The larger patient

We are all aware that people are getting larger. Often accessing diagnostic imaging can be a challenge for larger patients as MRI scanners, for example, have a limit to the weight and size of person that can be accommodated. The procedure can be uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing.

This makes it much easier to get into the scanner, and be positioned . The examination can be performed in the standing, sitting or lying position depending on requirements, as the bed can be tilted after the you enter the gantry.

It is  much less stressful for the you, particularly if you are claustrophobic, as there is nothing in front of your face.
