Specialist Open and Upright MRI Scans

Why Medserena

Our goal is to deliver a better MRI experience to every client by combining diagnostic expertise with our unique open MRI scanners located in the most spacious UK MRI centres.

Medserena is a specialist provider of Upright and Truly Open (nothing in front of your face) MRI scans, providing a premium service to investigate numerous medical conditions and symptoms.

Benefits of Open and Upright MRI

We understand that having an MRI scan in a conventional flatbed tunnel MRI scanner isn’t suitable for everyone - whether that is due to claustrophobia, being too heavy or just not being able to lie flat for a prolonged period because of a painful back condition. That’s why we provide all our MRI scans in comfortable upright scanners in which you can sit or stand, with an open front specifically designed to put you at your ease and keep you in close contact with your radiographer for reassurance throughout the experience.

Upright scanners are also particularly useful for assessing back pain and joint problems as you can be scanned in a weight-bearing position to give a more realistic picture of how your spinal vertebrae and joints react to gravity and pressure. Medserena has developed its own sequence of scanning the spine and neck called variPOSE where these areas can be imaged in different positions such as extended, flexed or rotated.
