MRI Mobile Scanners (MAG6 and MAG20)

We have two on-site mobile MRI scanners located just outside of our main department MRIS at Addenbrookes.

These are both located on Robinson Way in-between the entrance to the Rosie and the entrance to MRIS.

Mag 6 is staffed by the CUH team, Mag 20 is staffed by the private company DHC, who perform the scans to CUH protocols and report the scans to the teams at our hospital.

Waiting room

The waiting room for both scanners is in the MRIS unit.

Please report to the reception where our staff will let you know which scanner you will be scanned on.

Opening times

7am – 8pm, 7 days a week.


MRIS Unit, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Hills Rd, Cambridge CB2 0QQ.


Parking is available at either car park 1 or 2. It is about the same distance from either car park.

Alternative transport is available to the Addenbrookes site.

Visit our travel and parking pages for more information.


The nearest toilets are in the main hospital concourse.

Mobility issues

Unfortunately, we do not have a hoist at this location. We advise patients with mobility issues not to attend.

Both scanners have a staircase and lift for patients to access them.
