Scans - X-ray, MRI, CT

If you're ill or unwell it can be a stressful and anxious time not knowing what’s wrong and how quickly you’ll be able to return to the activities you enjoy. To help your doctor identify what's wrong, part of the diagnosis process may include a scan, X-ray or pathology tests such as biopsies or blood tests.

At Spire Edinburgh Hospitals, Murrayfield and Shawfair Park, we can provide rapid access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and pathology services for all patients whether privately insured or self-funding. Our services include:

Please note that we do not offer paediatric radiology.


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.

Each method of scanning is painless, non-invasive and accurate – the range of scanning capabilities across Spire Edinburgh Hospitals 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.

As an integrated department within our private hospital settings, help is at hand should onward referral, treatment, surgery or advice be required following the results of your scan.
