Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

The MRI scanner is a non-invasive imaging technology which produces detailed three-dimensional anatomical images WITHOUT using ionizing radiation. MRI scans are used for disease detection, diagnosis and treatment monitoring. The machine is based on sophisticated magnetic technology that excites and detects the change in direction of the rotational axis of the protons found in the water that makes up all living tissues.

Our 3T GE MRI Scanner with highest advanced technology provides:

  • The most advanced noise reduction technology – helping to reduce patient anxiety, reducing motion, and improving patient experience.
  • The new AIR™ Coils offering a new standard in patient comfort and superior image quality.
  • A new generation 30 channel RF anterior coil that offers flexibility in all directions to adapt to the patient’s anatomy.
  • A new Comfort Plus Table with more room for every patient helping with claustrophobia.
  • Intelligent algorithms that reduce noise, artifacts, and improves the signal-to-noise ratios.

Your Questions


All scans at GibMed International Hospital will be reported by a GMC registered radiologist or a HCPC registered reporting radiographer (Ultrasound), in English and with a turnaround time of approximately 2-3 working days.


We may need to administer “contrast dye” during the procedure. Contrast materials help distinguish or “contrast” selected areas of the body from surrounding tissue. This helps physicians diagnose medical conditions by improving the visibility of specific organs, blood vessels, or tissues.

Types of contrast agents we use:
  • Omnipaque
  • Gadolinium

The team will check if you have any allergies, problems with your kidneys, are diabetic or asthmatic before administering contrast agents.

What if I may be pregnant?

It is important to know if there is any possibility of you being pregnant. Our radiographers can discuss the risks and safety measures before any X-rays are performed.

What about children?

Our healthcare team will take all factors into account when deciding if a child needs an X-ray examination, and the amount of radiation used is kept as low as possible.


All the radiographers working within GibMed International Hospital:

  • Hold a BSC Diagnostic Radiography degree or equivalent.
  • Are HCPC registered.
  • Are regulated every 2 years to ensure they are up to date and aware of any advancements within radiology.
What if I don’t have the examination?

Our healthcare team will discuss any concerns with patients.
