Microvascular Imaging

Specialist tests are carried out at our Microvascular Imaging clinic to provide information about a patient’s small blood vessels and blood flow. The results of the studies help consultants to diagnose a wide range of conditions.

You can get more information about the work we do in the clinic at our Microvascular Service page.

Staff you are likely to meet

When you arrive at the clinic, you will be greeted at reception by a member of our team. A Clinical Scientist and/or Clinical Technologist will then perform the measurements.

We want your visit to be as pleasant as possible so if you have any questions, please call us or speak to a member of staff before your test begins.

Things you need to know

For accurate assessments it is important that you read and follow the preparation notes in your appointment letter. For example, you may be asked not to smoke or drink coffee, tea or cola in the hours before your study is due to start.
