We have invested in high quality digital radiography, ultrasound and endoscopy including rigid (1.9mm and 2.4mm) and flexible (video and fibre) scopes.  To compliment these, we have regular access to hospital standard MRI and CT scanning, and all scans are reported for us by an RCVS Diagnostic Imaging Specialist to obtain the best possible analysis.

Radiographs are sent to me each week for free interpretation and I would be happy to assess yours if required.
