The private healthcare Avicenna Clinic in Peterborough offers a range of diagnostic medical imaging technologies most commonly used to achieve a diagnosis and also used at the clinic to practice image-guided intervention procedures, designed to circumvent chronic joint pain, avoiding, if not delaying the need for surgery.

Medical imaging is used predominantly to view different parts of the body to diagnose, monitor or treat medical conditions. Imaging utilises non-invasive technologies to fully understand what is happening inside the body without any surgery or need for an operation. Different types – such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), ultrasound and x-ray – are used singly or together to give our consultants the best possible information about diseases, injuries (including sports injuries) and treatments.

Avicenna is focused on efficiency, accuracy and patient comfort and will only use the most appropriate imaging techniques for consultation and treatment.  Imaging at Avicenna Clinic is led by Dr. Hany Elmadbouh, a highly experienced musculoskeletal radiologist who will be happy to talk through the different approaches and ensure that you are completely comfortable with the choice of diagnostics and treatment available to you.  Dr. Hany is one of the only practitioners in the U.K for Open MRI guided-injections and is able to offer this service exclusively at the clinic.

Private x-ray imaging in Peterborough has never been so efficient as Avicenna uses the latest Phillips x-ray digital machine which can deliver instant results. Ultrasound scanning, too, is provided using the latest state-of-the-art equipment.
