With the recent expansion of the Spire South Bank Hospital Imaging Centre, the hospital is now able to offer a fully in-house service providing a comprehensive range of scans and tests to examine any part of the body, inside and out.
State-of-the-art, in-house scanning service within our upgraded Imaging Centre
The new department features a CT (computerised tomography) scanner; a state-of-the-art, 160 slice, scanner installed in February 2014. The scanner is able to perform various general examinations including chest, abdomen, pelvis, head, heart and spinal scans.
The in-house MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner assists with the diagnosis and monitoring of many different medical conditions in every part of the body, including bones, soft tissues and the brain.
The Imaging Centre also provides X-rays, ultrasound and barium enema and meal procedures.
Patients not only benefit from some of the best imaging technology in the region, but also from the advantages of a private hospital setting. On-site car parking is free, next day appointments are available and personal service is paramount.
The scanners are set in light and spacious rooms to make the experience as comfortable as possible. Longer appointment times allow our highly trained and qualified radiographers more time to spend with patients so they are totally at ease before their procedure.
Our consultant radiologists will guide patients through the entire experience and will report their clinical findings to the referring consultant or GP.
The hospital has recently launched a new digital mammography imaging service within a dedicated Breast Care Centre which will complete the range of imaging services available.
