Upright, Weight Bearing MRI
What's The Difference?
When a patient is in a upright position, many symptoms and pathologies either occur or are emphasized.
A traditional, Supine MRI may not demonstrate the pathology related to particular symptoms whereas the Weight Bearing MRI gives a new point of view so we can accurately diagnose MSK pathologies affected by the weight-bearing position.
With the Upright MRI, we can gain a more complete
understanding of the joint under examination. The forces
of gravity generate bio-mechanical changes in the human
anatomy. An MRI in the natural, standing position allows
us to obtain extra details that would not be detected normally.
