Discovery CT7500HD computerised tomography (CT) scanner

Specialist equipment

Continuing investment in the latest equipment means patients benefit from the best diagnostic tools available:

  • The Discovery CT7500HD computerised tomography (CT) scanner gives quicker scan times, with improved image quality for all areas of the body while reducing the radiation dose by 50%. Clinicians can now run full cardiac CT scanning, and analyse fine vessels and structures they could not visualise with previous CT Scanners. A full body scan can be carried out in just 10 seconds.
  • Their newly refurbished angiography suite offers the most up-to-date imaging currently available in London. They are able to carry out the full range of cardiac interventional diagnostics and treatments using stunning quality 3D imaging. Higher quality imaging helps their consultants make a more confident and speedy diagnosis. 

  • Electrophysiology studies and cardiac ablation allow for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias using most advanced 3D mapping possible today.

Diagnostic services

All investigations are performed by trained specialists under the direct supervision of a consultant:

    • Electrocardiograms (ECGs) (resting and conventional treadmill); ambulatory ECGs/Holter with 1-7 day long-term reveal device

    • Stress echo imaging

    • Bubble studies

    • Echocardiograms with Doppler, 24hour blood pressure monitoring

    • Myoview exercise tests, giving greater sensitivity  to detect  minor cardiac defects

The hospital offers a wide range of procedures including:
