Medserena Upright MRI Centres

The Medserena Upright MRI Centre focuses on providing a superior patient experience in an established modern facility in Kensington as well as at our new Centre in Manchester, which will be opening soon. The Centres are equipped with an innovative Upright Positional MRI scanner, delivering unique dynamic MRI studies of the whole spine, knees and hip joints. This MRI scanner is truly open, so is very well tolerated by patients with claustrophobia as there is nothing in front of the patient’s face. This provides a diagnostic solution for claustrophobic patients who may not otherwise be able to have an MRI. A wide range of examinations are available besides the spine and joints, including brain, pelvic floor, and prostate scans.

Whiplash injuries are a specialty as our technique scans higher up the neck than conventional scanners to include the often missed Cranio-cervical junction-as well as allowing more diagnostic detail to be obtained using unique flexion and extension views.

MRI imaging has long been used as a way to image and assess the spine for pathology, scanning patients supine. It may now be argued that scanning patients in a weight-bearing position has the potential to deliver a more precise diagnosis, thus improving patient management.

Upright Open MRI, a new concept providing real benefits to patients

  • Weight-bearing and variable patient positioning enables a more precise diagnosis
  • Truly open system enhances patient comfort for an anxiety-free examination
  • Unique ability to scan the spine in flexion or extension

Patients who cannot undertake a conventional MRI scan due to claustrophobia, large body size, or inability to lie down, also benefit from this truly open scanner. It is also a radiation-free way to evaluate scoliosis in the standing position.
