For conditions that involve nerve root compression, spinal
stenosis, or disc bulge, pain is more often felt when the
patient is standing or in a weight-bearing position than
when lying down. SpineNevada Minimally Invasive Spine
Institute’s 15,000 square foot office in Sparks includes the
Open InMotion MRI. The MRI selected by SpineNevada is
the G-Scan Brio by Esaote and is specifically designed to
offer the highest level of examination of musculoskeletal
In order to improve spine care, SpineNevada recognized years ago that imaging
capabilities must also improve. For conditions that involve nerve root
compression, spinal stenosis, or disc bulge, pain is more often felt when the
patient is standing or in a weight-bearing position than when lying down.
The open and tilting design of SpineNevada’s InMotion MRI (the G-Scan
Brio by Esaote) is an innovative way of doing MRI. The position of the patient
becomes an integral part of the exam outcome. In addition, InMotion MRI is
accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Open InMotion MRI provides great patient comfort and
features the latest imaging performance and sequences.
The excellent ergonomics and unique features of the
InMotion MRI is designed with patient benefit and convenience
The SpineNevada Radiology department is led
by Dr. Stefan Franciosa who is dual board-certified in
Dr. Stefan Franciosa Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology.
Using a fast acquisition sequence, the touch screen
display will show the MR image in real-time to ensure fast
and accurate positioning. The average scan time of Open
InMotion MRI is 20-25 minutes.
European studies have revealed 20 to 30 percent
more findings with weight-bearing MRI imaging
than traditional non-weight bearing MRI.
If you experience more pain or numbness when you are standing or sitting, insist on a Stress Test MRI today. It’s your MRI – don’t take it lying down.
**The Spine Nevada MRI scheduling team will work with each invididual to ensure the InMotion MRI is the right choice. Our support staff will request specific measurements of the patient to ensure the MRI is a good fit.
