Why Choose Upright?

While the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is great for claustrophobic or very large individuals, its advantages far exceed what is necessary to accommodate such patients. In addition to its patient-friendly design, this machine offers unique and unmatched capabilities in weight-bearing and Multi-Position™ MRI imaging.

  • The machine is non-claustrophobic! There is no tube, and nothing goes in front of the patient’s face. It is completely “open” thus markedly reducing anxiety.
  • Patient comfort is a tremendous benefit of this machine. It is significantly quieter than a traditional MRI scanner, and because of its unique design, patients can watch a movie, live TV, or enjoy music of their choice during the scan.
  • The magnet has the ability to scan patients in weight-bearing positions which has enabled physicians to better detect problems so that solutions can be more readily found.   By placing weight on the spine or other joints in question, images can more accurately depict what is happening when the body is in a normal posture rather than a “lying down” position where weight does not affect the area of concern.
  • The FONAR Upright® Multi-Position™ MRI has the capability to scan patients in symptom specific postures.   By doing so, images can be captured to identify the issue in a more exact stature which can lead to improved overall treatment and surgical outcomes should surgery be needed.
  • Certain patients are unable to lie down due to medical issues or concerns. Additionally, some patients are too large to comfortably fit in a traditional MRI scanner. The FONAR Upright® Multi-Position™ MRI is ideal for these patients and can accommodate up to 500 pounds.
