The health and safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority. In order to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and maintain a clean, safe environment at Stand Up MRI, we are asking that all patients who have been exposed to COVID-19 or who currently have ANY symptoms of respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat) do not come to our facilities at this time. This includes those who may have recently traveled to an area with wide spread COVID-19 and/or that have been in contact with someone who has tested positive. Additionally, we recommend that all patients 65 years and older contact their doctor and discuss whether or not their scheduled imaging test can be rescheduled for a later date. If your imaging test must be done now, please be assured that we will do our best to provide a safe environment and adhere to the strictest CDC guidelines.
As the name of the facility suggests, Standup MRI and 3T Imaging will be equipped with two MRI scanners – a Stand-Up® MRI and a 3.0T Open-Bore MRI. The 3.0T MRI was installed in June of 2020. The Stand-Up® MRI is expected to be installed in early 2021.
The unique physical configuration of the 0.6T Stand-Up® MRI (A product of FONAR Corporation) makes it the world's most Patient Friendly™ MRI and also the only MRI that can scan patients in any position, allowing it to detect certain problems that would be underestimated or completely missed by any other type of MRI.
The Lumina Open-Bore 3.0T (a product of Siemens) is a perfect complement to the Stand-Up® MRI, the combination of the two providing patients with the “Best of Both Worlds.”
