We have two main Ultrasound departments, one at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary (HRI) and one at Calderdale Royal Hospital (CRH). In addition, peripheral ultrasound machines are located on each site within the Early Pregnancy Assessment units, Ante-Natal Day Units, Breast Unit and Special Care Baby Units. An Ultrasound machine is also located within our satellite unit at Todmorden Health Centre.
The departments perform many varied examinations, from obstetric scans to complicated interventional procedures, such as prostate biopsies. The majority of the scans are undertaken by Advanced Practitioners, highly qualified members of staff who report their own examinations. As our Trust is a forward-thinking organisation, some of the Advanced Practitioners perform biopsy and drainage procedures, which has led to a reduction in waiting times for such treatments. There is a wide range of modern equipment on site, most being the latest technology.
- HRI - Lower Ground Floor within the Radiology department.
