CT scans

CT is short for Computerised Tomography; these scans are specially designed to capture images of your body. A CT scanner uses a computer to present cross sections of your body and internal organs for a specialist to review. Please note you cannot refer yourself for a CT scan, you must be referred to us by your GP or medical practitioner.

MRI scan

MRI scans are specially designed to capture images of your body or internal organs. Your GP or a medical specialist may refer you to have an MRI scan to help them better understand your condition and to help them provide you with the right course of treatment.

An MRI scan can be used for a variety of reasons, including imaging:

  • Bone and joint injuries
  • Brain and spine
  • Liver and pelvic structures.

Ultrasound scans

Your GP, physiotherapist or health professional can refer you for an ultrasound scan. All our scans are performed by Consultant Radiologists (Specialist doctors in medical imaging and diagnostics).
