Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a large, powerful magnet, radio waves and an advanced computer to take incredibly detailed images of the relevant part of your body.

You may feel concerned about your MRI scan, but we don’t want you to worry. Our highly-experienced team are friendly and approachable, and are here to help and guide you through the diagnostic process.

At St Joseph's Hospital we host a MAGNETOM Sola 1.5T MRI scanner.

To book an appointment or speak to a member of the Advanced Diagostics team, please call 01633 820301 or click here. For more information on MRI and our guide prices, please see below. 

The MRI system from Siemens Healthineers combines 1.5T field strength with BioMatrix Technology. BioMatrix technology enables automatic adjustment to patient bio-variability, reducing unwanted variation and the need for rescans while supporting predictable scheduling and consistent, high-quality personalised.

As well as being a state-of-the-art complex MRI scanner with extremely high-quality images and faster scan times, the new Siemens Sola 1.5 T MRI is also shorter and wider, giving patients a more spacious feel.

Its multiple functions allow patients with breathing difficulties or claustrophobia to have their scan in a shorter time while maintaining the same consistently high image quality. The team offer patients mood lighting, music and a feature panel with relaxing cloud scenes, helping to create a calming environment.  

This means delivering the highest quality images which provide a high level of diagnostic confidence.
