A wide range of diagnostic services are available including x-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI Scanning. We aim to provide a rapid access service for many specialties across our sites and often same day appointments are available.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of the organs in the body.
CT Scan Imaging
Our scanning service encompasses all types of body, orthopedic and neurological scans as well as more specialized examinations. Additional Interventional procedures that we perform such as CT Guided Biopsies and Radiofrequency Ablation require a stay in hospital. Common CT examinations include:
Angiography generally involves using a catheter (thin, flexible tube) to introduce liquid dye into blood vessels to increase the visibility of arteries on X-rays. The most familiar procedures of this kind are ablations, coronary angiography and coronary angioplasty. With specialist staff using leading-edge equipment we can perform all these procedures and more (see below). Typically performed under local anesthetic, angiography normally requires a day visit and occasionally an overnight stay
Coronary angiography is used to assess the flow within coronary arteries. Using a miniaturized ultrasound probe, an image of the vessel wall can be generated that can then be used to determine the best strategy for treating narrowing of the coronary arteries
