The revolutionary design of FONAR's Upright™ MRI allows patients to simply walk in and be scanned. The Upright™ MRI allows all parts of the body, particulary the spine and joints, to be imaged in the weight bearing state.The system is equipped with our unique MRI-compatible motorized patient handling system that will move the patient into the magnet and place the anatomy of interest into the center of the magnet gap. It also can rotate the vertically-oriented patient into a horizontal position so the patient can be scanned lying down just like in the case of a traditional MRI.


• Mega-Open™ MRI
• Proven 0.6 Tesla performance
• Scan patients lying down
• Scan patients in flexion, extension, rotation and  lateral bending 
• Scan patients in a sitting position
• Position MRI™ (pMRI™)
• Scan Patients in their position of pain
• Scan patients with cerebrovascular insufficiency in the upright position of symptoms
• Patient convenience: walk in, sit or stand during the scan and walk out
• An unprecedented degree of patient comfort due to the unobstructed view of the scanner room from inside the magnet. There is nothing in front of the patient's face
