Solution for obese patients

The larger patient

We are all aware that people are getting larger. Often accessing diagnostic imaging can be a challenge for larger patients as MRI scanners have a limit to the weight and size of person that can be accommodated. The procedure can be uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing.

Why choose us if you are you are larger person needing MRI?

Our scanner accommodates persons weighing up to 35 stone (226kg). Your access is more straightforward as the scanner starts in the upright position, with a completely open front. This makes it much easier to get into the scanner, and be positioned. The examination can be performed in the standing, sitting or lying position depending on requirements, as the bed can be tilted after you enter the gantry.

It is much less stressful for you, particularly if you are claustrophobic, as there is nothing in front of your face.

Medserena Upright MRI Centres offer a range of MRI procedures and are recognised by all major health insurers. NHS patients are also welcome where prior funding approval is in place.
