A DEXA scan is a test using X-rays to determine how strong and dense bones are.
Bones scans are conducted to analyse or diagnose problems with a person's bones by using state of the art imaging equipment.
An MRI scan uses a magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the interior of your breast.
Regular breast screening can detect breast cancer at an early stage. The earlier that treatment can begin, the better the chance a woman has to survive 20 years, or even longer.
The London Clinic offers breast ultrasound in addition to other imaging techniques to provide the most accurate diagnostic service possible.
Mammography is a X-ray of your breasts used to help detect breast cancer. It produces several X-ray images of your breast tissue that can help to detect even small tumours, even if you or your doctor cannot feel them.
The London Clinic has a state of the art imaging department providing our patients and referring doctors with a comprehensive range of investigations to cater for our patients’ individual needs. Our consultants have access to some of the most advanced technology available.
Nuclear medicine uses radioactive pharmaceuticals to produce images of various organs of the body as well as disease.
Ultrasound is a painless test involving the use of sound waves. Ultrasound scanners use high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the inside of the body. Ultrasounds are used to look for changes in tissue in organs. There are no harmful affects.
X-rays are a type of high energy radiation that can pass through the body. Dense tissue such as bone blocks x-rays, meaning that an x-ray image will show the inside of your body, using the body’s density as the image’s ‘dark’ and ‘light’ sections of the image. These images, interpreted by a radiologist, can diagnose many conditions.
