For many years, cardiac pacemakers and other implantable cardiac devices have prevented patients from benefiting from MRI scanning, due to potential risks posed to the device by the strong magnetic fields associated with the MRI scanner.
The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre are pleased to be able to offer a new MRI scanning service to patients who have implanted cardiac devices. Using the latest technology, our expert multidisciplinary team of cardiology and radiology consultants, cardiac technicians and specialist radiographers work in collaboration with the device manufacturers to enable to us to hold regular scanning sessions for patients with cardiac devices who may require MRI scans of any body part.
For further information on this unique pacing service, or to discuss your suitability for MRI at the Chenies Mews Imaging Centre, then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are experienced in working with both NHS and private referrers, and can liaise on your behalf with private medical insurers to ensure that you obtain the most appropriate scan.
