Radiology

DR x-ray room

The imaging departments at London North West Healthcare offer a comprehensive range of services, including general radiography, computerised tomography (CT), ultrasound (US), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine and interventional radiology.

Hard copies of x-rays and scans are now a thing of the past with our new state-of-the-art Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS), and voice recognition reporting. 

This enables clinical images to be stored electronically and viewed by clinicians on computer screens wherever they are.
