Open MRI scanner
The future of magnetic imaging for bone, joint and cartilage in the heart of Lincolnshire
What is Open MRI?
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging which is a way of taking pictures inside the body without using x-rays, not emitting ionising radiation.
Open MRI is suitable for certain parts of your body, including bones, soft tissues and the brain, using one of the most advanced imaging techniques to date to carry put investigative and diagnostic imaging. MRI uses a very strong magnetic field which allows doctors to see inside your body in a way previously only possible through surgery. This allows greater clarity and understanding of what is going on inside the body that may be causing problematic symptoms like knee pain, hip pain or other musculoskeletal issues.
Open MRI delivers the same level of accuracy as a traditional MRI scanner; however, all four sides of the scanner are open, therefore reducing the risk of claustrophobia and panic attacks that many patients report with traditional MRI scanners.
Open MRI is a dedicated MSK scanner, endorsed by FIMS.the International Federation Of Sports Medicine. The scanner is its ability to offer true motion sequences, allowing the MSK consultants at Open MRI to assess the anatomy in real time, which is hugely beneficial to patient diagnosis.

Why an Open MRI?
MRI imaging is a type of diagnostic imaging that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body’s internal structures. MRI can be used to diagnose a wide range of conditions, at Open MRI Lincoln we specialise in diagnosing musculoskeletal disorders.
MRI imaging is highly sensitive, which means that it can detect even small changes in the body’s tissues. MRI is also very versatile, as it can be used to image both soft tissues and bones. This makes it an ideal imaging modality for diagnosing complex conditions.
MRI imaging is non-invasive and does not involve exposure to radiation, making it a safe and effective imaging modality. An open MRI scanner is also more comfortable for patients than other imaging modalities, and you are not confined to a small space, as the scanner is of an open design.
