As a specialist in pain management, and having referred to MRI Centers for over ten years, I have now seen the revolutionary configuration of the magnet which is what makes Positioning Imaging possible.  I could see how this MRI would most certainly help my patients.  Providing this service and new technology has the ability to put the patient in the position necessary to provide the most accurate diagnosis.  I will now be able to make a far more comprehensive and accurate evaluation of my patients’ conditions, which of course will enable me to prescribe and execute more effective treatment plans.  This is my primary reason for purchasing the UPRIGHT MRI

The revolutionary design of FONAR’s Upright MRI alows patients to simply walk in and be scanned.  The Upright 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 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 is also able to rotate the vertically-oriented patient into a horizontal position so the patient can be scanned lying down just like in the case of a traditional MRI.

How do I prepare for my scan?

Preparations for your imaging appointment will be different depending upon the type of imaging order by your doctor.  You may have to stop taking certain medications or have no food or drink the night before your scan.  Make sure you check with your doctor before your appointment to make sure we are able to perform your imaging on the day of your appointment.

There are no known harmful effects from the strong magnetic field used for MRI. But the magnet is very powerful. The magnet may affect pacemakers, artificial limbs, and other medical devices that contain iron. The magnet will stop a watch that is close to the magnet. Any loose metal object has the risk of causing damage or injury if it gets pulled toward the strong magnet.

Metal parts in the eyes can damage the retina. If you may have metal fragments in the eye, an X-ray of the eyes may be done before the MRI. If metal is found, the MRI will not be done.
