When you arrive you will find us on the basement level. Our Reception Team will greet you and check you in. Part of the check-in procedure we ask you to answer safety questions and fill in other forms if necessary. You will then be introduced to your Radiographer or Consultant who will explain the scan procedure and answer any questions you have.
We normally allow up to 20 minutes for check-in. Feel free to use our complimentary Wifi and enjoy a hot drink and a biscuit (so long as this doesn’t interfere with your scan) during your waiting time.
Yes. We see many patients with claustrophobia, as well as those who are anxious or concerned. Our Radiographers and Consultants are trained to help you feel at ease.
MRIs, in particular, can appear daunting. Please bear in mind that:
• The scanner is open at both ends and is located in a spacious room. Many of our patients mention how much this helps reduce the feeling of being enclosed.
• Depending on what area of the body you are having examined, your head may even be able to stay outside of the machine.
• You will be given a handheld control that you can press at any time to stop the scan and come out of the machine.
If you would like to talk through your concerns with a Radiographer, don’t hesitate to contact us on 020 7042 1888. One of our Radiographers will be happy to talk to you and put your mind at ease.
It will be one of our top priorities. You will be able to stay with your child throughout their appointment, including during the scan. We recommend that you prepare your child of what to expect. You can do this using our clear and simple patient guides.
As an example, MRIs will require your child to lie in an open-ended tube. They will be asked to stay very still, so you could practise this beforehand. The MRI machine makes loud rhythmic noises, but the radiographer will give them headphones to cover their ears.
If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us on 020 7042 1888. One of our Radiographers will be happy to talk to you and put your mind at ease.
The scan images are available immediately after the scan. You can access your images through your online TREVOR account or CD which you will be provided with at the Reception before departure. A Consultant Radiologist will analyse and report on your scan. The report will be made available to your referring Clinician within one working day. Please note that, in keeping with clinical governance, we do not provide patients with a copy of the report. You need to arrange an appointment with your referring Clinician to discuss the results. Please contact us if you have any further questions in regards to your scan images or report.
In keeping with clinical governance, London Imaging Centre has a duty of care to each of our patients to ensure that they are provided the correct medical follow-up as a result of the scan they have at our centre; in the event they require further diagnostic tests or treatment. A scan report serves as a letter written from a Radiologist to a Clinician informing them of the outcome of the scan, leading to a Clinician advising on the required treatment. The report is interpreted by a medical professional to ensure the correct clinical diagnosis is made and appropriate steps are taken after your scan.
A copy of your scan report can be requested from your referring Clinician once they have discussed the scan results with you. If you wish your report to be seen by another medical professional, we will ask you to fill in a consent form and we will be able to release the report to this additional Clinician.
If you have not had a follow-up consultation with your Referrer and you wish to obtain a copy of your report from London Imaging Centre under the Data Protection Act, you may do so by consulting the ICO website which contains guidelines on how to submit a Subject Access Request to us. We then have up to 40 days to send the report for a charge of £10.
It may be possible for us arrange this if necessary. Please tell us your requirements in advance so we can try and make the arrangements with the Clinical Team including reporting Radiologist.
There is no harm in including it. It is important to provide as complete and as accurate information as possible. You are welcome to discuss your concerns with our Reservations Team or our Radiographer or Consultant before the scan. Please contact us on 020 7042 1888 if you have any questions.
