“As a claustrophobic patient who even needed Valium to use an “Open MRI Centre” I can only applaud the Upright MRI scan I have ever had!”
Patient – Innovative MRI – Orlando (USA)
“.. I have been in many scanners in my life and it is not always a pleasant experience… not to be confined into a tight space will have a huge benefit”
Patient – Leeds Upright MRI Centre (UK)
“I had a bad experience elsewhere but this was stress free, easy and no problem.”
Patient – Birmingham Upright MRI Centre (UK)
“I am claustrophobic, and this is the first time I’ve been in a upright scanner. It was brilliant compared to ordinary MRIs”
Alan Breen DC, PhD Professor of MSK Healthcare – AECC University College – Bournemouth (UK)
“MROpen can be used both to study the service uses of such scanners and to conduct spinal biomechanics research that uses positional data (e.g. measuring and comparing disc height, volume and area in different positions).”
Penny Gowland - Professor of Physics, Faculty of Science Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre – Nottingham University
“Open scanners give a whole new dimension to MRI, which can be used to study the effects of gravity on structure and function, and also dynamic processes in the human body...”
Martyn Beckett, Director of Operations, InHealth (UK)
" We provide a service to patients who are unable to undergo conventional MRI due to suffering from claustrophobia or patient habitus. We’re proud to achieve a 98% scan completion success rate and regularly receive positive patient feedback. "
#MROpenEvo provides superior comfort, greatly reducing the problem of claustrophobia and patient anxiety that often occurs in closed “tunnel” systems, causing distress in both patients and MRI operators.
