After your Private Dr consultation at London Private Ultrasound, our doctors might refer you for a diagnostic imaging procedure such as Ultrasound Scans, X-Ray Scans or MRI Scans if needs be.
A referral is required for X-Ray and MRI scan. The referral will be completed by our Drs with no extra charges only after your consultation. This is to ensure that the test is clinically appropriate for your need.
