MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
MRI is a non-invasive method of using magnetic fields and radio waves to produce multiple detailed images of the inside of the human body. It is one of the most accurate was to examine the soft tissues around the body. MRI is becoming the preferred choice of imaging as there is no radiation involved.
MRI is used as an examination tool to help diagnose medical conditions and disorders such as: bladder problems, blood vessel plaques and blockages, bone and joint damage or infection, brain and organ tumours, central nervous system disorders, eye abnormalities and reproductive system problems.
We are able to perform the following scans:
- Routine orthopaedic (knees, shoulders, hips, any joint)
- Routine neurology (spine, brain)
- Non-contrast angiography, carotids, sagittal sinus
- Breath-hold abdominal work
- Rectal and colon
MRI procedures will only be carried out on receipt of a completed and signed doctors/GP referral.
