At LycaHealth Orpington, patient safety is our top priority. While MRI is generally safe for most patients, individuals with heart pacemakers or certain surgical implants may not be eligible for the scan. We ensure your safety by conducting a thorough assessment before the scan. Our experienced radiographers will guide you through the process and address any concerns you may have.
During this scan, you will lie on a comfortable bed that will pass through the scanner. Our radiographers will ensure your safety throughout the procedure and you can communicate with them via intercom. We understand that some people may experience claustrophobia, and our clinicians will provide support and reassurance to make the process as stress-free as possible.
Magnetic fields and radio waves used in these scans are safe and painless. Extensive research has shown that they do not pose any risks to the body, although there are certain conditions and implants that may prevent individuals from undergoing an MRI scan. It’s important to inform your healthcare provider about any relevant medical history before the scan.
A private MRI scan is a medical imaging procedure that individuals can choose to have at a private medical facility, often for quicker access, personalised service, and more flexible scheduling.
Opting for a private MRI scan allows you to have the imaging done on your preferred timeline, often with reduced waiting times. It might also offer a more comfortable environment and personalised attention.
You can schedule a private MRI scan by contacting a member of the team at 01689 490 111 or requesting an appointment online.
Depending on the area being scanned, you might need to follow specific preparation instructions. Commonly, you’ll be asked to avoid wearing metal objects and inform the technologist if you have any implants or medical devices.
