Access the future of MRI with medical imaging services in East Brunswick, NJ. Certain problems will not be detected in a static, flat position. At ImageCare East Brunswick, we are committed to providing you with exceptional diagnostic imaging through Upright MRI technology.
This new era in diagnosis is possible because of the unique power of the Fonar Upright® Multi-Position™ MRI. It’s the first MRI that has the power to provide full range-of-motion diagnosis – with the nerves, discs, and other soft tissue in clear view. It achieves truly physiologic MRI, instead of recumbent-only, static MRI which can leave spinal compression undetectable since it occurs in a standing or sitting position. Traditional MRI requires you to lay down, which naturally relieves any spinal compression, so the issues you experience while your spine is compressed might not be visible. Our Upright Multi-Position™ MRI enables scans while standing or sitting, inducing spinal compression to replicate the conditions which cause pain or other discomfort.
With an upright MRI, scans are performed to capture the way you live and experience the problem. At ImageCare East Brunswick, you can expect the following standards:
ImageCare East Brunswick services are designed with patient comfort in mind. Our accredited, highly trained technologists make every effort to ensure you feel calm and at ease. Upright MRI is a great option for all patients, not just those with claustrophobia. Its ability to scan patients in multiple positions and with spinal compression means that hidden issues are easier for your doctor to diagnose. Since our MRI scanners are open, there is ample space for someone to accompany you into the scanner room and even hold your hand during the scan.
Prior to your MRI appointment you will be informed of any necessary preparations. This will vary depending on the part of the body being scanned. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing, although a gown will be provided if necessary. Be sure to bring the prescription from your doctor with you when you come for your MRI exam.
Ask about our patient transportation services if you require assistance to and from your appointment. We are happy to accommodate our eligible patients with their transportation needs.
