Obese Patient in MRI

Obese Patient in MRI-
I was able to fit in a open MRI. Was a tight fit when it came to my arms. I was asked to criss cross my arms and I went through the machine. I am 5"9 at 320pounds. Next time I want to try a closed MRI because The open MRI put me on a slant and I was having trouble holding my leg straight.

A closed MRI has you on a flat surface. A open MRI can adjust the board your laying on. In my case I was on a slant. They put a thing around your knee.
I had a MRI on my knee. The guy performing the MRI, didn't make sure my foot was all the way down and compromised my MRI. Because my foot wasn't placed correctly I had trouble holding my leg still.

I am going to a Orthopedic surgeon in a week. Will update soon.
