Med-Tel's Open MRI scanner at its Hendon Centre is the most patient friendly system available. As its name suggests, Med-Tel's MRI is completely open on three sides with no enclosed tunnels. This non-threatening environment makes ideal for children, larger patients or those with claustrophobia. It is also excellent for sports injuries as joint motion studies are not possible in tunnel type machines. This MRI is also the used for the identification and diagnosis of a wide range of head injuries and neurological disorders where easy access to patients during the scanning procedure is an advantage
The Centre is equipped with a state-of-the-art multi-modality imaging unit, which is supported by a team of specialist radiologists.

We use equipment that produces diagnostic images in a highly patient-friendly environment. Our equipment combines 20 years' of development of MRI technology with the latest advances in coil design and computing power. This leads to the highest possible quality of MR images of the brain, spine, abdomen, chest, pelvis and joints.
