Upon arrival at the centre, you can hand over the prescription and previous treatment records to our front office staff who will then do the registration. It is advisable to wear clothing without metal fastenings. Alternatively we can provide a hospital gown or pyjama.
You will not be allowed to take or wear anything metallic or with magnetic strips into the scan room. A locker is provided for your valuables. You can hand over the key to the Radiographer or to the person accompanying you, as it is metallic. You will also be required to fill in a questionnaire about your health and medical history, and asked to sign a consent form.
Although the scanner is open at both ends, some people may find this claustrophobic. If you are worried about this, please inform our front office. Our Radiographer will take special care to make you comfortable. Upon request, a friend or relative is allowed to accompany you into the MR room during your scan.
