Who will scan you?

Paul Strickland Scanner Centre has outstanding patient satisfaction rates, and our radiographers are consistently complimented for their friendly, kind and caring approach. Our team will ensure you are well looked after and put at ease. At the same time we are efficient, and you should not have to wait long. We have some of the latest CT scanning technology on the market at Paul Strickland Scanner Centre.

Your scan will be checked and reported by our head and neck cancer specialist, Dr Subhadip Ghosh-Ray, an experienced consultant radiologist.

Added peace of mind

Paul Strickland Scanner Centre is an internationally recognised leader in diagnostic imaging and monitoring of cancer, with more than 30 years' experience in the field. We are trusted by both NHS and private specialist doctors to scan thousands of head and neck patients every year at Mount Vernon Hospital and beyond, ensuring they can get the right treatment they need.

As part of our imaging routine, we carefully check not only your teeth, but also the adjacent soft tissues in your mouth. Should we find anything untoward, we have the experience and clinical links to quickly guide you towards the investigations and treatment you need. Lesions can sometimes be detected in the soft tissues of the mouth and around it. Finding them early can be crucial in ensuring successful treatment and having your scan with us provides added peace of mind.

How long will it take until your dentist has your scan?

Our team is flexible and we have fast turn-around times. We provide a complete report of all relevant findings within the area scanned. In all cases we liaise closely with your dentist to ensure we support your treatment plan effectively.  We provide your dentist with an image of your scan in a format that is easy to manipulate, to make it as helpful as possible for your treatment.
