The Upright Open MRI scanner is a 0.5T MROpen scanner with an ‘open sky’, stand-up, walk-in design.
It is manufactured by the Paramed MRI Unit of ASG Superconductors. In contrast to conventional horizontal closed-bore MRI scanners, scanning on the Upright Open MRI is possible in a very wide range of postures, including standing, supine (lying down), seated, in squatting, flexion/extension, and more. Custom positioning rigs can be designed and used to recreate specific postures in the scanner.
