What Is An MRI Scan?
An MRI scan is a safe medical examination that uses powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to generate detailed images of the body.
At Mega Scan, we use Hitatchi Airis open MRI machine; ideal for claustrophobic or larger patients, to examine any part of the body including:
brain and spine
bones and joints
Whilst it is deemed to be one of the safest medical examinations, there are precautions for patients with fixed metallic devices for example: cardiac pacemakers or internal fixtures of bone fractures.
A safety check questionnaire is carried out by a Mega Scan radiographer before the examination is conducted to ensure the complete safety of the patient.
