World Radiography Day 2021

Celebrating World Radiography Day at RWT

World Radiography Day is celebrated on November 8th each year. The date marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.

Radiographers worldwide can use the day and the days around the date to promote radiography as a career, as a vital contribution to modern healthcare and as a chance to increase public awareness of diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy.

We are very lucky to have expert teams and the latest machinery. This year we unveiled a new CT scanner, which was installed in New Cross Hospital’s Emergency Department. 

The state-of-the-art scanner, which cost over £600,000 and was installed over a two-week period, had been shipped all the way from Japan. The machine has the latest imaging technology which generates the highest quality images at the lowest possible x-ray dose.

We are now planning to upgrade our current MRI scanners and get another new CT scanner.
