UPRIGHT MRI’s FOR MORE PRECISE DIAGNOSIS…

box-love-your-back

No more panic if your a bit claustrophobic with the upright MRI.

MRI imaging has long been used as a way to image and assess the spine for pathology, scanning patients supine. It may now be argued that scanning patients in a weight-bearing position has the potential to deliver a more precise diagnosis, thus improving patient management.

It’s an open system which enhances patient comfort for an anxiety-free examination, and has a
unique ability to scan the spine in flexion or extension.

It’s not just for the spine though as weight-bearing imaging can be of benefit in joints like hips, knees, or ankles.

Patients who cannot undertake a conventional MRI scan due to claustrophobia, large body size, or inability to lie down, also benefit from this truly open scanner.

It is also a radiation-free way to evaluate scoliosis in the standing position.

The upright scanner is available at MRI London, for more details head to their website.

  1. Hi – I am going to take part in a round table discussion at the upright MRI. The topics will be ergonomic developments in equipment to help sufferers and also patient evaluation with the upright MRI being the most advanced diagnostic equipment.
    The discussion will be on UK Health Radio – it will be recorded in a couple of weeks time and if useful/ interesting I will let you know when it will be broadcast.
