MRI Scanning

We offer both 1.5T and 3T MRI scanning at our outpatient and diagnostic centres in London. MRI scans are a non invasive way to see the structures on the inside of the body, helping doctors diagnose soft tissue injuries to ligaments, cartilage and tendons, as well as fractures and breaks.

If you have had a sports injury or come to see one of our consultants, it is likely you will need an MRI to help confirm the diagnosis.

X-Ray

X-Rays are low dose radiation rays that pass through the body and can highlight breaks and fractures in bones. If your consultant suspects you have a fracture you will be referred to have an X-Ray. 

We have a walk in X-Ray service at our outpatient and diagnostic centres.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound scanning uses soundwaves to create images of tissues in the body. This is used to diagnose injuries in muscles, tendons and joints, and uses no ionising radiation. 

Ultrasound can also be used in treatment procedures, to aid a doctor to inject pain relief or other medicines more accurately.

MR Arthrogram

A Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram is a diagnostic test performed to visualise your joint, usually the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, or ankle. A common reason for requiring an MR Arthrogram is helping to find any damage to cartilage, ligaments, labrum, or laxity/instability of the joint.

Hydrodilatation

Hydrodilation is a simple procedure for treating shoulder conditions such as adhesive capsulitis, also known as ‘frozen shoulder’. During a Hydrodilation, the joint is anaesthetised and stretched, to help improve mobility and decrease the pain in the joint. It is performed using imaging guidance to make sure the injection goes into the right part of the joint. Your specialist will request either an X-ray or an ultrasound
