At Emersons Green treatment centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to diagnose conditions that affect tissue and bone in any part of the body. The patient lies inside the scanner – a large tube – while the scan takes place.
An ultrasound scan builds up a picture of part of the inside of the body using sound waves that cannot be detected by a human ear. A small, hand-held sensor is pressed carefully against the skin surface above the area to be viewed after covering the area with jelly.
X-rays are used by medical professionals to photograph various parts of the human body to aid diagnosis. Diagnostic X-rays are a controlled form of radiation which are able to pass through the body recording an image on a light-sensitive detector or computer screen.
Please be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
