Radiology

Could you tell me how many of the following procedures were performed within Radiology during 2014?

a. Angioplasty Zero (The Trust Radiology department does not perform angioplasty procedures)
b. Fibroid Embolization 113
c. Diagnostic Angiograms 23

How many closure devices were used for each of those procedures? Zero (The Trust Radiology department does not use closure devices)

Cardiology

How many Diagnostic Angiograms were performed during 2014? 498

How many of those procedures used a closure device? To extrapolate this information the Trust would need to examine individual healthcare records and, therefore, the cost of compliance would exceed the appropriate limit under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.
