What is an MRI scan?

MRI means ‘magnetic resonance imaging’. It's an imaging technique using a strong magnetic field to produce high-quality pictures of soft tissue inside your body, for example muscles and ligaments.

MRI has been used for over 20 years in the UK. There are no known serious side effects, but you should take advice if:

  • You're pregnant or may be pregnant
  • You have a cardiac pacemaker
  • You have an artificial heart valve
  • You have a cochlear implant, neurostimulator, or programmable hydrocephalus shunt
  • You have any metal implant in your body
  • You've had an injury to your eyes involving metal or metal fragments
  • You've had any operations on your head

What is a CT scan?

CT stands for computed tomography. It uses X-rays to produce a cross-sectional, or ‘slice’ image of the inside of your body.

What is a PET scan?​

PET stands for Positron Emission Tomography. It is an imaging technique that uses small quantities of a radioactive tracer called 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (similar to sugar), to produce images showing how your body is functioning. By combining CT and PET techniques in one scanner, Alliance Medical is able to provide images of your body that show your doctor both structural and functional information to help them plan an appropriate treatment for you.
