The radiologists are doctors specially trained to interpret the images and carry out some of the more complex examinations. They are supported by radiographers who are highly trained to carry out many of the X-ray and other imaging procedures. Specialist registrars from the UCLH radiology rotation and Royal Free Hospitals also form an important part of the imaging department staff.
