About the Scanner

With our Upright Open MRI system we are easily able to perform lumbar spine applications, dynamic imaging, and weight–bearing imaging quickly and cost-effectively.

Unlike other systems, ours is totally open to the environment–making the patient relaxed, cooperative and reassured.  That contributes to superior image quality and improved productivity as well as allowing maximum flexibility in customizing clinical protocols.

  • Scan patients in flexion, extension, rotation and
    lateral bending

  • Scan patients in a sitting position

  • Scan patients lying down

  • Scan patients in their position of pain

  • Scan cardiovascular patients upright to prevent discomfort lying down

Apart from these clinical applications, the truly open design of the scanner makes it ideal for scanning claustrophobic patients.

Claustrophobic patients are welcome to come and view the scanner prior to their scan, to alleviate any concerns that they may have. Our team are experienced with helping those suffering from claustrophobia have an anxiety free experience at our centre.
