What Is An Open MRI Scan?
Unlike the regular MRI machines, which are closed and tunnel-shaped, an Open MRI machine is open from three sides. If you experience claustrophobia (a common phobia, where people are afraid of closed spaces, being in crowded places, or afraid to stay in a room with no window/door) you can make use of this facility, to get your scan done without any anxiety which they experience to get into the closed MRI machine. Also, patients who are obese, have to get tested with Open MRI as the only option, due to their gigantic anatomy where imaging with regular MRI machines is not possible.
Standing Open MRI Scan
In a Standing MRI machine, as the name suggests, you can get the MRI scanning done by either standing up or sitting down. With this method, the following are some key advantages of the open standing MRI
1) It helps reduce the anxiety –
Open Standing MRI is a great alternative for patients who have a fear of closed places as it is open from three sides.
2) For overweight patient –
For patients who are obese and can not enter the regular closed MRI, Open MRI does the job.
3) Great Imaging for MRI of spine, knee, or leg –
Open standing MRI is better because, in a standing position, the spine, knee, or leg are under the natural pressure of gravity. Thus, Images are better in the standing position than lying flat on a table.
However, there are some disadvantages to this technique, they are – a) Open MRI procedure cannot be considered for taking MRI Brain/Head. b) the magnetic field projected from the machine is lower than the fields used in closed machines.
Reclined Open MRI Scan
In the case of a reclined Open MRI machine, you are asked to lay down on the table that slides into the machine, but the machine is open from three sides. Hence, it helps to reduce anxiety significantly.

Are There Any Preparations For An Open MRI Scan?
Usually, there are no special prerequisites for an open MRI scan. You can continue with your normal diet and your regular activities. However, a few hours of fasting is required if any contrast material is used. The contrast material will be either given orally or injected into the vein, this helps to produce more accurate/contrast images.
You will be requested to take off metallic objects such as jewelry, watch, clips, etc before entering the MRI room, as it may interfere with the waves.
Procedure For An Open MRI Scan
Unlike the normal MRI which has magnets in an enclosed capsule, the open MRI has magnets attached to the top and the bottom.
To begin the scan, you will be asked to lay down flat on a sliding table attached along with the MRI machine. Then, the radiologist will begin the imaging process, the magnets on the machine will produce a strong magnetic field. These signals will be turned into images with the help of a special computer connected to the nearby room from where the radiologist will be operating.
Usually, MRI is a long process and can take about 60-90 minutes depending on your study.
Is Any Complication Involved In The Scan?
Open MRI is considered safe as compared to the other imaging methods, there are little-no risks involved in an open MRI scan.
Few people may develop some kind of allergic reaction if the contrast dye is used in the procedure. Besides, there are no complications in an open MRI scan.
