What is something is found during my medical or in my results?

  • If you prefer we can send the information to your GP for them to arrange further assessment.

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.

Disclaimer

  • Screening provides only a snapshot of your current health status, but cannot always predict future illness. We cannot guarantee the identification of every illness.
  • It is important therefore to undertake regular health screening and to report any new, changing or persisting symptoms to your own GP for further assessment.
