SAFEMMA IRELAND have concluded a price of €150/£125 for the preclearance MRI brain scan for amateur MMA fighters recommended- only once ever -for amateurs on SAFEMMA IRELAND events from January 2017.
This is available at the Bon Secours Hospital in Glasnevin, Dublin.
€150/£125 is only marginally higher than cost-price and we are grateful to the Bon Secours. To date no other MRI unit in Ireland has offered a similar cost for this scan. It is not available to other sporting codes or family members.
A referral can be made directly by your GP e.g. at the time of your annual medical examination, using the reference code “DH”.
Your GP will receive the scan report and you yourself will be given a CD containing the actual pictures of your brain.
SAFEMMA IRELAND welcomes scans from all MRI units with correct sequence protocols.
SAFEMMA IRELAND is a totally voluntary project.
Our sole motive is to make MMA safer.
No doctor takes fees or expenses, or any other benefit, directly or indirectly.
Professor Dan Healy
