Our patients are at the core of everything we do
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging which is a way of taking pictures inside the body using strong magnetic fields and radio waves. An MRI scan is a safe, painless, and non-invasive procedure which captures high-quality images of inside the body. MRI scans are widely used to view the joints, muscles, nerves, bone marrow, blood vessels, and other body structures.
During an MRI scan, the patient lies down on a table that slides through a large tunnel containing powerful magnets. It is this strong magnetic field that allows doctors to see inside your body in a way previously only possible through surgery.
It is suitable for every part of your body, including bones, soft tissues, and the brain, and is one of the most advanced imaging techniques used to date.
Your scan images are available immediately after the scan. These will be provided to you on a CD which you will receive at reception before your departure.
A Consultant Radiologist will analyze and report on your scan. We aim to deliver all reports to your PCP or referrer via email within 3 working days.
