Our MRI scanner uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. 

MRI scans diagnose a variety of conditions, from the narrowing of the arteries of your heart to tumours. MRI Scans are very useful for examining your organs in detail, producing images that enable consultant radiologists to detect any abnormalities. 

During the scan, which you can book without a referral, you will lie on a table that slides inside an open ring MRI scanner. The scan is painless and you must lie still during the process.  

When booking your self referral MRI scan in London, you will be given a questionnaire with questions such as:

• Are you pregnant?

• Do you have pieces of metal in your body? You might have metal in your body if you have a stent, for example.

• Do you have metal or electronic devices in your body, such as a cardiac pacemaker or a metal artificial joint?

The duration of the self referral MRI Scan in London varies depending on the package or test of your choice.

An image disc and a copy of your full report signed off by a specialist consultant radiologist will be provided to you within 24 hours of your scan.
