An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the human body without using X-rays.
It does this by scanning through the body, one small section at a time, to gradually build a three-dimensional picture, just as slices of bread make a complete loaf when put together.

Making healthcare better for the patients of Northumbria
Since 2004, InHealth has worked closely with Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to provide MRI scans for the local patient population.
The MRI service helps the Trust meet a strict deadline of 13 days from referral to report, by providing increased capacity and extended opening hours.
As a result of a strong and effective engagement between InHealth and the Trust, the new MRI managed service from InHealth was a seamless integration and is now an integral part of the radiology department at the hospital.
Since 2009, InHealth has been providing a first class MRI service to NHS patients at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Building on this partnership, InHealth were awarded a 15-year contract in 2017 to provide an exclusive, fully managed MRI service with 3 new MRI scanners that would support the growing demand for MRI services in the area and deliver a flexible and responsive service to maximise patient dignity and privacy.
My whole experience of treatment has been really, really good and to be able to have my scan so quickly, and on a Saturday, was amazing and beyond my expectations.
I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with NHS providers / hospitals / doctors etc over the last few of years. I’d just like to say that everyone I have dealt with at InHealth, over the phones and at MRI appointments, been the best, thank you. It can be very draining and daunting, being sick. The constant phone calls and appointments can make it very much harder. Anyone I have dealt with at InHealth has been so polite and all have a tone which make you feel like they care and you’re not just being a nuisance. Little things like that mean a lot, especially when you’re going through a hard time already
