At The Montefiore Hospital we provide fast access to a wide range of diagnostic tests and scans across our hospitals. We use the latest technology and techniques wherever possible, including MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound, to get the best outcome for you.
Booking your scans or tests with Spire can provide an early warning of health problems, help your doctor to identify and monitor conditions or rule them out. Once you’ve had your test, an expert member of Spire’s team can provide a diagnosis and advise on the most appropriate treatment if this is necessary.
The Montefiore Hospital’s imaging facilities include:
To book an appointment please call our imaging department on 01273 828 088.
We'll need a referral from either a consultant or GP with the request before booking any scans. If you're insured, make sure to contact your insurers beforehand to make sure you are covered. If you're self-funding, our team will be able to quote a price for the scan.
PET-CT is especially effective in diagnosing and assessing the spread of tumours as well as assessing response following treatment.
As well as being used in cancer, the PET-CT scanner can also be used to assess other diseases such as polymyalgia rheumatica, vasculitis, sarcoidosis, retroperitoneal fibrosis, pyrexia of unknown origin and dementia.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at The Montefiore Hospital.
