The Leading Rib Imaging Specialists

The leading rib imaging specialists.

Helping patients recover from chronic rib and chest pain.

Dr M Ali Abbasi FRCR

Pioneers in

Rib Imaging

We have developed and refined techniques in Dynamic Ultrasound of the Thorax and ribs to improve the assessment of a wide range of rib and chest wall disorders. In particular, this has allowed for better descriptions and diagnostic accuracy for Slipping Rib Syndrome.  This examination has a CCSD Clinical Code of IM379. 

We continue to leverage our knowledge and expertise to refine and improve imaging of the chest and ribs by using advanced techniques in CT and MR.

Diagnostics

We work closely with our expert partners in surgery and rehabilitation to help patients receive the most appropriate and highest-quality care

 

This includes performing therapeutic techniques such as intercostal nerve injections and cryo-analgesia to help support strengthening and conditioning both pre-and postoperatively. 

Therapeutics

We continually review our practice in light of new observations and findings. 

 

We actively remain abreast of research developments in the anatomy, diagnostics and therapeutics of chest wall problems.

 

Our objective is to combine our skills in medical imaging with our knowledge of pathophysiology to further advance the understanding of the complexities of the chest wall and rib conditions

Dr Ali Abbasi is the only person in the county I trust to investigate patients with suspected slipping rib syndrome.

Every patient who sees him tells me how meticulous he is and how well he explains his discoveries. He always goes the extra mile and contacts me within 24hrs to keep me in the loop with his findings.
