Specialist Services

Our Specialist services are ideal for those who want to provide a full range of specialities to their patients, but do not have the capacity to do so in house.  

If your department needs additional specialist reporting to cover increased demand or perhaps absences or resource constraints, 4ways can provide additional capacity, second opinions and double read reporting.   

We use leading technology to support reporting of each specialism to ensure our radiologists are simply an extension of your own radiology department. Where we can, we use trusted AI solutions to enhance reporting, for example in our work to support Targeted Lung Health Check Screening programmes.  

Our Radiologists are experts in their fields and are supported by specialist Clinical Leads and ongoing learning opportunities.  

Get in touch with us today and we can begin to create a bespoke reporting solution to satisfy your needs and help you to support excellent patient care.
