Weight Bearing MRI system places an axial load on the patient's spine during the MRI procedure so a physician can assess spinal pathologies under weight-bearing conditions. Axial compression can be used to simulate the actual situation when the patient feels pain.
Axial-Loaded High Field Spine Imaging:
More relevant, enhanced image
Safe and Non-invasive technique
Simulates upright position
Clinically proven and FDA approved
Advanced approach to diagnosing previously undetected problems
MRI of L-Spine with weight bearing provides the most biomechanically accurate MRI study
INDICATIONS: Neurogenic Claudication, Sciatica, Lumbar Back Pain, Spinal Stenosis/ Disc Herniation, Synovial Cysts, among others.
Please consult your physician about weight bearing versus Non-weight bearing MRI.
