What is an MRI scan?

MRI means ‘magnetic resonance imaging’. It's an imaging technique using a strong magnetic field to produce high-quality pictures of soft tissue inside your body, for example muscles and ligaments.


MRI has been used for over 20 years in the UK. There are no known serious side effects, but you should take advice if:

MRI scanning
  • You're pregnant or may be pregnant

  • You have a cardiac pacemaker

  • You have an artificial heart valve

  • You have a cochlear implant, neurostimulator, or programmable hydrocephalus shunt

  • You have any metal implant in your body

  • You've had an injury to your eyes involving metal or metal fragments

  • You've had any operations on your head


What happens during an MRI scan?

You'll see a small team of radiography staff who'll care for you during your visit. One of the radiographers will carry out the examination.


Most scans take around 30 minutes but can take up to two hours, depending on the area being scanned.


      A radiologist will examine the images shortly after your visit and send a report to your doctor or consultant, normally within two to four days.
