Spire Portsmouth Hospital has offered a wide range of private blood tests and investigations for many years. With our on-site pathology laboratory providing fast results, our facilities offer patients high standards of diagnostic care in the Hampshire, West Sussex and Isle of Wight region. Our scanning and pathology departments work with our Gastroenterology and Colorectal consultants who are all recognised experts in their field able to provide fast diagnosis and treatment.
Tests for bowel disorders include diagnostic tests such as endoscopy and diagnostic imaging such as CT and MRI scanning. These investigations are used in conjunction with specialised laboratory tests for disorders such as:
- bowel cancer
- Crohn’s disease
- coeliac / celiac disease
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Laboratory analysis of blood, stool and tissue samples is also used to diagnose and manage these disorders. Common tests include those for anaemia, iron and vitamin deficiency and the presence of blood in stools.
