Is it safe?

  • An MRI scanner makes use of magnetic fields instead of X-rays and current research shows MRI scanning is safe, making it ideal for whole body imaging.
  • MRI is not suitable for imaging hollow organs such as stomach intestines and bladder and will not include the limbs as it is a screening examination – if you have concerns regarding these areas please feel free to discuss this when making your appointment.
