Temple Street’s Radiology Department offers a wide range of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology services, for children from 0-16 years and is committed to providing a high quality service in a safe and friendly environment

In this regard the Department is responsible for:

  • providing a diagnostic imaging service under licence from the Radiation Protection Institute of Ireland
  • providing a radiological reporting service across imaging modalities
  • participation in professional training programmes for University College Dublin (UCD) and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) 


Temple Street’s Radiology Department offers the following services:

  • General X-ray – utilises small amounts of ionising radiation to produce x-ray images of internal structures in the body
  • Fluoroscopy – utilises ionising radiation to obtain real-time moving images of internal structures in the body. Contrast dye may be used also
  • Ultrasound – sound waves, rather than radiation, are used to image internal structures
  • Nuclear Medicine (NM) – scans are performed after the administration of a radionuclide containing a small amount of radioactivity
  • Computed Tomography (CT) – cross-sectional imaging of the body using ionising radiation
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – imaging of the body using magnetic fields and radio-frequency pulses, rather than ionising radiation
  • Interventional Radiology – invasive procedures, usually under x-ray or Ultrasound guidance, performed to diagnose or to treat a specific problem
