Private MRI scan prices 

The cost of a private MRI scan varies depending on the area of the body that will be scanned. 

Newcastle Clinic offers open MRI scans for the brain, cervical or lumbar spine, shoulders, legs, hips, knees and abdominal area. 

The only open MRI scanner in the North East of England, Scotland and Cumbria is located at Newcastle Clinic.

Although we are a private clinic, we can accept NHS referrals for patients who are claustrophobic or obese.

Our open MRI scanner is much more comfortable for patients, especially those who are claustrophobic, frail or anxious.

Newcastle Clinic accepts all private patients who have a referral from a GP, physiotherapist, consultant, chiropractor, or osteopath. You do not need to have private medical insurance to visit us.

Private patients should fill in the form on the right to receive an estimated cost of their scan and to discuss payment options.

We also accept multiple types of health insurance which can cover the cost of a private MRI scan.

All appointments for an MRI scan or ultrasound will be offered in less than one week, and patients will receive their results within a week of the diagnostic test.

Contact us with any questions about costs.
