About

We were the first organisation to provide Open and Upright MRI scanning in England and are the leading specialist upright and open, MRI service in the country. We are recognised as the leading centre for helping patients with special needs to complete their scan and help them with their ongoing healthcare and treatment. We were also the first MRI provider to give patients the option to self refer for medical imaging, without needing to visit their GP or consultant.

Our staff have the most experience in helping claustrophobic and anxious patients complete their scan in what can otherwise be a difficult event for patients elsewhere. We are also able to assist larger individuals who may not be able to comfortably fit in a conventional MRI tunnel, as well as those who are unable to lie flat for an extended period of time. Patients are very welcome to come and see our scanner prior to their scan, sit in the scanner if they wish to familiarise themselves with it and discuss their anxieties with our experienced staff to alleviate any concerns they may have at that point.

Our Open and Upright MRI scanners are completely different from conventional “tunnel” MRI scanners as well as other so-called “open” scanners where you are still required to lie down. Our highly experienced team of doctors who provide the clinical report for patients include both the leading musculoskeletal radiologists from The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust and the neurological radiologists from Barts Health NHS Trust.

We have extended hours of working across the whole week including weekends and are open 8am - 8pm every day.

Shortlisted for Diagnostics Provider of the Year two years' running.

Very positive, relaxed and supportive. I’ve struggled & suffered with MRI anxiety for years, but today I got through with distraction, the chance to sit up and have space around me and the kind support of the radiographer. She understood anxiety well! Thank you very much guys.

Friendly, efficient, helpful and an excellent experience. From the receptionist to the radiographers, all very helpful. Having been unable to use a conventional MRI “tunnel” machine, I was very relaxed in the upright MRI and would recommend the London Upright MRI centre to anyone.

My experience was excellent, my main concern is competence and I felt reassured that the images taken were of excellent quality. It is an enormous effort to stand still a lot of care is taken to ensure to have pads and bars to help you get feedback to control your movement. The radiologists were all very competent and also kind and check you are okay often during scanning. I am ready for answers after many years of not knowing or understanding and I really look forward to my report. Many thanks to you all from reception to the radiologists I was happy with the level service.
