Upright MRI Information

Weight-bearing, or upright MRI and kMRI with flexion, extension, rotation and lateral bending of the spine has been compared to recumbent MRI(rMRI). Initial reports demonstrated exaggeration of disc bulges, disc protrusions, disc herniations, central canal stenosis, neural foraminal stenosis and lateral recess stenosis. In some cases false-negative disc herniations on rMRI have been discovered during upright or kinematic MRI. Under optimal conditions a specific imaging abnormality may be correlated with a specific posture or kinematic maneuver that reproduces the clinical syndrome.
