Virtual consultation.

Virtual consultation.

All self-referring patients need to undergo a Virtual Consultation. This will be undertaken by one of our clinical team who assess each patient individually.

The Virtual Consultation will result in a series of clinical recommendations from our cardiologists so that an appropriate health screening package or scan can be offered.

VCL HeartScan.

VCL HeartScan.

A VCL HeartScan assesses your CT coronary calcium score, electrocardiogram, blood pressure and blood cholesterol. This is one of the most accurate methods for identifying personal risk of heart disease. This can guide on whether statins are of benefit and if lifestyle changes are required.

Cardiologists over the world now recommend coronary calcium scoring for those who are over 40 and at intermediate risk, as the best method for assessing current and future coronary risk.

VCL HeartScan+.

VCL HeartScan+.

Safeguard your future from heart disease.

A VCL HeartScan+ is a highly specialised contrast-enhanced CT scan which shows the coronary arteries in high detail and will indicate whether there is any coronary atheroma.

This is important as coronary atheroma may lead onto angina, heart attack, or death and with appropriate interventions the risk of these can be significantly reduced.

Our services.

VCL HeartScan services are available at our clinic and brand new CT scanning facility in the Surrey Research Park, Guildford. Our team of leading cardiologists work with advanced imaging techniques to produce detailed reconstructions of the heart and coronary arteries. These highly detailed scans usually avoid the need for further conventional invasive testing.

Our technology.

VCL Surrey uses the latest Canon Aquilion Prime CT scanner. Combining the latest scanner with our VCLoud network and the most up to date analytical tools (Heartflow FFRCT) means VCL Surrey can offer the best available scan quality at the lowest possible radiation dose, with rapid reporting by a faculty of leading cardiologists and cardiac radiologists.
