You will be registered at reception to ensure we have recorded all your details correctly at time of booking. Then one of our skilled Radiographers will meet with you to undertake a final safety check and explain to you the MRI scanning process.
Changing facilities are available if required. You will also be asked to remove any jewellery, watches and hearing aids and must not take electronic pagers, credit cards or mobile phones into the scanning room. These items will be locked safely away for you during the MRI scanning process.
After changing, you will be escorted by the Radiographer to the MRI scan room, where you will be made comfortable on the MRI couch.
A special receiver coil will be placed around the part of your body being examined and you will be positioned within the magnet.
At all times you will be able to communicate with the Radiographer who is undertaking your private MRI scan. During the scan, you will hear a series of noises.
Before leaving the centre, you will be given a CD with your images from your private MRI scan.
Your scan images will also be sent to our reporting Radiologist with relevant sub-specialty experience, who then generates a report within one to two business days.
You will be notified as soon as this report has been issued to your referring clinician and you can contact them to discuss the diagnosis.
