ORTHOPAEDIC AND HAND MRI
We are the first private medical facility in Singapore to offer a compact MRI diagnostic imaging for the upper and lower limb conditions using state of the art imaging technology for unparalleled patient comfort.
MRI of the limbs allow timely and accurate diagnosis of a broad range of conditions, including tumours, injuries and degeneration of muscles, nerves, tendons, bones and joints. The 3-Dimensional images also allow precise surgical planning so you get the best treatment possible. Our GE Optima MR430S 1.5T scanner delivers optimum resolution to visualize the smallest structures and injuries with outstanding images, all from the comfort of an armchair.
For those bothered by small enclosed spaces, our open high-field MRI machine will scan extremities in the comfort of an arm chair. Our whole body scanners for the shoulder, spine and hips are a wide bore design with integrated audio visual entertainment to minimise claustrophobic feelings.
At Orthopaedic & Hand MRI (OHM), we use a breast MRI to produce detailed images which help doctors detect breast cancer or other abnormalities and recommend a treatment plan or surgery, if necessary. OHM’s women’s imaging radiologists and medical team are all female, ensuring the patient’s privacy and comfort. Contact us and schedule an appointment with our doctors to determine the cause of your symptoms.
We understand that cost and finances may be a concern for many of our patients; as such, we recognise reimbursement from these insurance companies.

“Service staff texted & called me a day earlier to provide directions. This is not my first MRI experience and I’m ‘wow-ed’ by the delicate and personal process. I even had a chance to know a radiologist in-person.”
