Prices & payment Enquiries & appointments

We offer fast access to private Multi-parametric MRI scans, a new diagnostic tool designed to detect prostate cancer accurately. By combining up to four different types of image in one scan, an mpMRI scan produces a more detailed picture of the prostate than a standard MRI scan. This image can provide important information about whether or not cancer is present in the prostate.

Access to specialist MRI scans seven days a week

We understand that undergoing any type of scan can be daunting, which is why we work with dedicated teams of experienced MRI Radiographers, who will be with you every step of the way. We will carry out your scan in our wide bore scanner, which will help if you suffer from feelings of claustrophobia. At KIMS Hospital, we offer appointments seven days a week, including early morning, late evening and weekends, so you can be seen at a time that works for you.

mpMRI scan FAQs

Who can have an mpMRI scan?

Men with suspected prostate cancer can have access to an mpMRI scan. There is no radiation involved, however, it is not always possible for men who have certain types of implanted medical devices fitted to have an mpMRI scan. For example, someone fitted with a non-conditional MRI safe pacemaker would not be able to have an mpMRI.

You will need to have been referred for an mpMRI by a qualified healthcare professional, such as your GP or Consultant. It is important that the referral information is thorough, as this will allow the MRI team to tailor the scan to best suit your diagnostic needs.

Where can I have my mpMRI Scan?

We offer mpMRI Scans at KIMS Hospital in Maidstone and Sevenoaks Medical Centre. If you’re a private patient, you can choose where to have your scan. For example, even if you have your initial consultation at KIMS Hospital, you can still have your mpMRI in Sevenoaks. This might be because we can offer you an appointment sooner, or you may find it more convenient to switch between our facilities, depending on where you live and work.

When will I get my results?

During your mpMRI scan a large number of images are obtained. One of our team of Consultant Radiologists will review the scans and produce a report. The majority of reports will be produced within two working days of your appointment. Unfortunately, the Radiographers who undertake your scan are unable to give you any indication of the results on the day.

Your report will be sent to your referring medical professional such as a Consultant or GP who will be able to give you the results of your scan. Please arrange a follow-up appointment with them.

What if I need further treatment?

If your scan shows that you need treatment, your Consultant will recommend a plan for you. If you need a procedure, this will be carried out at KIMS Hospital in Maidstone.
