The MRI scanner is generally shaped like a large circular donut with a tunnel passing through it. A table, on which you lie, slides into the tunnel.
Both ends of the scanner are open and will not close. We can even provide you with access to our music database or even watch your favourite movies on our newest MRI machine.
Our staff can see and talk to you from the control room throughout the entire scan.
You will be provided a buzzer, when you squeeze it, a noise will alert the radiographer and you will be able to talk to the radiographer whilst the images are being acquired.
The MRI scanner is very noisy; you will hear a knocking noise during the scan. We provide earplugs or headphones to reduce the noise to a safe level.
