Researchers at UBC are using magnetic resonance imaging of joints under stress in the hopes of advancing treatments for osteoarthritis of the hips and knees. Using the only upright open MRI scanner of its kind in Canada, Vancouver Coast Health’s Centre for Hip Health and Mobility can capture images of joints throughout their range of motion.

Specialized upright scanners at UBC give researchers images that could help osteoarthritis patients
