Direct Medical Imaging

Direct Medical Imaging
Direct Medical Imaging
Direct Medical Imaging in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, is a private medical practice providing an open whole body MRI & dedicated extremity MRI scanning service, as well as ultrasound and X-ray.

Direct Medical Imaging (DMI) is open to everyone whether or not they are insured, paying for their own treatment or being funded by the NHS. Their aim is to provide a high quality of personal and clinical care and that the treatment will be delivered in a caring and professional manner within an appropriate and comfortable environment.

Open whole body MRI scanner
More space means less anxiety. A unique C-shaped magnet for easy positioning and a friendly, compact design create an atmosphere to put you at your ease. If you are nervous a relative or friend can sit in the room whilst the scan is being performed.

The scan consists of several sets of images and the total scan time can vary from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Dediated extremity MRI scanner
The E-Scan manufactured by Esaote is an innovative development in medical imaging that allows magnetic resonance imaging of the extremity joints; from shoulder to fingers, from thigh to toes.

Sold worldwide, the Direct Medical Imaging E-scan is the first within the United Kingdom.

Diagnostic Ultrasound (sonography)
Medical sonography (ultrasonography) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images. DMI scans are performed by Consultant Radiologists.

Ultrasound has been used to image the human body for at least 50 years. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tools in modern medicine. As currently applied in the medical environment, ultrasound poses no known risks to the patient.

X-ray scanning
X-rays are a wonderful addition to the world of medicine; they let doctors peer inside a patient without any surgery at all. It's much easier and safer to look at a broken bone using X-rays than it is to open a patient up.
