Radiology (X-Ray Services)

Radiation (such as x-rays) or other imaging technologies (such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging) is used to diagnose or treat disease.

Your doctor or nurse will be able to explain the purpose of the examination to you. Information will also be included with your appointment letter.

The Radiology Department is located on each of the two main sites within the Trust:

  • Maidstone Hospital; and
  • Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury.
