Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning is a safe and effective way to identify a problem or help confirm a diagnosis. In many cases, an MRI can provide peace of mind and give you the information you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Even with a referral, it can take a long time to book an MRI on the NHS. With Living Room Health, you could be seen for an MRI as quickly as the same day with radiology report within 48 hours.

What you need to know about MRI scanning

Using MRI, our qualified professionals can locate the cause of your pain and discomfort quickly, painlessly and with precision. MRI scanning produces high-quality images of your bones, muscles, tendons, and connective tissues to swiftly identify any damage or abnormalities.


Select your scan date and time and submit some simple details. If you are eligible for an MRI, then your appointment will be confirmed. If you are not eligible, you may need a referral from a GP/clinician, or we might suggest a different diagnostic scan.


We are usually able to scan a joint in around 45 minutes, and there’s no need for you to get changed. The ergonomic design of our scanners ensures maximum comfort. You don’t need to put your body into a confined space, and there is very little noise.

You will receive a digital copy of your scan, which you can discuss with one of our experts. Additionally, a full radiology report can be sent to your GP for further discussion. The next step is to discuss the appropriate treatment, either with our clinical team or your GP.

Why have an MRI Scan?

MRI scanning can be an effective and painless way to help gain greater insight into what’s happening inside your body.

The images produced by the scan can help identify the source of your pain or be used to confirm a diagnosis made during an external examination.

The detailed report can ensure you get the right course of treatment and will give you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions with your doctor and ensure you have peace of mind.

Why choose our MRI?

Traditional MRIs can be overwhelming. However, our open MRI scanners can scan you in as little as 30 minutes instead of a standard hour-long scan.

Furthermore, our state-of-the-art scans make less noise than a normal MRI, and the ergonomic design reduces claustrophobia for a more comfortable experience.
