Whole Body MRI Gift Card - Peace of mind for those you love
How do I make an appointment?

It is easy. You can make your appointment directly online and payment will be taken at that time by credit card. A requisition is required by your primary care physician, however, if you do not have one, we will organize a referral from one of our physician partners. If we are not able to obtain a requisition from our partners, then you will receive a full refund and can rebook when requisition is available.

How do I prepare for my study?

You will be asked to change into a gown and asked to remove any metal objects, eg. Hairpins, piercing, jewelry, watches, bracelets, bras, metal-based make-up or hearing aids. A locker will be provided to place your valuables in.

Please refer to the ‘For Patients’ section for more specific preparation instructions for the various screening scans available.

What can I expect during my appointment?

You will be placed onto a table which will slide into the machine. The MRI machine makes different loud noises throughout the examination which is completely normal, and headphones may be provided to diminish the noise.
