  Title Clinical pearl. Upright dynamic MRI [case report]
Journal eJ Acad Chiropr Orthoped. 2007 Dec;4(4):Online access only p 3-7
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Chiropractic radiographic procedure often utilizes erect, upright postures during imaging acquisition. In doing so, chiropractic physicians assess the effect of gravity on weight-bearing spinal structures. Unfortunately, when obtaining advanced diagnostic imaging in clinical practice, most available MRI facilities provide images of patients in the non-weight-bearing, recumbent positions.

Upright, dynamic positional and functional MRI scans provide weight-bearing visualization and improved conspicuity of soft tissue structures under physiologic loads that are of significant importance to the biomechanical assessment of spinal dysfunction (Figure 1). Patients can assume varied postures that allow assessment of functional changes related to end range motion.
