(NHS patients: with prior agreement and arrangement by the relevant Trust.) All patients require a referral from a healthcare professional.

There is considerable evidence that Upright positional MRI provides medical benefits not duplicated by any other MRI technology

Patient positioning plays a critical role in detecting clinically significant pathology.

  • Compare MRI scans in flexion, extension, sitting, standing, lateral bending and supine positions.
  • Supine-only imaging can underestimate the maximum degree of pathology.
  • There are peer-reviewed publications that demonstrate the impact on treatment.
  • Upright positional MRI offers exceptional patient comfort, but this technology is not just for claustrophobic patients
