MRI Case Studies

There is considerable clinical evidence that Weight-Bearing UPRIGHT® MRI provides medical benefits that are not duplicated by any other MRI

Postoperative Hypermobile Instability Postoperative Hypermobile Instability

Case #1: Postoperative Hypermobile Instability

You need the upright scan to see the spinal instability in this patient with recurrent low back pain following an L4-S1 fusion.

Chiari Malformation Visualization When Upright

Case #2: Chiari Malformation Visualization When Upright

Upright imaging revealed increased downward herniation of the cerebellar tonsils (arrow). Subsequent neurosurgery (a posterior fossa decompression) eliminated the patient's sudden drop attacks.

Case #3: Upright Dynamic MRI Reveals Hidden Disc Herniation

You need the upright scan to see the position-dependent focal posterior disc herniation at the C4/5 level (arrow). Note the asscociated spinal cord compression on the standing-extension scans in both the sagittal (top left) and axial planes(bottom left).
