Onsite MRI service | Highgate Private Hospital

Onsite MRI service

We are pleased to announce that we now have a permanent MRI scanner onsite, enabling us to provide this service for patients five days a week.

The extremity MRI scanner provides joint and limb scans including the knees, ankles, feet, wrists, hands and elbows.  With only the part of the body being scanned needing to be inserted into the magnet, the scanner eliminates the feelings of claustrophobia that some people experience when required to lie inside a full MRI scanner.

The open design also allows for greater patient comfort and enables us more flexibility in positioning your limb.  Scanning times are also faster than a whole body MRI and quieter with no loud pulses or noise.

The service is available to all patients, whether insured or self-pay.  Results will are sent directly to you, as the referring GP, usually within 48 hours.  To refer a patient please see referral information or contact us on 020 8347 3866.
