• Upright and Open MRI: That’s Better!

What is Upright MRI?

We were the first centre to provide Upright Open MRI scanning in England. Our scanners are completely different from conventional “tunnel” MRI scanners, or other so called “open” scanners, where you are required to lie down. Using the latest technology, our MRI scanners bring enormous benefits to patients:

In addition to all the usual benefits of MRI scanning, our Upright Open Scanners have two unique advantages: The ability to scan patients in a weight bearing position and as a truly “open” scanner – giving real scanning possibilities to claustrophobic and anxious patients.

Larger Patients and MRI

Many larger patients find it difficult to fit into the constricted space of a conventional “tunnel” scanner. Because our scanner is truly open and the gap between the magnet plates is larger, you will feel much more comfortable and relaxed during the scan.

Claustrophobia and MRI

Peace of mind for patients

We specialise in scanning claustrophobic patients.

To date, we have successfully scanned over 90% of all claustrophobic patients who have previously been unable to tolerate a conventional scanner or even an “open” scanner.

MRI for claustrophobic patients is now possible because the MRI scanners at our Centres are the only ones to cater for these patients. They are completely different from conventional “tunnel” MRI scanners, or other “open” scanners, where you are required to lie down. In our scanners you can sit or stand and even be accompanied by a relative or friend whilst you are being scanned.

We have the ONLY MRI scanners for patients who couldn’t previously be scanned
