CLAUSTROPHOBIC?  ANXIOUS?

The  Upright MRI allows you to sit or stand during your scan — with nothing in front of your face to make you feel uncomfortable.   Most importantly, UPRIGHT MRI allows you to be scanned in the position of your symptoms.  This allows for a much more accurate diagnosis of the patient’s condition.

The revolutionary design of FONAR’s Upright MRI allows 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.

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.
