‘3T’ stands for 3 Tesla, and refers to the strength of the magnet used within the MRI scanner. Standard clinical MRI scanners typically have a strength of 1.5T and are capable of producing very good images for diagnostic purposes. 3T scanners are twice as powerful and capable of producing significantly clearer images, enabling more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. This is particularly important when examining the structures of the brain, spine and peripheral nervous system.

As well as being twice as powerful, our state of the art 3T scanner is faster and capable of producing images more quickly, which means less time being scanned. Our scanner, which is one of the most advanced on the market, also makes the experience more comfortable thanks to a wider and shorter bore, helping patients who are anxious to feel more comfortable about going into the scanner. We also use innovative surface coils which are light and flexible and replace the older coils which were heavy and restrictive. We have invested in the very latest technology so that we are able to provide the best quality scans while providing superior levels of comfort to every one of our patients.
