What clients say about me

"I was very satisfied with the provided service in all its aspects. First of all I appreciate how easy it was for me as an end-user (not good in an IT matters) to send the radiology pictures to the respective doctor. Also short report on successful payment and other reports about progress of works ensured me about credibility of this portal. The report from Professor Edwin van Beek was clear and easily to be understood also for me as a non-medical person. I feel that I got from Professor van Beek all information that I sought and even more. The report from Professor van Beek exceeded my expectations. I would like to thank Professor van Beek for his work, his opinion and his comprehensive report. Monika Cambalikova, Slovakia "

About me

Working in the field of Diagnostic Imaging since 1990, first for PhD in the diagnosis and management of pulmonary embolism, subsequently underwent Radiology training.
Moved to UK in 1999, and established PET service as well as pulmonary MRI programme.
In 2004 I moved to the USA, where I worked as professor in Radiology, Medicine and Biomedical Engineering. I set up a cardiac CT programme there and was heavily involved in cardiac and pulmonary imaging research.
In 2009, I took up my current position as Chair of Clinical Radiology and Consultant Cardiothoracic Radiologist at the University of Edinburgh. My main interests are lung diseases, pulmonary vascular disorders and cardiac diseases. This includes Oncology in the chest.

    I received a very well written report from Professor van Beek which addressed my concerns. I would recommend his service to anyone who would like reassurance and more information from previous imaging. I am so pleased that Professor van Beek read my scans, and produced a report that articulated details in a patient friendly language. He is an asset to diagnose.me and a valuable resource to patients looking for more information. Best Wishes and thank you Professor.

    Professor van Beek delivered his report well within the published timescale. The report was written in an excellent style that gave me a much better understanding of previous test results. Having this additional information has been extremely helpful to me. I also took the opportunity to ask Professor van Beek a further question on an item in his report. He responded quickly and had the great skill of understanding what I was really asking for and articulating the reply in a clear and concise format. Thank you for your help.
