LONDON — Mayo Clinic is beefing up its health care offerings at its base in England with a new cardiac imaging service.

Mayo Clinic Healthcare opened as a joint venture with Oxford University in late 2019. Mayo Clinic became the sole owner of the London clinic in 2020.

The clinic is located at 15 Portland Place in a historic six-story building across the street from the BBC headquarters in London’s high-profile Harley Street Medical Area. Mayo Clinic describes the international medical center as “the United Kingdom’s front door” to the Mayo Clinic in the United States.

The London site recently announced that it is adding 3D transesophageal echocardiography to its cardiac imaging offerings. The process uses a thin scope to view a patient’s heart via their esophagus.

"Using transesophageal echo, we can confirm an initial diagnosis of heart valve disease or provide a useful second opinion to guide a patient's next steps. When surgical repair or heart valve replacement is needed to regain healthy blood flow, our Mayo Clinic Healthcare team consults with interventional cardiology colleagues and surgeons in the U.S. to offer patients highly personalized recommendations," stated Mayo Clinic's Dr. Gosia Wamil in the announcement of the new offering.
