  • MRI scans may be significantly better at detecting some breast cancers at an early stage than standard mammograms.

     MRI scans may be significantly better at detecting some breast cancers at an early stage than standard mammograms.

    Professor Peter Dawson, Clinical Director, Vista Diagnostics has noted an interesting article in The Lancet (“MRI for diagnosis of pure ductal carcinoma in situ: a prospective observational study”) which suggests the sensitivity with which ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is diagnosed by MRI scans is greater than with conventional mammograms.
    During a 5-year period, 7319 women were studied and underwent both mammography and MRI scans for screening.

     MRI scans play a growing role in soccer injuries

    Football (Soccer) is a very hard physical game and a great variety of injuries are associated with it. For all but superficial ones, imaging is assuming an ever greater role. Imaging techniques range from plain films through ultrasound and to MRI scans.
    The role of the last in soft tissue injuries is growing. MRI is essential in internal derangements of the knee, shoulder injuries and in tendinitis in a variety of sites.

  • Delayed-enhancement MRI scan for senior marathon runners injuries

    Delayed-enhancement MRI scan for senior marathon runners injuries

    Exercise is good for the heart but, on the other hand, the older the individual the greater the likelihood that it may induce sudden cardiac death! Thus older marathon runners are at some risk.
    A German group has studied MRI scans with late gadolinium enhancement to try to identify those at risk in advance. They performed MRI scans of the myocardium with late gadolinium enhancement in 108 asymptomatic healthy male subjects aged 50 to 72 with a minimum of five completed marathon races during a c...

    MRI can accurately detect and localise ‘deep’ endometriosis

    Endometriosis is a chronic and sometimes painful disease which is one of the most common health problems affecting women; endometrium is found in atopic positions outside the uterus. It can be found attached to other organs such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowels and bladder. Symptoms include chronic pelvic pain, lower back pain, painful sexual intercourse, painful menstrual cramps, fatigue and infertility.
    There are two types of endometriosis: superficial and sub-peritoneal (deep). Superf...

  • MRI is effective in finding tumours in the contra-lateral breast of women diagnosed with cancer in one breast

    MRI is effective in finding tumours in the contra-lateral breast of women diagnosed with cancer in one breast

    Second tumours in the contra-lateral breast are not uncommon, particularly in older women, and clearly their presence may have significant effects on patient management. Studies have shown that MRI of the breast has a higher cancer detection rate than clinical breast examination and mammography alone in women at high risk for developing breast cancer. Women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are at 2-6 X the risk for developing a secondary, contra-lateral breast cancer, compared to women...

  • MRI scans could spare 25% of men from prostate biopsies

    MRI scans could spare 25% of men from prostate biopsies

    MRI scans can assess the prostate's shape and health
    "Every man with suspected prostate cancer should have an MRI scan," The Guardian reports. That is the conclusion of a study looking at how well MRI scans compare with the current practice of biopsies; removing sections of prostate tissue for analysis.
    Disadvantages of prostate biopsies include the fact that they can lead to a small risk of side effects, some of which can be serious, such as sepsis.Researchers were looking at an advanced type...

Client Testimonials

I booked an MRI scan with this company as I have suffered with long term back problems and the waiting list for the NHS to see a surgeon was years. I Was seen really quickly and the service was exceptional. Would highly recommend using them. Saves a lot of time waiting anxiously for it to be done on the NHS. I have already had the results and they were extremely helpful with what treatment I require. This whole process has probably saved me a year of waiting . Thank you

As an Osteopath, we sometimes need to send our patients for imaging to work out what is going on. It can be quite a rigmarole trying to get a referral through the GP and many private MRI companies are too expensive to recommend to a patient. I have now recommended nationalmriscan to many of my patients and they have honesty all had a brilliant experience. They have had scans booked within a few days of phoning (they actually apologised once for not being able to get them in the next day!)...

After suffering with lower back pain and leg pains/numbness for several weeks (unable to walk unaided, frequently falling over) and being shunned by the Cramlington hospital, I decided to go and see a chiropractor. Upon visiting my chiropractor and undergoing an initial examination, I was told my symptoms were too severe and it seemed like a serious spinal issue. My chiropractor told me there was nothing he could do until I had an MRI scan, which would hopefully shed a light on the issue, and al...

After suffering debilitating back and hip pain for months and being told by doctors that I had “pulled something” I decided to book an mri scan through National MRI Scan as I knew this amount of pain was not normal. I had my mri on the Thursday afternoon and by the Friday morning I had received my results by telephone. Jasper had been trying to get hold of me by telephone and by email, but he continuously called until he reached me. I was told that my pain was due to a spine infection (disc...
