Sports injuries can be complicated to image. The patient has to be positioned in a way that will make the injury visible on the scan, but the patient also needs to be able to take the test without making causing unnecessary pain.
The truly open MRI at InnovativeMRI Partners facilities achieves these goals. The patient injured in sports and similar activities can be adjusted to a comfortable position. Then the flex/extension capabilities allow the injury to be scanned at different angles and positions, achieving more accurate and detailed images.
