3.0 Tesla MRI

We have two 3.0 Tesla MRI Scanners in full time clinical use for patients. With a shorter bore and flared open ends it offers exceptional comfort and greatly reduces anxiety or claustrophobia.

This means we can demonstrate and evaluate finer structures and vessels. Joint surfaces, cartilage, ligaments and muscles are seen in greater detail.
