How long does an MRI scan take?

The MRI scan usually takes in the region of 20 minutes but occasionally can be up to an hour depending on the number of areas scanned. All of this will be discussed with you before the scan. During the scan, the Radiographer will be able to see you from the Control Room and you can talk to each other through an intercom. You will be given a call button to press if you need to make contact.
