Anyone have recent success with a Upright MRI/Standing MRI/ kMRI ?

Just wondering if anyone has had recent success with Stand Up/Upright MRI /kMRI vs a regular MRI.

I have had regular MRIs that shows a small bulge at l5-that keeps growing, now I am going for a standing with different positions. My symptoms get worse with standing /walking.

There are older posts on these forums but I cannot find a recent post.

    in which the upright MRI identifies a problem, where the standard ones may fail.

    However, the overall magnet strength and MRI resolution is weaker on the uprights, so for now, I think the general consensus is the standard MRI equipment.
