General Radiology, Fluoroscopy Neuroradiology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), Mammography, Ultrasound, Interventional Radiology - Therapeutic & Diagnostic, and Radionuclide Imaging. The radiology department also provide a service to the Cardiac Catherisation Laboratory, Theatre, Speech Therapy and Endoscopy as well as servicing every ward within the Hospital.

These services are provided by Radiographers, Radiologist, Physicists and Nurses alongside clerical, administration and portering staff. Beaumont Hospital is teaching hospital and regularly student radiographers and medical students will be present in the department.

Beaumont Hospital Radiology Department joined the National Integrated Medical Imaging System (NIMIS) in Aug 2011. This project is investing over €40m in providing state of the art electronic radiology system. NIMIS will make Ireland’s radiological services ‘filmless’ and enable secure and rapid movement of patient image data throughout the health service. Currently there are over 50 hospitals using the system, meaning that images and reports can be shared securely with relevant medical professionals across hospitals nationally.
