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.

Your GP or consultant and some physiotherapists and osteopaths are able to refer you for a MRI scan.  We will always ensure your results are sent back to your doctor or consultant quickly, usually within 48 hours.  For more information please contact us on 020 8347 3899.
