Upright MRI of the Joints

MRI scans of the joints including the shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, elbow, wrist and feet.

Examination of weight-bearing joints such as the knee and hip joint in the natural, weight-bearing, standing position.

Many X-ray examinations of the spine, ankles and hips are made with the patient weight-bearing. We are now able to offer the same positional imaging using MRI, which not only shows bone detail, but more importantly soft tissue detail not available on a conventional X-ray.

Examination of the knee in the weight-bearing position also allows for views in flexion and extension. Furthermore multiple views can be made in varying positions between flexion and extension to study patellar tracking.
