Fluroscopy

We have the very best new digital fluoroscopy equipment at the University Hospital of North Tees. This equipment combines high image quality with a lower dose of radiation.

Our team of specialist carry out a wide range of procedures which often prevent the patient requiring surgery. An example of this is a uterine fibroid embolisation which is done rather than a hysterectomy.

Most of these procedures are either day case procedures or an overnight stay and result in a far quicker recovery for our patients. Other procedures, such as biliary stent insertions are carried out for malignant conditions. These allow our patients relief from unpleasant symptoms, such as jaundice, and often allow them to be cared for at home.
