    • Health Trends UPRIGHT MRI’s The New Trend in Radiology By Lou Acosta Doctor Joseph A. Girgis and Doctor Victor J. Trzeciak As an MRI recipient I’ve had the opportunity to go into the cave-like coffen tunnel to pose for MRI images three times. The first time I was stuck at shoulder length, the second and third time I was drugged. I tolded myself that I would probably skip MRI’s from now on since it caused so much anxi- ety in my life, then I heard about an upright MRI machine used in New Jersey and Philadelphia. Athena D. Merrit wrote in the Philadelhia Business Journal that patients were climbing into the new upright magnetic resonance imaging machine at University Dynamic MRI at a turnstile-like rate of 150 scans per month between April and June. Those who are claustrophobic or overweight are drawn to the machine because of its design, which has a larger and less confining “tunnel” than traditional MRIs, said Dr. George Rodriguez, director of Philadelphia-based University Dynamic. The rehab center paid between $1.5 million and $2 million and waited eight weeks to buy and install what Rodriguez refers to as one of the best MRI machines available. Patients will soon have access to another upright MRI, which allows them to have images done in positions that induce their pain, such as kneeling and standing, at a second location at Grant Avenue and Roosevelt Boulevard. Those offices are just some of the many freestanding sites that are popping up across the country, fulfilling an increasing demand for MRI scans. The images can detect such problems as cancer, strokes, joint pain and muscle tears. With millions of scans and X-Rays done annually, how many of the traditional machines have actually failed or given faulty diagnosis for patients. A National Cancer Institute (NCI) Report shows a 70% higher risk of breast cancer for women with scoliosis due to abnormal curvature of the spine, who were exposed to multiple diagnostic X-rays during childhood and adolescence. These women may be at increased risk of dying of breast cancer.” The report goes on to say that “although radiation exposures to breast tissue are much lower today than during the time period covered by this study, they are not insignificant.” Scoliosis affects 2-3% of the population or an estimated 6 million people in the United States, according to the National Sco- liosis Foundation (www.scoliosis.org) Raymond Damadian, M.D., president and founder of FONAR, a company that manufactures Upright MRI’s said, “I’m delighted to announce our inven- tion for the radiation-free evaluation of scoliosis with the FONAR Dynamic™ UPRIGHT® MRI. An accurate evaluation of scoliosis requires the patient to be upright. A conventional recumbent-only static MRI cannot meet this need. Of critical importance, our radiation-free application can be performed in the same amount of time and at the same cost as diagnosis and monitoring by X-ray.” Even former Miami Dolphins field goal kicker Garo Yepremian, has been pushing Upright MRI’s. “As a retired athlete,” said Mr. Yepremian, “I am very familiar with MRI scanners and never liked being placed into the MRI ‘tube’. Even the so-called ‘Open’ MRI where the magnet is just inches from your face is only a little better. When FONAR invited me to New York to be scanned in their new Upright™ MRI scanner, I was not only surprised but ex- cited. I sat down and watched TV while being scanned. It was quiet and comfortable and the pictures were clear and precise. I am very appreciative of Dr. Raymond Damadian and all at FONAR who designed and developed this amazing MRI scanner. I have been touting it all over ever since!” David Terry, Sr. Vice President, and coordinator of FONAR’s Sports program says “We have an opportunity to introduce our product to a special group of peo- ple, the sports celebrity, and the people who attend these events with the celebrities. “Football was an obvious area to start since there are a lot of big men in the NFL and 500 pound patients have been scanned in the Upright™ MRI,” continued Mr. Terry. “Ath- letes from all sports are encour- aged to try our scanner when they need an MRI. If at 200 lbs., I can get stuck in a regular MRI machine and feel suf- focated, what about a person over 250lbs. I say this because most of my 15 year old son’s friends that play football weigh at least 200lbs. or more. In researching our immediate area I’ve found that Cleveland Clinic has put in a new MRI machine in the Fam- ily Health Center in Lorain, and they have an open MRI in West- lake, but Superior Medical Care in Sheffield Village has one of the new FONAR’s Upright™ MRI. Many insurance programs have to get approvals before they consent to, so make sure that you check with them before you make any arrangements. LA LCM.

Teens who aim high as fashion models likely have a lot of drive and ambition; unfortunately, it is extremely difficult to make it as a professional teen fashion model. That is just something that you may want to keep in mind. Another factor that you may want to take into consideration is the type of fashions that your teen would be mod- eling. This may be a little bit hard to determine if they haven’t yet lined up any appearances, but it still something that you will want to take into consideration. Teen fashions include a wide range of clothing pieces. There are swimwear pieces that are often modeled, as well as summer clothes, and so forth. If they want to go further than a local show then they need to get professional photographs of them taken, as well as the hiring of an agent. The only thing that you need to do is be careful with who you choose to work with. With the recent interest in teen and child models, many parents are getting scammed by unsavory individuals. Do the proper research first and you shouldn’t have any troubles trying to get your teen into model- ing. The above mentioned factors are just a few of the many that you may want to take into consideration, should your teenager ask about becoming a teen model. As previously mentioned, working as a teen model is a great way to prepare your child for working in the real world, but it is a decision that should be made by the whole family Attention Retailers The Lorain County Magazine will be featuring local Fashions & Products.

    • Style & Fashion Choosing the right purse for your personality By: Sonia Sood We are positive that no matter how you see yourself -- trendy, corporate or casual -- your ultimate goal is to look “together” - to look beautiful and elegant in your poise and style of clothing and accessories. You spend hours looking for the right outfit and analyze it many times over to make sure it perfects and gives you that eye-catching look. Nevertheless, do you give that same time and scrutiny to your accessories like your purse and handbag before throwing it over your shoulder and leaving the house? You probably did not know that a purse could flatten your curves almost as much as the right pair of pants or shirt. Now that we have your attention to determine your shape and what type purse you should carry. Try to choose a purse shape that is the opposite of your body type. While the shape should oppose your body type for maximum flattery, the size of the bag should be in proportion to your figure. If you are tall and thin, look for the large sloppy bags that lay against you to compliment your figure. If you are short and voluptuous, play off opposites by choosing a handbag that is tall and rectangular or long and sleek. Most women look great with a bag that hits mid-torso because it flatters the waist. Look at the five basic body shapes and find the best purse for your shape: • NARROW TOP/FULL BOTTOM If you have full hips or tummy and small top, draw the eye up with accessories. You should carry a bag with short straps that fits snug under your arm. • FULL TOP/NARROW BOTTOM If the fullness you carry on top is unwanted (some do pay for it, you know) turn the area into a “no man’s land”. Nothing should cause the eye to linger so draw the eye downwards by carrying long slouching bags. • HOUR GLASS If you got it girl, flaunt it! This shape best describes a woman who is balanced on top and bottom with a defined waist and is considered the ideal body shape. You can carry off anything—lucky lady! • NARROW/TOP TO BOTTOM If you are naturally thin, you have always faced the challenges that come with dressing this body shape. If you are unnaturally thin -- by choice -- you probably, prefer to show it off. The key is to add dimension to your profile. Do not choose a bag that will hug the body too much. Think unstructured, bulky type purses. Try anything with horizontal detail in the patterns. • WIDE FROM TOP TO BOTTOM In general, the rounder your figure, the more structured your purse should be. For this body type, shape and color is important. Colors should be muted, monochromatic is best and prints should be kept to a minimum. Draw the eye to the top or center of the torso with a mid-length strap. Now you know the right purse for you! Always remember to try on the bag—just like you would clothing and shoes. Remember that where the purse touches your body, that part of your body is accentuated. For example, if the purse is under your arm against your breast, the eye is drawn up to the bag. So take the time to look for the right purse for you—it is not always the same purse that your best friend carries. A purse should not only carry your personal belongings, it should add to your style and looks. About The Author-- Did you find this article useful?
