Diagnostic Imaging

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

Candover Clinic owns and operates an ultra-modern, 1.5 Tesla MRI scanning facility within the outpatients unit. Our MRI scanner is the only, wide bore, short length unit in the area. The scanner central hole is over a third bigger than other scanners, significantly reducing the feeling of being in a small space during imaging. The facility is fully staffed with experienced, UK registered MRI Specialist Radiographers and we are able to perform a wide range of imaging from various specialities. All scans are reported by one of our Consultant Radiologists.

Arranging a scan

We welcome patients from a wide variety of referrers, whether you have seen one of our consultants at the Candover Clinic or a specialist elsewhere. If you haven’t yet seen someone we can usually help organise a scan either via your own GP or our private GP here at the Candover Clinic, just get in touch to find out more.

We are recognised by all major insurers and offer very competitive self-pay prices.

CT (Computerised Tomography)

The system provides rapid imaging allowing for much shorter patient breath holds compared with other models. The longer couch movement combined with short scan times enables scanning of entire body in one run.

The Siemens Somatom Definition AS Scanner incorporates modern detectors for superior image quality whilst minimising the amount of x-rays required.

Arranging a scan

We welcome patients from a wide variety of referrers, whether you have seen one of our consultants here at the Candover Clinic, a specialist elsewhere or through the NHS. Due to the nature of CT scans, we normally require that you have seen a consultant beforehand, but there are some scans that can be organised by your own GP or our private GP. Please get in touch to find out more and we will be happy to guide you through the process.
