High Field Stand Up MRI and Sit Down MRI vs. the Traditional Open MRI

Washington Open MRI now has the world's only high field full-body Open MRI scanner that can scan patients in the sitting or standing position.

Our new Stand-Up Open MRI and Sit Down MRI technology allows you to watch TV during your Open MRI scan!  
No more fear of claustrophobia or being squeezed into a tube.
 
Washington Open MRI's Stand-Up Open-MRI is the world's only Patient-Friendly™ scanner.
Our Stand Up Open MRI technology is totally open!


This technological breakthrough is second to none in the MRI imaging world, and fully reimbursed by all insurance carriers at no additional cost to the patient.

The revolutionary scanner features the only MRI-compatible, motorized, multi-positional, patient positioning system, which has been engineered to be fully functional Inside the scanner's magnetic field. It can position the patient for the full range of conventional "lie-down" MRI scanning, or upright for weight-bearing studies. The full length of the spine can be imaged in the normal weight-bearing posture, even with the patient touching their toes for full flexion images of the lumbar spine. Unusual patient positions that are impossible on conventional "lie-down" MRI scanners are routine on Washington Open MRI's new Stand-Up Open MRI.

The patient positioning system is tilted back slightly (approximately five degrees) in order to stabilize the patient and avoid body motion during stand-up scanning. Patients can be positioned facing the poles, which enables a large range of motion for scans of the shoulder. Scans can also be obtained with lateral flexion of the lumbar spine.This new Stand-Up Open MRI is based on FONAR's proven high-field technology, which means it delivers exceptional scanning speed and high-resolution imaging.The combination of the transaxial magnetic field and any of FONAR's array of high signal-to-noise solenoidal surface coils is one of the key reasons why the new Stand-Up Open MRI is second-to-none in image quality. Its full range of advanced software features and state-of-the-art pulse sequences provide unparalleled diagnostic precision.

In Medicine...

Often an upright or Stand Up MRI / Sit Down MRI position is the only position in which the patient's symptoms occur. Certain cardiovascular and neurological disorders exhibit their symptoms primarily when the patient is upright. The same is true of the GI tract and the spine and joints, including hips, knees and ankles. Coupled with MRI's unparalleled ability to "see" soft tissues, Stand-Up Open MRI gives physicians a more global view of pathology and its impact on function.

From the perspective of medicine, Stand-Up Open MRI provides a dramatic view of the body's interior. For the first time, Washington Open MRI brings to the medical practice the newfound ability to see all the body's organs and tissues in their normal position of function - upright.


This technological breakthrough is second to none in the MRI imaging world, and fully reimbursed by all insurance carriers at no additional cost to the patient.
