Open and Upright MRI permits fully weight-bearing imaging, leading to earlier detection and a more accurate diagnosis in a comfortable, non-claustrophobic environment.
The unique U-shape allows patients to be scanned in their ‘position of pain’ which is usually that of maximum symptoms, including standing, sitting or lying down. This increases the diagnostic accuracy and clinical relevance of the report.
The extra wide space provides a comfortable experience for bariatric patients, those with limited mobility and patients who suffer from claustrophobia, by being a less intimidating environment and ensuring patient comfort.
The use of Nobel Prize winning technology avoids the need for liquid helium to cool the scanner, making it significantly quieter, safer and more environmentally friendly.
Patients are welcome to view the scanner prior to their appointment and meet our team of expert radiographers who are experienced in relieving any concerns you may have, and ensuring an anxiety free experience with us.
