No More Claustrophobia - No More Tube - Multi Position MRI Is Here 

Big Al is here and his mission is to eliminate claustrophobia and anxiety associated with having an MRI scan. He's 288,000 lbs. of tender loving steel and he sits like two praying hands to cradle and comfort you during your scan.

Vision Upright MRI's Big Al allows you to walk into the machine, watch TV during the scan, and walk out when you're finished. In fact, you can stand, sit or lay and still get a better view of the body than other "tube" MRI machines.

There is evidence that other MRI machines can miss pathology that Big Al can catch. A recent study from UCLA suggest that positional MRI may be the best way to detect disc bulge and at least 18% more pathology in patients with pain. (www.uprightmrinews.com/glennbroder/Spine_Journal_UCLA_study.pdf)

Big Al's unique open architecture is the only truly open MRI that is able to scan patients as large as 500 lbs. comfortably and he's ideal for the most severe claustrophobic patient. There is an alternative to the lay down tube MRI and it's in San Jose, CA.
