The FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI (also known as the Stand-Up® MRI) is not just for claustrophobic patients. Unfortunately, the overwhelmingly positive responses from patients to the extraordinary patient-friendly environment of the scanner, especially claustrophobic and very large patients , can overshadow the scanner’s most important feature – Multi-Position MRI imaging.

The UPRIGHT® MRI (The Stand-Up® MRI) is the only MRI scanner than can scan patients in any position, including sitting, standing, bending (for flexion and extension) or lying down. This unmatched feature is made possible by the scanner’s unique magnet configuration. With the opposing magnetic poles oriented vertically, the generous space between them accommodates a special motorized patient bed that can rotate the patient from recumbent to upright.
