Services : Stand-Up MRI
The revolutionary design of FONAR's Stand-Up™ MRI allows patients to simply walk in and be scanned.
The Stand-Up™ MRI allows all parts of the body, particulary the spine and joints, to be imaged in
the weight bearing state. The system is equipped with our unique MRI-compatible motorized patient
handling system that will move the patient into the magnet and place 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 as in conventional MRI scanning.
Distinctive Benefits Include:
•The only true Open MRI
•Proven 0.6 Tesla performance
•Scan patients lying down
•Scan patients in flexion, extension, rotation and lateral bending
•Scan patients in a sitting position
•Position MRI™ (pMRI™)•Scan patients in their position of pain
•Scan cardiovascular patients upright in their position of symptoms
•Scan patients with cerebrovascular insufficiency in the upright position of symptoms
•Patient convenience: walk in, sit or stand during the scan and walk out
•An unprecedented degree of patient comfort due to the unobstructed view of the
scanner room from inside the magnet. There is nothing in front of the patient's face.
