Private General Radiography in Greenwich

Our dedicated general x-ray rooms deal with all basic x-ray procedures including orthopaedic radiography, intravenous urography. The rooms are well-equipped, spacious and designed to accommodate all patients including those in chairs and beds. All images taken are scanned on to our digital PACS system, which can be put onto CD if required.

We are also equipped with a mobile x-ray unit for ward radiography and image intensifier within the operating theatre suite for x-ray guided surgery.

The Imaging Centre has two ultrasound units, including one situated permanently within the outpatient consulting suite for the use of our visiting consultants. A full range of diagnostic ultrasound examinations are available at the centre. These range from general abdomen and pelvic, obstetric and gynaecological studies, follicular tracking, soft tissue joints and breast imaging. We also provide specialist scanning ranging from cardiac studies such as echocardiography and colour doppler flow studies of vessels.

Ultrasound guided transrectal prostatic biopsies, breast biopsies and drainage procedures are also undertaken by our consultants.

Private Multislice CT in Greenwich

Our 160 slice scanner is capable of very rapid 2D scans of all areas of the body with scan widths down to 0.5 millimeter and very detailed 3D images. This means minimised discomfort and a reduction in dose for our patients due to very short scanning times.

We also carry out other techniques such as virtual colonoscopy, angiography for neck, brain, renal and peripheral vessels. Procedures to aid stroke assessment are available as are lung nodule monitoring, cardiac imaging including calcium scoring and ECG gated cardiac angiography. Dental imaging including implant measurements and maxillo-facial scanning is also available.

Our top of the range MRI scanner comes with a full range of dedicated coils and software packages. The dedicated coil arrangements allow us to carry out examinations of all body areas including all joints, brain, spine, abdomen, pelvic and MR angiography; including brain, carotid, renal. We are one of the few centres to offer breast imaging. Unfortunately patients with cardiac pacemakers or aneurysm clips within the brain are still excluded from MRI.

Private Bone Mineral Density Scanning (DEXA) in Greenwich

The DEXA scanner uses very low dose x-rays to scan the lower back and one hip joint. It measures bone mineral density and is essential in the detection of osteoporosis and other pathologies resulting in low bone mineral density.

The specialist report gives an indication of a fracture risk factor.
