  6. 6. 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.
