Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of the body’s internal structures that are clearer, more detailed and more likely to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods.
It is used to evaluate the body for a broad range of conditions, including cancer, heart- and vascular diseases and muscular- and bone abnormalities.
MRI is non-invasive and does not use ionizing radiation.
If you have been referred by your physician to undergo an MRI at our Cape Town MRI or Richards Bay MRI centres, you can make your appointment via our centralized MRI Booking Centre.
You can contact them on:
(021) 276 1253
Please note: This number is only available for MRI bookings.
Our staff will inform you of specific preparations that might be required for your MRI procedure.
Tell our receptionist about any health problems (incl. allergies, implants, stimulators, etc.), recent surgeries or if you have an aversion to enclosed spaces.
Also, share with them if you suspect you might be pregnant.
We offer various types of MRI scans, including Brain MRI, MR Angiography, Prostate MRI, Breast MRI and MRI of the spine to name a few.
