Stand-Up MRI

Available at: East Brunswick

Modality Details:

Today, radiologists and surgeons are seeing revealing images they’ve never seen before, diagnosing spinal and other problems that have often been invisible on recumbent-only MRI’s, and improving surgical outcomes to a degree never before possible – all thanks to the first MRI that lets you put the body in motion, so scans can be done the way people live and experience problems, instead of just lying flat.

With the revolutionary Fonar Upright® Multi-Position™ MRI, you can see the spine fully loaded with the weight of the body – which studies indicate creates up to 11 times more pressure on the discs when compared to laying down. (A. L. Nachemson, 1976; H. J. Wilke et al, 1999). This way you can see the spine in flexion and extension – with the nerves, discs, and other soft tissue in clear view.
