About Beaumont Radiology Department:

The Radiology department consists of 21 Radiology consultants: 10 interventional and diagnostic radiologists and 11 diagnostic radiologists. The interventional radiologists provide a 24/7 interventional radiology on call service. A new 1.5T MR scanner was also installed in 2020 and the department has access to a further 1.5T scanner and a 3T scanner. Two 128 slice CT scanners are also recent installations in the department. There are two biplanar interventional suites, a recently installed single plane interventional radiology suite, digital radiography rooms, a fluoroscopy room, ultrasound, a dedicated ultrasound intervention suite and 2 x SPECT-CT. Overall the Radiology Department as a whole performs well over 180,000 radiological tests and procedures annually.

The department provides a wide variety of services, including stroke thrombectomy, aneurysm coiling, body intervention and large volumes of complex body and neuro-imaging. The department participates in several weekly, consultant led multidisciplinary team conferences. These include multiple body benign and oncology MDMs, neurovascular, stroke, neurology, brain and spine tumor board, ENT, ENT oncology, pituitary, stereotactic radiotherapy and clinical neuroscience. This is in addition to weekly teaching and case review from both body and neuroradiologists.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the teaching of a comprehensive Radiology programme which has been developed for all RCSI undergraduate students rotating through the department. In addition, the clinical tutor delivers regular lectures to the RCSI undergraduate body and participates in the varied Radiology educational activities delivered by RCSI. They will also be responsible for visiting elective undergraduate students throughout the year.

The department is a collaborator in several prospective and randomized controlled trials and publishes multiple original research papers, review papers, and case reports annually. Research is an integral component of the post. Under supervision and guidance from the neuroradiology consultants, the tutor will be encouraged and expected to participate in and lead on research related to radiology with the aim of local and international presentations as well as journal publications. They will be expected to attend a monthly research meeting alongside the Radiology SpRs where they will present progress on their research projects to the Consultant staff.
