NEW - MRI Scans
MRI Scan Mr Gordon can now arrange MRI Scans WITHIN ONE WEEK! Patients have, up until now, had to wait sometimes as long as 8 to 12 weeks for an MRI appointment. Mr Gordon can now speed this process up and arrange your scan, often within a week, meaning a significantly quicker diagnosis of your condition.

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This type of scan uses magnetism to build up a picture of the inside of the body instead of X-rays. This is an example of an MRI scan.

MRI is completely painless, but rather noisy. The MRI scanner can be used for cross section views of the body, like the CT scanner. The main advantages of MRI scans are that they use no X-ray radiation, they can show up soft tissues very clearly and a single scan can produce many pictures from angles all round the body. The drawbacks are that they are very noisy and they can be affected by movement. So they aren't used so often for some mouth tumours, for example, because coughing or swallowing will make the scan less clear. MRI can be used on most of the body. For some parts of the body and for some types of tissues, it can produce clearer results than CT scan. For other situations, CT scan is better. Your own doctor will be best placed to decide the best type of scan for you.
