The UPRIGHT® MRI is the only MRI scanner than can scan patients in any position, including sitting, standing, bending (for flexion and extension) or lying down. With the opposing magnetic poles oriented vertically, the generous space between them accommodates a special motorized patient bed that can rotate the patient
At Pinnacle Upright MRI we continue to bring state of the art technology to the area. Bringing Patient Comfort to the next Level.
Advanced design allows the FONAR UPRIGHT® MRI to scan your patients in the positions they experience their problems—sitting, standing, bending, leaning, as well as lying down. All other MRIs can only scan them while they’re lying down. .
Fonar technology makes more efficient use of Tesla power. Here’s how. The Fonar UPRIGHT® MRI’s Unique horizontal–transverse magnetic field allows use of high-field spine coil, and Fonar’s Upright® open configuration allows the use of symptom–specific coils. Result: Fonar UPRIGHT® MRI images at 0.6T are indistinguishable from those taken with a 1.5T recumbent MRI.
The patient simply walks in, sits down, and watches TV during the scan. They are not slid into the usual tube. This open comfort is especially good for people who are claustrophobic.
The Fonar UPRIGHT® MRI is equipped with our unique MRI–compatible motorized patient handling system that can 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 a conventional MRI .
