Cardiac MRI scan
MRI stands for magnetic resonance imaging. Our specialist unit is dedicated to imaging the heart.
Each examination takes between 30 and 90 minutes.
After your scan is over, a specialist analyses the results and prepares a report, which is forwarded to the doctor who requested your test.
The complexity of a heart MRI can vary tremendously.
Often, an injection into a vein in your arm is needed, and some of the scans need preparation for a day or two. If preparation is needed, the details will be included with your appointment letter.
Some people may not be able to have certain types of MRI scans.
