MRI

Our MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is provided by Burgess Diagnostics. Please contact us so we can advise you of our availability for scans. Patients will initially be admitted to the clinic for a full physical examination prior to the MRI scan. In order to maintain the positioning during the scan the patient will require a general anaesthetic. Once positioned on the scanning table the process of obtaining the required images takes between 30 and 60 minutes. There are no side effects from an MRI scan and the procedure is completely harmless. Once recovered from the anaesthetic they can usually go home on the same day.
