Your MRI Scan
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. A magnet combined with completely safe radio waves allows internal pictures to be generated by exciting part of the water molecules inside our body.
MRI is entirely painless and non-invasive. It involves no x-rays or other types of radiation. There are no known side effects. However, you cannot have an MRI if you have certain types of metal in your body. Modern joint replacements are made of titanium, which are safe, but we will check that you are suitable for a scan by running through safety questions.
The MRI scan images produced are incredibly detailed and useful to a clinician with the possibility to scan almost every body part. We offer high quality MRI scans and excellent service.
