Welcome to my website!

I am Dr Vikas Shah, a Consultant in Clinical Radiology based in Leicester. Please click on the tabs above for more information about my practice and specialist skills, and details on how to get in touch with me.

Any feedback you have is most welcome; please leave a comment below or drop me an email (
