Getting Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Thailand


Recommended Posts

Considering getting a shoulder MRI done on my next visit to Bangkok, Pattaya, or Chang Mai.


Does anyone have any experience with this?


Where, cost, advantages or disadvantages.

I went to that same hospital for a bad bruised I had last week in BKK They wanted to perform an MRI. Didn't know what I cost and didn't ask. 15k

They also wanted to perform surgery on my back to strengthen my lower back. I got an X-ray doctor feeand medicine for about 3300 baht. Doctor said it was a routine surgery. Didn't ask how much. Doctor asked if I had insurance I said yes. I fell on my back at nana plaza 5 days into my trip out of commission I have a contusion on

My lower back. Never had one of this and it's the Pitts. It a big bruise and have a hematoma. Doc said 3 months to heal. Went to the hospital in BKK right after the accident. At Bumrungrad closest to my hotel. ER cost was the same. 3500baht X-ray doc fee meds. Bummed out. They should of put nice on my bruise to reduce the blood flow immediately. But not much communication about about what I needed to do for my after care. Accident ruined my 3 week vacation.

Bangkok Hospital-Pattaya can certainly do it. When I mentioned I was a bit claustrophobic, they gave me a shot of Valium which helped the cause.

Bumrungrad Hospital, Bangkok.  I can highly recommend.  I checked out doctors' bio on their website.  I looked for one who had their training in the US. Very good care.

It is a clinic type operation in Bangkok that has a few MRI machines . Very professional with a full hardcopy analysis , CD and Film provided for review by your doctor .  I was able to email my results to my Western doctor for his review .


Appointment was arranged by Girlfriends cousin who is a nurse and recommended this as a reputable place that doesn't have two tier pricing for Falang .  Showed up at appointed time . scans completed and took about an hour to get analysis completed and full reports with CD and film handed over .  Bill presented and paid and out the door feeling I had been well taken care of .
