Magnetic Resonance Imaging

we have the latest mri technology producing high quality images.  our 3t mri is the only one of its kind in the region,  providing our patients a unique & ambient experience.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to provide clear and detailed pictures of internal structures and tissues of the body.  It requires specialised equipment and expertise, allowing evaluation of some body structures that may not be visible on other imaging methods.  MRI images are so precise that doctors can often get as much information from MRI as they would from looking at the tissue.  For this reason, MRI has the potential to reduce the number of tests that a patient needs to undergo to make a diagnosis.



  • If you have difficulty lying flat or suffer from claustrophobia, please discuss this with the Bookings team when making the appointment. 
  • You will be required to complete questionnaires prior to your scan. 
  • The procedure will be explained to you and you will be given time to ask questions.
  • You will be asked to remove all jewellery and metal objects and change into one of our gowns. All valuables will be safely locked away.



  • During the examination it is vital that you keep still. You will be given a call-bell to ring in case you need the attention of the MRI Radiographer. If you need to cough, sneeze or move, the tech can pause the scan.
  • The MRI technician can communicate with you through an intercom. 
  • During the scan you will hear some peculiar noises:
    • The hum of the machine
    • Some thumping, whirring, grating and other machine-like noises.
    • You will be given earplugs, earmuffs or both to help with this.
  • Depending on the part of the body being examined, a contrast material may be used to enhance the visibility of certain abnormal tissues, blood vessels or infection. This is usually administered partway through the examination through a small needle inserted into the arm or the back of the hand. Some examination will definitely need the contrast e.g. ALL breast and prostate MRI scans. 



  • The MRI is reported by our Radiologists. The report will then be sent to your referring health professional who can discuss your results with you. 
  • The MRI Technician is responsible for performing the MRI. They are not qualified to provide interpretation. If you wish to clarify your result, please either contact your referring doctor or call us here at Broadway where a Radiologist can assist you. 


Ladies. If you are pregnant, you should inform staff. Although there is no evidence that a hazard exists for pregnant women, it is best not to take chances.
