Our state-of-the-art diagnostic facility is equipped with the most advanced imaging technology available. This incredible facility is open 7 days a week and is attended by our highly skilled and committed staff.
3T MRIMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that is often used to create images on a computer of tissues, organs and other structures inside your body. It uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce these detailed images. The MRI scanner consists of a wide tube that contains a series of powerful magnets.
The Diagnostic Centre’s MRI is 3T which stands for 3 Tesla. Tesla is the industry standard for measuring the strength of the magnet. This strong magnet offers us the ability to scan faster and with greater detail than the majority of scanners generally available in the UK, which are 1.5T.
High Definition CTA CT scan is carried out by using a special X-ray machine that produces cross-sectional images of the body.
A CT scan can be used to diagnose or monitor many different health conditions, including cancer and heart disease. It is often used to provide information prior to another procedure taking place, such as surgery or radiotherapy treatment.
The Harley Street Clinic Diagnostic Centre’s CT scanner offers the latest “high definition” capability.
Digital X-RayAn X-ray is a commonly used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or cancer.
At The Harley Street Clinic Diagnostic Centre we have digital X-ray, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. This makes the process quicker and enables the images to be digitally transferred and enhanced.
UltrasoundAn ultrasound scan uses high frequency sound waves to create real time images of the internal structures of the body. As sound waves are used rather than radiation, the procedure is believed to be completely safe.
Ultrasound waves are directed at your body using a small handheld sensor that is moved over the surface of the skin and generates sound waves. When the sound waves hit an object, they bounce back as an echo of varying strength. A computer converts the reflected ultrasound echoes into an image.
