  • Why Open MRI for Spine Surgery!

Open MRI for spine surgery is specialized in Dynamic diagnostic MRI imaging of spine and joint by utilizing cutting-edge technology from Italy –UPRIGHT MRI  and other diagnostic technology from Siemens-Germany with experienced physicians ,Radiographers and physiotherapist . We understand that your condition is unique and you need the best way of diagnostic that addresses your individual pain circumstances and challenges.

Open MRI for spine surgery utilizes the revolutionary design of upright MRI that allows patients to simply walk in, sit down and watch TV during the scan. The ultimate comfort and friendly environment for patients perfect for

  • Claustrophobic
  • Pediatric
  • Obesity

Comprised of patient-centric multiple diagnostic and treatment steps, open MRI for spine surgery utilizes cutting-edge technologies and methodologies for the benefit of each patient with outcome best diagnostic result. We have successfully diagnosed tens of thousands of patients in the UAE and Golf region with great outcome since 2009, saving them the need for extra diagnostic way.


many Cases Where the Patient’s Problem was “Missed” Lying down but Seen in UPRIGHT MRI

Here are two scans of one patient with low back pain. The patient had surgery but the pain and symptoms continued to get worse. The image on the left was made with the patient lying down. It shows a normal alignment of the vertebrae. The image on the right was done while the patient was standing in upright MRI and revealed that the patient had a dramatic spinal instability that the lying–down scan did not reveal and that the first surgery did not address.

Following visualization of the spinal dislocation seen by the UPRIGHT MRI, the patient underwent surgery a second time.

The patient has been pain free ever since.

many Cases Where the Patient’s Problem was “Missed” Lying down but Seen in UPRIGHT MRI

Here are the Lumbar MRI Scan of 61 years old male with contrast. The patient had Low back pain in both legs right more than left. Made worse by standing and walking.

On the left image, while the patient is lying down, there is no evidence of any scar tissue extending into the spinal canal to cause neural compromise.

Going into the upright position shows a dramatic change in the appearance of the L3-4 level whereby the facet effusions extrude both posteriorly but also significantly into the central canal with the addition of gravity form significant synovial cysts within the spinal canal bringing about a hydraulic central canal stenosis.
