Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Imaging Facility (QMRI)

Contract Duration: Permanent

Hours: 37.5 per week

Salary Scale: £28,050 - £37,010 per annum

Reference Number: RAD/18/115

We are able to offer an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Radiographer/Nuclear Medicine Technologist to join our imaging team, and future proof their career, by obtaining experience in both general Nuclear Medicine and PET-CT.

The Radionuclide imaging department (RNI) is based at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and has two Gamma cameras, one with SPECT/CT capability. It performs a wide range of diagnostic procedures, including a radiographer led myocardial perfusion service. The RNI department also has a specific interest in dynamic gastrointestinal investigations and provides a regional service for endocrine and neuroendocrine tumour imaging.

The RNI department will soon relocate to new Royal Hospital for Sick Children and the Department of Clinical Neurosciences situated adjacent to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and will perform adult and paediatric investigations. 

The PET-CT scanners are situated in the Edinburgh Imaging Facility – OMRI, adjacent to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, on the Little France site. The imaging facility supports both imaging for biomedical research and clinical imaging. It has two modern PET-CT systems, a Siemens Biograph mCT and a GE 710 system. Both are supported by an on-site cyclotron.

You will operate in both PET-CT and RNI. This is an exciting opportunity for you to develop skills in both modalities. It is anticipated that both departments will continue to expand their research profile and you will contribute to this interesting, non-routine, aspect of the work.

A flexible approach to work is essential as there may be a requirement for extended working days and the post holder must be committed to providing the highest quality service to patients and colleagues. You will have a Degree in a relevant science subject or a DCR or BSc in Diagnostic Radiography, or equivalent. You should also have significant post qualification experience including Nuclear Medicine or PET imaging. Ideally you should have both Nuclear Medicine and PET-CT experience; however, we will provide training in either modality if required. DipIPEM(T) or equivalent is desirable, and registration with the Register for Clinical Technologists (RCT) held by the IPEM or the Health Professions Council (HPC) is essential.

Visits to the Departments are strongly encouraged. This post requires membership of Disclosure Scotland's PVG Scheme.
