Whether you have been involved in a minor fender-bender or head-on collision, it is vital to be evaluated and receive appropriate medical and/or integrated care. Patients often come to Dynamic Medical Imaging (DMI), the leading experts in personal injury imaging suffering with a multitude of symptoms, including soreness, pain, stiffness, muscle spasms, headaches, and/or dizziness. Some symptoms may not be immediately experienced, and therefore develop days, weeks or months later. Without proper diagnostic imaging, symptoms may worsen, radiate to other areas, or possibly result in a lifetime of pain.
We understand, the physical and emotional trauma of being in a car accident, and strive to provide a positive, stress-free scanning experience.
DMI has earned the respect and trust of many patients, physicians, and attorneys. Providing accurate and detailed diagnostic imaging, is key to treatment, and if necessitated – compensation. If you have been involved in a car accident, our Upright MRI can provide the compassionate care and expert imaging you need and deserve:
1. The Whole Picture: Does it hurt more to stand, bend, or sit down? If so, your physician may not receive the whole picture with a recumbent scan (lying down), which is non-weight-bearing. DMI’s Upright MRI allows patients to be scanned while standing, seated, as well as in numerous positions – flexion, extension, lateral bending, and rotation. Patients have the ability to be scanned in the position or positions of pain.
“Significantly more pathology is discovered through an MRI scan done with a patient in a standing-neutral or standing extension position compared to a conventional MRI in which the patient is in a recumbent position.” – Steven Brownstein, MD, Board-Certified Medical Radiologist who authored the foreword, Essentials of Skeletal Radiology textbook.
2.Imaging: DMI’s Upright MRI is twice as strong as most open MRIs currently used, to produce high resolution imaging and achieve diagnostic precision.
3. Less Anxiety: After a car accident, patients may feel an increase in anxiety. In an effort to minimize anxiety associated with being in an enclosed MRI (tube-like tunnel), our caring and knowledgeable staff can provide open imaging, thus eliminating a closed-in or claustrophobic atmosphere. A comfortable seat while scanned, the ability to watch television, and having a family member or friend nearby during DMI’s Upright MRI – offers an enormous benefit.
