MRI

River Radiology’s state-of-the-art GE 3.0 Tesla scanner performs high-resolution scans in minutes whilst you relax on a comfortably padded table. There is no need for oral sedation because our scan room has been specifically designed to put you at ease.

MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) uses a very powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of almost every internal part of the body. This process is completely safe and involves no harmful radiation whatsoever.

Patient Preparation

• Advise our booking staff if you have any internal metal implants or electronic devices
• Before your MRI scan, eat, drink and take any medication as normal, unless advised otherwise.
• Please arrive 15 minutes prior to you scan so you can fill out a safety questionnaire prior to your MRI scan
• Please allow 45-60 minutes for your examination in total
