Do you become afraid or have panic attacks when you think about how the space around you becomes tight? Does the thought of your MRI examination in the narrow tunnel system trigger heart palpations, sweating and disorientation? The truy open Upright MRI can take care of your claustrophobia when it comes to an upcoming examination!
The special feature of this MRI scanner is that you do not lie in a narrow tube during the examination but are examined in the truly open system whilst sitting or standing. The advantage: real movement sequences such as rotation, inclination and overstretching, which lead to pain symptoms in everyday life, can be performed and examined in the MRI. That’s because patients often complain of pain symptoms when they are sitting, standing, or walking that usually cannot be detected when lying down.
You will have a completely different examination experience – truly open and without being afraid of the tube!
