Stand-Up (TM) MRI Specifications
Upright™ MRI Specifications  

Patient Handling System

  • Translation function advances the upright or recumbent patient into center of the magnet
  • Elevator function places standing patient's anatomy of interest at magnet isocenter
  • Tilt function rotates the patient from upright to the recumbent position
  • Table slightly tilted at 5 degrees to stabilize patients during upright scanning
  • Support fixtures for RF receiver coils integrated into the table.
  • Motorized and computer-controlled
  • Fully MRI-compatible

Patient Comfort

  • The only true Open MRI
  • The most non-claustrophobic whole-body Open MRI.
  • Walk in, stand or sit for the scan, walk out
  • Removable seat
  • An unprecedented degree of patient comfort because there is an unobstructed view of the scanner room from inside the magnet. There is nothing in front of the patient's face.
  • Movable, trans-polar stabilization bars to enhance patient comfort and stability during multi-positional scans such as flexion, extension, rotation and lateral bending.
  • Whisper Gradients™ for quiet scans

Position MRI™ (pMRI™)

  • Weight-bearing studies of the human anatomy.
  • Unrestricted range-of-motion for flexion, extension, rotation and lateral bending.
  • Brain scans with the patient upright (vertical)
  • Patient positioning plays a critical role in detecting clinically significant pathology.
