MRI is equally useful in both soft and hard tissue investigations.  Images can be obtained in three planes of orientation giving a complete anatomical view with no radiation risk to the patient.  MR images can be produced in orientations not possible with conventional radiography.

We currently have a 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner onsite to help with our diagnostic process

Magnetic Resonance Imaging produces an extraordinary anatomical display in all 3 planes of orientation with no radiation risk to the patient.  It yields soft tissue discrimination unrivaled by any other imaging technique.  MRI is an invaluable tool in the management of neurologic and musculoskeletal diseases.

Applications of MR Imaging include:

  • Lesion localisation
  • Neoplasm assessment
  • Identification of vascular accidents
  • Anomalies of the ventricular system
  • Epilepsy investigation
  • Investigation of Chiari malformation
  • GME, NE and NME assessment
  • Middle ear disease investigations
  • Nasal studies 
  • Identification of structural abnormalities
  • Assessment of prolapsed intervertebral discs
  • Spinal cord trauma assessment
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Syringomyelia
  • Assessment of cartilage tears
  • Studies of synovial structures
  • MRI reporting service
