Grantham, UK Specialist For Knee MRI Launches A No Waiting List No-Referral Scan

Open MRI (0333-335-5848), an organization that provides the only Open MRI scanning machine in the county of Lincolnshire, has launched a new fast-access program that lets patients schedule a scan with no waiting list or referral.

The NHS Constitution promises that patients should wait no more than six weeks for a diagnostic scan after making a request, but that can be far too long for many patients to wait. The new fast-access program launched by Open MRI lets patients book a scan at a private clinic, with no waiting list.

Using the self-referral program from Open MRI, patients can receive a diagnostic scan within just a few days, and have their results analyzed by top musculoskeletal specialists. Patients can schedule their own scans by contacting the clinic, without a referral from their GP, or they can schedule a virtual pre-MRI consultation with the in-house medical team.

Patients who know what they need to be scanned can book an MRI appointment directly, and can have up to three body parts scanned in a single session. Patients who need assistance in planning their scans can use the virtual consultation process to learn more about their condition, and how to get the best results from their MRI scan.

The Open MRI scanner also provides access to dynamic or motion scans, a diagnostic technique that is not possible with traditional MRI equipment. While these scans take longer to complete, up to 90 minutes per appointment, they can often provide more detailed information about an injury, and how it is affected by body movements.

A standard appointment with Open MRI has several other benefits, beyond fast access to diagnostic equipment that is not available anywhere else in the county. Patients will receive a digital copy of their MRI images, along with a Consultant Radiologist report, and preferential rates for treatment through MSK Doctors, a private clinic with the UK’s top musculoskeletal specialists.

Appointments also include a pre-scan consultation and a 1-on-1 post-scan discussion, though patients may choose to schedule a Screen Share or F2F appointment for a more in-depth analysis. This option puts patients in contact with a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, who will go through their scan slide-by-slide with them to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options.

A spokesperson said, “With an internationally renowned reputation for our biological approach and motion philosophy, MSK Doctors is setting a benchmark in musculoskeletal health. With the clinics in London Harley Street and our own computer vision robotic centre in Lincolnshire, we can help patients access the best technology for treatment and diagnosis.”
