About our service

The Radiology Department at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is one of the largest radiology serves in the country. It offers a full range of diagnostic and interventional services, from digital mammography to ultrasound, CT, MRI and interventional procedures.

The department strives to provide a high-quality, safe and compassionate service to patients through medical imaging. We aim to do this in an efficient and friendly manner ensuring privacy and confidentiality.

The department is made up of 18 consultant radiologists working in conjunction with highly qualified radiographers and nurses and supported by experienced administrators.

We are one of the largest radiology practices in the country. Each of our 18 consultant radiologists is international fellowship trained and specialise in 12 clinical areas. All have close links with University College Dublin (UCD) and the Faculty of Radiologists in Ireland in terms of teaching, research and education. Many of our experts also have additional training in imaging for different areas of the body, such as the abdomen (or belly), breast, bones and muscles, as well as for diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
