Imaging at Wimpole Street
The London Orthopaedic Clinic has one DR (Digital Radiography) room in the basement at 79 Wimpole Street. This is a state of the art piece of equipment made by GE and was installed in June 2011 at the same time as the refurbishment of the building.
Digital radiography is a fantastic innovation in that X-ray images are produced and available to see within 4 seconds as no processing is required. This allows most patients to have their X-ray within 5 minutes resulting in less waiting time. Also as less radiation is required to produce a diagnostic image, the dose to the patient is minimal (depending on the type of X-ray required) and there is less need for patients to repeat the process as the equipment allows image manipulation when necessary.
All x-ray images are transferred to the consulting rooms via a computerised PACS system which means images do not have to be printed and consultants can view them instantly. We have the facility to burn patient’s images onto a CD.
The London Orthopaedic Clinic is pleased to announce the launch of a new in-house ultrasound service using the state of the art Philips Affiniti 50. From August 2015, we will be offering competitively priced diagnostic and interventional ultrasounds from our leading musculoskeletal consultant radiologists.
