Stress Test MRI in San Antonio: Unique Tiltable MRI

What is a Tiltable MRI Scanner?

Most injured persons experienced more pain and disability when they standing and active and lie down to relieve their symptoms. Most conventional MRI scanners examine while lying down and miss approximately 30% of abnormalities that are only seen or are more significant while sitting or standing.

Why should have a Tiltable MRI

 EKG misses significant heart blockages only displayed during exercise. During a Stress Test MRI in San Antonio, images are obtained of the spine or joints using a Tiltable MRI in San Antonio both while lying down and while standing or sitting in the position that reproduces the pain or symptoms. 

Correlation of Stress Test MRI with Pain Diagrams

Injured persons are asked to record the distribution and relative intensity of pain and neurologic symptoms during weight bearing and while lying down in the form of pain diagrams that can be correlated by the interpreting radiologist while interpreting the Stress Test MRI.

Dynamic Disc Herniation

Dynamic Disc Herniations enlarge when the disc is compressed during weight bearing and the mucoid disc material retracts once the pressure is relieved when the patient lies down. These Dynamic Disc Herniations explain why patients experience positional radiculopathy while standing and relief of radicular symptoms while lying down.
