A solution for patients who cannot tolerate conventional MRI due to Claustrophobia

Our MRI Centres in London and Manchester are equipped with truly open Upright MRI systems, providing a viable option for patients who may otherwise go un-scanned. We offer a full range of examinations from brain, spine, joints and extremities, to whiplash packages, prostate and pelvic floor examinations.

Since there is nothing in front of your face during the scan, there is no feeling of claustrophobia.

In fact, this truly open scanner is so open, that you will sit and watch TV during the scan. Anxious about MRI and still not sure this is for you? You can arrange to visit us and see the scanner before committing to a booking.

The truly open Upright MRI system also has the ability to scan any part of the body, from head to toe, in a natural weight-bearing position, including dynamic MRI studies such as flexion and extension views of the spine. This technique provides additional valuable diagnostic information often not available from conventional supine MRI.
