This one of the major diagnostic departments of the Hospital. Our goal is to provide high quality images of diagnostic value to our patients and referring clinicians within the shortest time possible. Radiology services can be accessed at our Accident & Emergency Unit for outpatients and at the main Radiology Department on the ground floor of the Eastern Wing of the Hospital.

The machine is capable of scanning the whole body e.g. brain, chest and abdomen. Additionally, high resolution scanning, image reconstruction and CT guided biopsies are possible.

Breast Imaging

  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Mammography

The Mater Hospital has installed mammography machines and the price of mammogram was reviewed to an affordable rate. So far mammography is the most reliable method for breast screening and early diagnosis of breast cancer .To allow the service to be accessible to all women, we now accept walk-ins for routine checkup on women above 40 years of age. Privacy of the patient is maintained by having only lady radiographers to perform the examination.
