MRI Scanning

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Unit is located alongside the main x-ray department on the ground floor of the hospital, and contains two MR scanners.  The Magnetic Resonance (MR) scanner is a complex and very expensive piece of equipment.  It uses a powerful magnet which can be hazardous unless precautions are taken. 

Note that the MR magnets are normally on continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
