Specialist Neuroimaging in Queen Square

The Queen Square Imaging Centre are experts in the field of neuroimaging, providing high quality scans of the brain, spine and peripheral nervous system, often using advanced imaging techniques which have been developed here in Queen Square, including Functional MRI.

Our vast experience and singular focus on neuroimaging, combined with the clinical support we receive from consultant and medical science colleagues means that we are often able to scan patients who may be prohibited from having MRI scans elsewhere due to medical implants. We are also able to utilise the full capabilities of our scanner and department in order to create a comfortable and safe environment for even the most anxious of patients.

Our unique relationship with the specialists of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery means that we are able to report scans and publish results the same day in all but the most complex of cases, enabling our patients to return to their consultant for their all-important follow up appointment without delay.

Specialist Clinical and Research Imaging at Chenies Mews

Located nearby in London’s Bloomsbury, the Chenies Mews Imaging Centre is predominantly our specialist cardiac MRI unit.  However, we are pleased to be able to also use its state of the art scanning equipment to expand the neuroimaging services we may offer to patients from Queen Square.

This modern facility offers ultra-high resolution 3 Tesla (3T) imaging, and through a unique collaboration with our cardiology colleagues, a novel MRI scanning service for patients with cardiac pacemakers and other implantable cardiac devices.  We are pleased to be able to offer a safe scanning service to these patients whom historically, have been unable to access MRI before.

For patients referred to this site from Queen Square, the same seamless and fully coordinated service is guaranteed.

Letter to the Queen Square Imaging Centre

I really cannot thank you enough for the enormous kindness you and your staff showed me when I came in for my MRI last week. I was extremely nervous, having panicked during an MRI scan before at another hospital. However, your staff put me at ease from the first moment I stepped foot in your department. I have now had my MRI done, and can go back to see my consultant with all of the information he needs. Thank you.
