Stand-Up MRI of SW Florida Wins Naples Daily News 2014 – “People's Choice Awards” for Best Imaging Center

Naples, FL

The 12th Annual Southwest Choice Awards Committee counted the votes and tallied the emails. The savvy residents of Naples awarded Stand-UP MRI of SW Florida as the Best Naples MRI Imaging Center in Southwest Florida.

Employees from 300 companies gathered on Thursday, July 17 to celebrate the 12th annual Southwest Florida Choice Awards. In the past, the Southwest Florida Choice Awards were held at the Artis-Naples. This year, company representatives enjoyed the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club.

The awards, presented by the Naples Daily News, honor 127 different service categories, including different types of health services ,restaurants, attorneys, Health clubs, Contractors and more.

More than 117,000 votes were cast this year, the largest number of votes in the history of the Southwest Florida Choice Awards.

“We are honored to win this award and believe it is a reflection of our company's purpose to serve customers with excellence and add value to our community,” said Matt Lister, the Naples Florida Site Manager for the Open MRI Naples facility. Stand-Up MRI also has facilities in Orlando, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Ormond Beach and Tallahassee.

Stand-Up MRI is the only MRI scanner in existence that allows patients to be scanned in the conventional recumbent position as well as in upright positions, usually the sitting position or in other numerous weight-bearing positions, i.e. standing, sitting as well as in flexion and extension. Because of its unique ability, the Stand-Up™ MRI has successfully detected pathology that went undetected on traditional lie-down MRI machines.

The Stand-Up Naples Open MRI often sees the patient's problem that other scanners cannot because they are lie-down only. The patient-friendly MRI has a near-zero claustrophobic rejection rate by patients. As a Stand-Up MRI Naples customer states, “If the patient is claustrophobic in this scanner, they'll be claustrophobic in my parking lot.” Approximately 85% of patients are scanned sitting while they watch a 42″ flat screen TV.

Stand-Up is the only “true” Open MRI in SW Florida. If you have claustrophobia or are a larger patient, this Open MRI machine is for you. For more information on Stand-Up MRI in Naples services and facilities, visit
