MRI Head & Neck Coil

 Head Scan

You will lie on the scan table and be positioned in a special coil, as shown in the picture, which helps to obtain very high quality images. You will be moved into the scanner and when you are ready, your scan will begin.  A mirror is positioned to enable you to see out of the scanner, although many patients simply shut their eyes during the scan. 

(Please see MRI Scan for general Information)
