Comprehensive diagnostics and imaging

The Centre's facilities incorporate an extensive range of the most advanced technology and equipment to help diagnose and treat all liver and HPB conditions. Diagnostic tests include:

  • Liver ultrasound - performed in our imaging department under the care of our specialist liver radiologists
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan - used to produce detailed 3-dimensional images of the inside of the body, including any abnormal areas
  • Fibroscan – a non-invasive tool to assess liver fibrosis and liver fat
  • ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography) – for therapeutic bile duct and pancreatic duct interventions
  • Cellvizio (a probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy system) - generates 'optical biopsies', providing real-time microscopic video images of bile duct tissue or pancreatic cysts
  • CT (Computerised Tomography) scan – used to identify and stage liver tumours and damage
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans used to characterise liver tumours and helps to differentiate between different types of tumours
  • Liver biopsy – sometimes required to determine the cause and degree of liver disease
  • EUS (endoscopic ultrasound) – a special endoscope uses ultrasound to produce detailed images of the bile duct, pancreas and liver

Using the latest endoscopic techniques

In London's first private JAG accredited centre we are able to offer the full range of upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopic investigations and treatments. There are no waiting lists and you will normally have your report the same day.

Within our centre we have a large team of dedicated endoscopy nurses and colorectal clinical nurse specialists, who help each patient through their procedures in the endoscopy suite.
