As you can see from these photos, the multiposition MRI provides an open and comfortable scan for patients. In addition, the patient can be scanned in a number of positions that are dependent on the type of scan the doctor orders.


I want to share with you my most positive experience with East Bay Upright MRI Center. I thought you might want to know how much this truly special treatment was appreciated.
