If you require an MRI scan you probably want the results on the same day as your scan. Cobalt now offers this unique service working with one of the most experienced MRI Radiologists, Dr Umesh Udeshi. The service includes:

  • A consultation with Consultant Radiologist Dr Udeshi before your MRI scan to ascertain your condition and elaborate on your referral letter if necessary. Your MRI scan will then be tailored to your individual needs.
  • After the scan, Dr Udeshi will discuss the findings with you.
  • The report and images can be available to take away with you on the day of your scan.
  • A copy of your report will also be sent to your referrer who will be able to organise any treatment required.

This service is available Saturdays 9am-1pm at no extra cost to our usual self-pay MRI prices, see here for more details.

A referral will be required for this service. Please ask your medical professional to send this marked ‘One Stop MRI and Report Service’ via any of our referral channels which are detailed here.
