Most X-ray examinations of the spine, hips, knees, ankles and feet are made with the patient weight-bearing. We are now able to offer the same positional imaging using MRI, which not only shows bone detail, but more importantly soft tissue detail not available on a conventional x-ray. Examination of the knee in the weight-bearing position also allows for views in flexion and extension. Furthermore multiple views can be made in varying positions between flexion and extension to study patellar tracking.
The Upright Positional MRI System offers the unique possibility of scanning patients in an upright or weight-bearing position.DOWNLOAD CLINICAL FLYER
