MRI is the only MRI scanner that allows patients to be scanned with
the patient in any position, including standing, sitting, bending
or lying down.
As a result of its unique ability to scan patients in weight-bearing
positions the Stand-Up MRI has detected problems that would
have gone undetected on ordinary lie-down scanners.
The Stand-Up is the only true
Open MRI. Patients typically sit and watch a big screen TV throughout
their scans. Problems with claustrophobia are gone.
PROOF IS IN THE PICTURE
These are lumbar
spine images of a patient who had undergone back surgery but
was continuing to experience pain. The image on the left was
acquired with the patient lying down. It shows a normal alignment
of the vertebrae. However, when the patient was scanned in
an upright position (right image), a dramatic spinal instability
was clearly revealed. This problem was visible only when the
patient was scanned upright and would have gone undiagnosed
on a conventional, lie-down MRI scanner.
