Upright® Multi-Position™ MRI
Available at: East Brunswick
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.
Traditional MRIs require the patient to lie in a tight, enclosed cylinder, which sometimes causes issues for those who have claustrophobia. Typical MRI tests last around half an hour, and with Open MRI the patient is much more comfortable during the scan compared to the more common cylindrical MRI machines. An open MRI is flexible and can be used like a traditional MRI for the Back, Brain, Breast, Cervical, Foot & Ankle, and all other conventional MRI scans.
Are you claustrophobic, or have you failed an MRI due to the discomfort of lying down? An Open and or Upright MRI is the solution. Image Care’s Upright MRI offers a multitude of benefits:
