Upright magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis of spinal disorders

Record ID 32014001201
Authors' objectives: Upright magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic imaging technique whereby patients are imaged in a range of weight-bearing positions that replicate axial loading of the spine during normal activities. Upright MRI may be useful in detecting anatomic spinal anomalies that would otherwise not be detected by conventional (recumbent) MRI. Upright MRI is commonly referred to as positional MRI or kinetic MRI.
