Don’t take pain and injury lying down!When you’re injured and in pain you want clinical management of your issue to begin as soon as possible – that’s exactly what Bayside Standing MRI provides. Bayside Standing MRI introduced the first standing magnetic resonance imaging or MRI service in Victoria. Unlike traditional MRIs, which have the patient lying down only, the standing MRI can scan particular regions of your body in a variety of positions – including standing up. In this weight bearing position, we can better assess a range of issues and injuries. In fact, in some cases, we can detect issues that won’t be detected in a lying down position. To achieve this benefit with our service, it essential that a direct comparison is made between imaging in both lying down and upright positions – using the same machine. As well as improved scanning, Bayside Standing MRI aim to provide you with the fastest possible assessment of your injury. Your General Practitioner, specialist or other registered health care practitioner can refer you directly to us or you can come to our centre without a referral. This can shave weeks off your assessment time, which means you’ll be able to have your injury – and the associated pain – attended to quickly.
