Bristol Medical Imaging

We provide swift and reliable private MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and X-ray scans in Bristol, South-West England. Established in 2008, we are a partnership of five highly experienced Consultant Radiologists based in Bristol with a wide range of medical imaging expertise, including:

Gynaecology, including endometriosis and mesh complications
Gastrointestinal, including pancreas
Hepatobiliary (liver, gallbladder)
Urology, including prostate
Renal (kidney)

Please firstly discuss having a private scan with your own GP doctor or medical specialist, who then needs to refer you to us. Subsequently, if you have any medical queries, including which diagnostic imaging technique is most suitable, one of our Consultants will be happy to discuss your queries with you directly.

Our Consultant Radiologists read and report your scans at Spire and/or Nuffield Hospitals in Bristol but are independent of these hospitals. The cost of your scan is set by the hospital and can be self-funded or covered by your medical insurance provider.

We do not provide neurological imaging (CT or MRI of the head) and MRI of the breast. Whilst we read and report plain film musculoskeletal X-rays (such as the spine, shoulder, and knee), we do not provide musculoskeletal CT or MRI imaging.

CT scan

Computerised tomography uses X-rays to produce high-resolution two-dimensional or three-dimensional images.

MRI scan

Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce high-resolution three-dimensional images.


Ultrasound uses high frequency sound beyond the range of human hearing to produce real-time two-dimensional moving images.


Plain film X-rays are used to produce two-dimensional images, used mainly for straightforward diagnoses.
