Explore the services offered by our diagnostic imaging departments…
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to diagnose conditions that affect tissue and bone in any part of the body. The patient lies inside the scanner – a large tube – while the scan takes place.
An ultrasound scan builds up a picture of part of the inside of the body using sound waves that cannot be detected by a human ear. A small, hand-held sensor is pressed carefully against the skin surface above the area to be viewed.
X-rays are used by medical professionals to image various parts of the human body to aid diagnosis. Diagnostic X-rays are a controlled form of radiation which are able to pass through the body recording an image on a light-sensitive detector or computer screen.

I’ve never left a review in my life but feel it essential to give credit to the outstanding service & care I have received from your practice. Today I have had an MRI scan which was challenging for me as a claustrophobic but the guys who did the scan were absolutely fantastic. They put me at ease instantly & made it possible for me to go through with the scan. I can’t praise enough the care I have received from yourselves. The receptionists, the doctor, the efficiency in getting me seen promptly, it’s all been 10/10. Thankyou.

I can not speak more highly of the staff here. Everybody I dealt with and saw with others were incredible, be it the surgeon or bed chaperones.
