Your Appointment

Booking your MRI scan

You will need a referral from a doctor or specialist.

To book your appointment:

You and your referring doctor or specialist will need to complete all sections of an MRI Requisition Form.
Submit the MRI Requisition Form to our office by:
scanning the form and emailing it to us at mri@nsmi.ca,
faxing the form to our office at 604-984-8395, or
dropping it off at our North Vancouver office.

Call us at 604-998-1113 to book your appointment.

Once we have received your completed MRI Requisition Form, our staff will contact you to schedule an appointment time that is convenient for you.

Preparing for your MRI appointment:

When you call us to book your appointment, we will let you know if there is anything you need to do to prepare for your MRI exam.

A few guidelines:

  • Unless advised otherwise, you can eat and drink as usual before the exam.
  • Unless advised otherwise, continue taking any prescription medications.
  • Do not apply scented lotions, hair products or perfume on the day of your exam.
  • Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so that you have time to complete and sign a questionnaire regarding your medical history.

After your MRI appointment:

One of our radiologists will analyze the images and send a report to your doctor or specialist within 24 hours. Your doctor or specialist will discuss the results of the scan with you.
