The RNOH aims to be a world-leading orthopaedic hospital with the best patient care and staff experience in the NHS

Imaging Services

The RNOH offers a complete range of radiological and scanning services to support all clinical areas within the Trust for both private and NHS patients.

Range of Services

The Stanmore site offers MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, fluoroscopy, ultrasound (US) DXA and x-ray examinations. For further information on any of these services, go to:

  • Scanning Department (MRI, CT, Radio-isotopes or nuclear medicine)
  • Radiology Department (US, fluoroscopy and plain film or x-ray examinations)
  • DXA (Metabolic Unit) (osteoporosis examinations)

The department at 45 Bolsover St, London, offers x-ray and US examinations. For further information on any of these services, go to Bolsover Street Imaging and Orthotics Department.

Access: All the imaging services are available to any NHS patient seen at the RNOH Trust, following referral to us for imaging. We make every effort to accommodate patient requests for specific appointment times where possible, but do have very high demand for our services and please be aware we are required to have completed all imaging within a certain time. We may have to ask you to prioritize your appointment with us.

Private patient referrals are also accepted throughout the services, usually by appointment but as a walk-in service for x-rays at both the Stanmore and Bolsover Street sites. Please contact the Private Patient Coordinator, or the relevant department reception, to make appointment arrangements or for any further information.

The only direct GP access to our services is offered for osteoporosis scanning (DXA) in the Stanmore site Metabolic unit. DXA scan results will be sent to the referrer and an appointment with our Metabolic Consultant, Dr Richard Keen, is available for patients with a high fracture risk. For further information on referrals see DXA (Metabolic Unit).
