Sleaford Open MRI Private Scan For Sports Injury | No-Referral Service Expanded

With its biomechanical approach to musculoskeletal conditions, Open MRI’s scans deliver comfortable, fast, and accurate imaging of joints and bones in motion, a feat that cannot be as easily achieved with traditional MRI scanners. With their expansion to Sleaford, they help their patients access high-quality private medical care without the need for travelling to faraway cities like Nottingham or London.

Being a private entity dedicated to musculoskeletal imaging has allowed Open MRI to eliminate waiting lists and reduce the time taken to deliver reports. Their recent move extends further assistance to their local community by providing the first open scanner in the country and the only one available in Lincolnshire.

Open scanners are among the latest imaging technologies available today. As opposed to enclosed traditional scanners, the scanners at Open MRI have a magnetic top and bottom and a large, unobstructed open space in between. That open nature makes them more comfortable for people suffering from panic attacks, claustrophobia, or obesity.

Open MRI’s services focus on treating high-level athletes and Premier League footballers, which requires assessing joints in motion and under strain. With their private services, patients have immediate access to high-end MRI scans without a need for a GP or medical consultant referral.

The scan centre also offers face-to-face or virtual consultations with one of MSK Doctors’ renowned orthopaedic surgeons before or after scans. Further, all scans at Open MRI are performed by qualified consultant radiologists, who follow the quality standards of Harley Street medical professionals.

To ensure fast access to diagnosis and treatment options, they send out an online scan report within 24 to 48 hours. Additionally, Open MRI works closely with solicitors and a medical-legal agency to provide private scans for personal injuries and medical negligence claims.
