Diagnostic Imaging Scans

Spire Bristol Hospital offers an extensive range of tests and scans to examine any part of the body, inside and out. Our range of diagnostic scans are all painless, non-invasive and accurate, and the range of scanning capabilities at Spire Bristol Hospital ensure that any body area or structure, bone, soft tissue, vein and blood vessel can be scanned to investigate and determine whether further treatment or investigation is required.

Our diagnostic services include digital X-ray and mammography, ultrasound, complex CT and MRI imaging. All imaging, including complex studies such as specialist cardiac and abdominal imaging, use all modalities and are available 5 days a week.

All complex scanning is consultant-led providing an efficient, speedy turnaround time for all reports getting back to the referring clinician.

The hospital also offers a mobile DEXA and PET/CT service to complement its onsite imaging department.

News: Following a £1 million investment earlier this year, patients at Spire Bristol Hospital now have access to the latest generation Siemens 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner, one of the first of its kind in the country. Read more about this new investment.

Our qualified radiographers will guide you through your experience during scanning and a Consultant Radiologist will report their clinical findings to your referring Consultant or GP afterwards.

As an integrated department within our private hospital, help is at hand should onward referral, treatment, surgery or advice be required following the results of your scan.  For more information, call 0117 980 4010 or complete the form on the right-hand side of this page.
