Sport Specific MRI

The symptoms of the majority, if not all sports injuries are experienced when upright, and weight- bearing. A complete, accurate MRI assessment can only be made when in the position of maximum pain/discomfort.

This is NOT possible lying down in a conventional MRI scanner but is easily assessed when weight- bearing or in the position of maximum discomfort, in an Upright MRI Scanner. Patient positioning plays a critical role in detecting otherwise occult pathology.

Sport specific positional weight-bearing MRI imaging demonstrates the full extent of athletic injury, which is not possible in conventional supine scanners, offering a unique patient positioning system and outstanding flexibility in scan technique.
