MRI Makeover: submit your ideas!

Newcastle Clinic is delighted to announce that we’re embarking on a project to make our open MRI scanner even more patient-friendly… and we want your help deciding how to makeover our MRI!

The shape of the open MRI is already much better for anybody anxious about having an MRI: it’s double the width of a traditional scanner and has no enclosed tube, and a family member can sit by your side throughout the scan.

However, the scanner still looks quite… medical. So, we’ve decided to makeover our entire scanner into an even more patient-friendly MRI that will feel like an adventure instead of a procedure!

An MRI adventure story

There have been numerous attempts to create kid-friendly MRI scanners: MRIs have been redesigned to look like rockets, sandcastles and pirate ships!


We love these child-friendly designs, but we also believe that people of all ages will benefit from a comforting design.

We’re so excited for the redesign that we can’t decide on a theme for our MRI makeover. That’s why we’re asking for the public’s help in choosing a new theme for the scanner!


Inspired to help? Head over to our Facebook page to submit your idea for the open MRI makeover or comment below with your ideas!

Call for artists

We’re also looking for enthusiastic graphic designers and artists to help us out. Once we settle on a theme, we’ll need your help bringing it to life!

Please get in touch if you’re interested in helping out – the artist who submits the design that we choose to use will win a £100 gift card and can be featured in the video unveiling the new scanner!
