Advantages of an upright MRI for overseas patients

One of the primary advantages of our upright, open MRI scans is the ability to conduct weight-bearing imaging.

Unlike traditional tunnel MRI scanners, our upright design allows patients to stand, sit, flex, and extend (variPOSE) during the scan, providing a more accurate representation of the body's natural condition.

This feature is especially beneficial for patients who want to assess the spine and brain while maintaining an upright posture.

We understand that claustrophobia can be a major concern for many individuals when it comes to MRI scans. That's why our open MRI technology is specifically designed to alleviate any anxiety associated with confined spaces.

The spacious and open environment of our scanners ensures a comfortable experience for patients, reducing the likelihood of claustrophobic feelings and allowing for a more relaxed and stress-free examination.
