Medico-Legal MRI Scanning & Reporting Service

Medico-Legal Partnership (TM of SM Legal Services) offer a broad range of legal and medico-legal services,  which include a UK wide MRI scanning and reporting service. We have secured the use of several established MRI scanning facilities throughout the Midlands and beyond, which are currently used for a variety of purposes, from elite sports professionals to neurological scans.

Patients can be referred and booked in for an MRI / CT scan at short notice, between 48 hours and five working days. Once the scan has been performed, either Dr Allan Thomas or Dr. Vijay Sawlani, our independent Consultant Neuroradiologists, can report on the MRI scan/s within one week. Dr Thomas offers medical reports on a variety of scans, including those of the; brain, head and neck, spine, sacroiliac joints, brachial plexus, lumbosacral plexus and sciatic nerve. For those patients who cannot have an MRI scan (such as those with pacemakers), Dr Thomas can also provide medical reports on CT myelogram’s.

We offer very competitive pricing, with a 1 part MRI scan and report starting from as little as £450 + VAT. We also offer open and upright MRI scans for client’s who have large BMI and / or who are claustrophobic. This facility starts from as little as £750 (excl. VAT).

An advantage of booking an MRI scan for medico-legal cases through ISIS, is that our experts work within a dedicated medico-legal partnership. Therefore, they share the joint aim of assisting with the resolution of cases at various stages of litigation within tight time frames.
