OPEN MRI MACHINE-STAND UP OR SIT DOWN
The ultimate MRI Machine, stand up or sit down, open open open, not a torture chamber, watch the news on a large screen and it's over 20-25 minutes (American Dynamic Imaging in San Antonio). I had a lumbar MRI there today, and I will not go anywhere else.

Is there a name &\or model number for this thing. I went through that lumbar think earlier this year and that was a bitch. Have had shoulders done 3 times, I hate these contraptions. Not to forget the knees as well.

Comfort of the test is one issue only. You should be concerned about the amount of radiation from
different MRI machines, particularly if you are having multiple MRIs.

I agree on that but if your not 'comfortable', you'll move the mess up the scan & need a redo of that portion. Lower backs are about a 45 min job, some are longer. Not easy to sit perfectly still in a tunnel that you are in very snugly. The noise is another thing even with headphones and music.
I've had\needed so many I probably glow in the dark...lol
