This image can provide important information about whether or not cancer is present in the prostate.

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.

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. Kindly note, that the Radiographers who undertake your mpMRI scan are unable to give you any indication of the results of the scan.

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.
