What is it for?

 A full diagnostic imaging service

Treatment overview

We provide a comprehensive range of both inpatient and outpatient investigative procedures in an efficient, comfortable and stress-free environment.

Equipment is continually updated and the technology is in place to offer the latest diagnostic imaging techniques as well as a full nuclear medicine service.

Nuclear medicine is widely used in oncology and also makes it possible for gastroenterologists to assess gut transit, orthopaedic surgeons to investigate joint infections and for endocrinology specialists to investigate endocrine function.

We combine the most advanced technology and facilities with leading radiology expertise to provide a first-class patient experience and world-class reporting.

Intra-operative radiotherapy (IORT) treatments for cancer

Intra-operative radiotherapy is when a very localised, high dose of radiation is given at the same time as the surgical treatment.

The London Clinic is one of the few sites in the UK to offer treatment with the Carl Zeiss Intrabeam® system - a miniaturised X-ray device which is located within our on-site theatres.

The London Clinic works with leading surgeons and oncologists in the field to offer IORT for these indications: 

  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer

Our new 3T MRI scanner

The London Clinic is the first private hospital in the UK to offer patients the latest diagnostic imaging with the new Siemens MAGNETOM Vida 3T MRI scanner.

Our radiologists use our innovative 3T MRI scanner to:

  • Produce ultra sharp imaging 
  • Visualise and monitor changes within the body
  • Provide greater patient comfort and reduce imaging time
  • Plan individualised therapy 

Out of hours service

We understand that many tests can often be clinically urgent, so we are pleased to provide a radiologist-supported 24-hour emergency CT, MRI, ultrasound, interventional radiology and X-ray service to all inpatients.

Our consultants have remote access to our systems so that they can immediately review the images and issue a report.

Medical imaging: review and storage

To ensure the highest quality viewing, reporting, distribution and management of clinical images, we offer a state-of-the-art picture, archiving and communication system (PACS).

This system enables our consultant radiologists and referring clinicians to have immediate access to all our images and reports.

Reporting is performed digitally and we store all images and reports permanently and securely.
