Radiologists in Malta and Gozo


Radiologists specialise in diagnosing and treating diseases or injuries with medical imaging procedures. Procedures can include X-rays, ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT scan), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and nuclear medicine. Radiologists play a big part in treatments using radiation oncology and interventional radiology. They also take part in surgeries and procedures that require imaging guidance.

When to see a radiologist

You will usually be referred to see a radiologist by your GP or another physician. Radiology can play a big role in diagnosing the disease or injury. Most of the time, radiologists only interpret the image rather than giving you a final diagnosis. Remember to always consult with your GP if you’re unsure or experiencing any issues. You might be referred to see a radiologist in any of these cases:

  • Injury (broken bones or torn muscle)
  • Pregnancy
  • Cancer or tumour screening
  • Foreign objects in your body
  • Some infections
  • Accidents and trauma
  • Problems with arteries or other blood vessels
