What is an MRI scan?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging which is a way of taking pictures inside the body without using x-rays. An MRI scan is a safe, painless and non-invasive procedure.

During an MRI scan, the patient lies down on a table that slides through a large tunnel containing powerful magnets. It is this strong magnetic field that allows doctors to see inside your body in a way previously only possible through surgery.

It is suitable for every part of your body, including bones, soft tissues and the brain, and is one of the most advanced imaging techniques used to date.

Watch our video of our Clinical Director, Dr. Qaiser Malik, discussing why you would need an MRI scan.

Prices from £199

Vista Health have MRI scanners at over 30 locations across London and throughout the UK. Our competitive prices for private MRI scans are based on how quickly you would like your scan, and the location.  
Open MRI scans cost a little more than the conventional 'tunnel' scanners, but still remain affordable for patients who suffer from claustrophobia or those unable to lie flat for extended periods or not able to fit comfortably in a traditional MRI scanner.


Your scan images are available immediately after the scan. These will be provided to you on a CD which you will receive at reception before your departure. You will also receive the scan images electronically through your Patient Image Portal within 3 working days. A Consultant Radiologist will analyse and report on your scan. We aim to deliver all reports to your GP or referrer and to yourself via email within 3 working days.

Important: The report will come from a security email software called Mimecast.
