UPRIGHT MULTI-POSITION MRI

Western Imaging Group has the ONLY Fonar Open UPRIGHT® Multi-Position MRI in Australia, one of 140 throughout the world. The Upright MRI is a totally revolutionary machine.  The open and upright design means you do not have to lie in a narrow tunnel. It allows weight bearing images, symptom specific imaging, imaging of children without anaesthesia, imaging of larger/obese patients, and imaging of those who suffer from claustrophobia.

Fonar is the oldest MRI company in the world, producing the first ever commercial MRI scanner in 1980 and headed by the man who developed MRI, Dr Raymond Damadian.  The traditional lie-down scanners to which you refer now were the result of his work and production.
