new way of looking at things
MRI is the optimal tool to reveal musculoskeletal
disease but traditional MRI scanners have a significant limitation.
Recumbent, "lie down" scanners are performed with
the patient in a horizontal, non-weight bearing position and
do not expose the pathology that causes pain.
The Advantage of Multiposition
Multiposition MRI has an advantage over conventional scanners
that allow us to more accurately evaluate human anatomy through
Weight bearing studies often expose critical information that
leads to a more accurate diagnosis and better patient management.
Multipositional technology and our Radiologist help you determine
whether a particular finding is actually relevant to the specific
symptoms being evaluated and thus a more effective treatment.
The revolutionary design of the Open Stand up MRI allows all
parts of the body, particularly the spine and joints, to be
imaged in the weight bearing state. The system is equipped
with a unique motorized patient handling system.
Our system moves the patient into the magnet and places the
anatomy of interest into the center of the magnet gap. It
also can rotate the vertically-oriented patient into a horizontal
position so the patient can be scanned lying down just like
in the traditional MRI.
This makes Open Stand Up MRI the only system in the world
where you can actually watch TV during the imaging procedure.
