Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

At Medserena we specialise in imaging patients suffering from hEDS.

Upright MRI is able to provide a much more thorough examination of hEDS patients due to it’s dynamic element, which is missing from conventional MRI where patients would typically be examined in a passive supine position only.

Our routine scan of the cervical spine is made sitting upright with the neck in the normal position, then flexed and then extended to give a dynamic study.

The craniocervical junction is also scanned sitting to allow full assessment of the atlanto-axial joint (C1-C2), foramen magnum and cerebellar tonsils under the effects of gravity. As well as being performed sitting normally, further images are made with the head turned first to the right and then to the left giving a rotational dynamic study to assess for any instability or dislocation due to the presence of lax ligaments, not infrequently seen in patients suffering from hEDS.
