9 terrifying MRI scans

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan uses magnets and radio waves to produces two- and three-dimensional pictures of the inside of your body.  These pictures can be used to help with crucial medical diagnoses.

The images of our insides aren’t always entirely pleasant, and sometimes can be frightening or even funny! Since it’s spooky season, we’ve round up the scariest MRI scans we could find on the internet:

If the scariest thing for you is getting an MRI scan in a standard MRI tube due to claustrophobia, then our open MRI is the best solution. Newcastle Clinic accepts referrals on the NHS for patients who suffer from claustrophobia. 99% of our patients have successfully completed scans in our open MRI scanner.

The open MRI is more than double the width of a traditional MRI, much quieter and hasn’t got an enclosed tube. It’s completely open from both sides which allows your friend or family member to be right beside you holding your hand throughout the scan.

Please contact us if you have any questions about having an open MRI.  Let us know which scan was the scariest on Facebook!
