MRI scans

A MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan is produced from magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body. There is a tunnel shaped machine used to generate the images. Scans can take anywhere between 15 to 90 minutes depending on what scan you are having.

MRI provides a service to a range of patients from outpatients and inpatients. If you are an outpatient please check in at North Wing Reception, Level 2, Red Zone.

You should receive an appointment letter and a safety questionnaire which should be completed and bought to your appointment.


If you have any queries, please contact the department on 01634 830000 Ext 5039.
