Chiari-like malformation CKCS Whilst imaging of the brain and spinal cord have been the most common indications for MRI in recent years, the list of conditions where MRI has proven invaluable grows rapidly.

MRI has several advantages over other forms of imaging. It does not require the use of ionising radiation, and is non-invasive, unlike myelography. MRI can obtain images in any plane, and provides excellent contrast resolution, offering soft tissue information in exquisite detail. Oedema and inflammation, which are commonly associated with pathological change can be detected in soft tissues, but also within bone. Orthopaedic MRI is therefore one of the most rapidly developing fields of MRI.

MRI is an invaluable tool in surgical planning, enabling the surgeon to ascertain the extent of pathology e.g. tumour removal, and thus the margins required for adequate resection.


MRI studies can be submitted via the internet or post. For digital systems, DICOM format images can be sent directly over the internet by using our file delivery service.
