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


internal organs


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.
