3T MRI

The 3T scanner at Heath Lodge Clinic

Advantages of 3T Scanning

Our new 3T scanner is the first of its type to be installed in the UK.  It is particularly friendly for patients and has an inbuilt TV system such that you can watch relaxing images and/or cartoons while your scans are being obtained.  3T scanning means that the signal that we get to create the images is stronger and therefore slices can be thinner and more detailed.  For a number of applications, such as whole-body screening and prostate scans, 3T is the recommended magnet strength.
