Candover Clinic offers the most up to date MRI and CT technology delivering high quality imaging using wide aperture scanners for maximum patient comfort.
Our diagnostic centre includes the latest ultrasound, X-ray, cardiology, ophthalmology and urodynamic equipment.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
Candover Clinic owns and operates an ultra modern MRI scanning facility within the outpatients unit. Our ultra-modern 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 MRI unit is fully staffed with UK accredited MRI specialist radiographers. The purpose-built 140 square meter facility was designed with attention to detail and the direct input of the hospital’s radiologists and MRI specialists. Built specifically to optimize the patient’s comfort and the radiologist’s efficiency, the MRI suite houses a newly commissioned Siemens MAGNETOM Area 1.5T MRI scanner. The wide 70 cm bore of Candover’s MRI scanner provides greater comfort for patients.
CT (Computerised Tomography)
Situated in a spacious, light scanning room our CT scanner also has a wide bore providing much greater comfort for claustrophobic patients. The unit’s “64 slice” detector provides super fast 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 CT Scanner incorporates ultra modern detectors for image detection and noise reduction. The equipment is also low dose technology for maximum patient X-Ray safety.
We have two new high specification ultrasound machines at Candover Clinic and can often provide a “one-stop” service if scanning is required during a consultation.
Candover Clinic operates a new dedicated private patients X-Ray Room for all “plain film” imaging.
