There's a place by the hospital rounderbout. If you come down from Anavargas to the rounderbout, go through as if heading to the motorway and take the first left (there is a sign directing to the clinic).

Admittedly I suppose there are a few around the hospitals. I was trying to save some expense if someone knew of a value for money one .

I think that the one just below the General hospital, on the road behind the Alexander College, is the only actual MRI scanner in Paphos.
When Dave was scanned there more than two years ago, he was told that if he had gone private, it would have cost about €400 ....

There is only one in Paphos. Prizes are different for the different MRI's needed. The MRI machine cost an enormous amount of money, so they are not around as XRay machines.

Prices will also vary depending on the distance between the individual scans or whether contrast agent is applied.

There are a few MRI scanners in Paphos - the one I would highly recommend is at the George Vorkas Radiology Center. He used to be the Radiologist at the Iasis and has set up his own radiology centre. Worth giving him a phone call and asking for a price.

Thank you so much for correcting me. I wasn't aware of several MRI's in Paphos. Before the Diagnostic Centre opened I was sent to Limassol for an MRI. Can you please let me (us) know where they are in Paphos? Thank you !

I would certainly try George Vorkas (He is on the ground floor in the same building (or next door) to where Blevins Franks are located). As stated he used to be the radiologist at the Iasis until he started up his own business. My wife can always get fast appointments for dexa scans there but his MRI service may have a waiting list, but worth trying.

My wife used Vorkas last Tuesday as a referral from Dr at Evangalismos the previous day. Was private and cost 300 euros.

As said not cheap but swift.

My wife and a family member with a bad shoulder waited till well after 1pm today having a 10 o'clock appointment. When he was finally seen the doctor did NOTHING. He said there was no point in organising a scan via the hospital as his visit will be over before anything is done...

So two very disappointing members of our family, with the Paphos Hospital Grrrrr..

I really don't know why people expect MRI scans (or CT scans) to be 'cheap'! By comparison they cost a fortune in the UK.

The only mri scanner I have used that gave me written, printed and a CD within a couple of hours of having scan was at the hospital below in Nicosia. It was a brain scan with contrast and cost around 400e. Around 300e for other scans. At least give them a call for advice as they have a 24 hr tel number. I only go to Nicosia as machines tend to be newer and faster https://www.aretaeio.com or try the German oncology centre in Limassol.
