We offer a full range of MRI services including neuro, head & neck, body, sports, bone and joint, and paediatric imaging as well as prostate MRI.
Some patients can feel claustrophobic when having an MRI examination. Harbour Radiology uses the leading SIEMENS Magnetom AERA MRI with a wide bore, short and quiet design to help patients feel comfortable during the test.
MRI uses magnetism instead of x-rays to create images of the human body. This does not involve radiation and is not associated with any long-term health effects. For this reason it is often a preferred test for children. Because magnets attract metal objects patients are advised to remove any metallic items including watches and jewellery which may be affected before the test. All patients are required to fill out a consent and safety form before the test.
Preparation – there is no special preparation required before having an MRI scan. You do not need to fast before the test.
