The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre is the new, purpose designed home for the world-renowned cardiac MRI service which we have operated from the Heart Hospital Imaging Centre on London’s Westmoreland Street since 2010.
The centre has earned a reputation as world leader in clinical and research cardiac MRI, thanks to a team of highly respected and experienced cardiologists and clinical specialists.
All scans are performed under the direct supervision of our trained specialists and they will issue your scan to your referring doctor within 24 hours. The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre pride themselves on providing a choice of convenient appointments, with referrals accepted from all clinical practices.
The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre is a specialist MRI facility which develops and utilises the very latest techniques for imaging of the Heart, Brain, Spine and Peripheral Nervous System, as well as offering specialist imaging for abdominal, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions. We offer the full spectrum of imaging, from routine examinations through to cutting edge techniques, some of which are not offered elsewhere.
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR)
Cardiac MRI is commonly regarded to be the most accurate non-invasive method of assessing the structure and function of the heart, often providing valuable information which may not be achievable using other imaging methods such as x-ray or ultrasound. Cardiac MRI can provide clinical information which enables early diagnosis of abnormalities of the heart and guide physicians in decision making for effective treatment.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for patients with Cardiac Pacemakers and Implanted Cardiac Devices
For many years, cardiac pacemakers and other implantable cardiac devices have prevented patients from benefiting from MRI scanning, due to potential risks posed to the device by the strong magnetic fields associated with the MRI scanner. The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre are pleased to be able to offer a new MRI scanning service to patients who have implanted cardiac devices that may have prevented them from having MRI scans elsewhere. Using the latest technology, our expert multidisciplinary team of cardiology and radiology consultants, cardiac technicians and specialist radiographers work in collaboration with the cardiac device manufacturers to enable to us to hold regular scanning sessions for patients with cardiac devices who may require MRI scans of any body part.
