MRI scan

Our MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine builds up pictures of an internal cross-section of part of the body. It contains a tunnel, about four feet long, through which you will pass through on an attached couch. 

The MRI scan uses a magnetic field and radio waves, together with an advanced computer system to build up a series of images, each one showing a thin slice of the area being examined. These images are very detailed and can show both bones and soft tissues in the body and can therefore give a great deal of information.
