Lincoln UK Open MRI Musculoskeletal Scan For Athlete Health Self-Referral Launch

The new state-of-the-art musculoskeletal clinic features the only open MRI scanner in the country. Unlike traditional scanners that are designed within an enclosed space, an open MRI uses a magnetic top and bottom. This makes it easier for surgeons to clearly see dynamic motions, which allows for better assessment and diagnosis.

Open MRI is a new facility of MSK Doctors that operates on a self-referral basis, which reduces waiting time and increases the chances of faster recovery. Now, patients can schedule their appointment through the company website and visit the clinic on their preferred date. A digital copy of their results will be emailed within 24 to 48 hours by a specialist consultant radiologist, with an option for a virtual or face-to-face follow-up appointment.

The new clinic is meant for athletes, sports enthusiasts, bariatric, or even claustrophobic patients who want to assess their musculoskeletal conditions. After receiving their results, patients can consult with one of the specialized consultant orthopedic surgeons at MSK Doctors at a preferential rate.

Currently, Open MRI offers four scanning services. The most comprehensive option scans a single part of the body, which is usually a joint such as the elbow or knee. Other, more highly specialized examinations, including additional scanning, may be requested online.

Open MRI features a dedicated S-scan MRI system that has been endorsed by FIMS, the International Federation of Sports Medicine.

MSK Doctors is led by double Board-certified surgeon Professor Paul Lee. He has gained a reputation for his innovative strategies in musculoskeletal care and is also at the forefront of today’s movement toward cell therapy. He has treated UK Premiership footballers and is constantly looking for ways to help more athletes find more affordable healthcare.

A spokesperson for the clinic said, “We only focus on musculoskeletal care, our scanner is FISM approved, we only work with the best UK Certified Harley Street Specialist Musculoskeletal Consultant Radiologists and do not use reporting Radiographers.”
