System Type: GE Optima MR430s 1.5 Tesla Extremity MRI
This is very suitable for patients who have claustrophobia. It is far more superior to Open MRI magnet strengths. The GE Optima MR 430s high strength 1.5 Tesla magnet ensures uncompromised image quality.
PDC Extremity Caring Suite
Patients can relax in a padded chair beside the scanner, reclining as comfortably as in their favorite easy chair at home. Greater patient comfort means less anxiety.
Children can be joined by an adult in the exam room. And because the head remains outside the scanner, the experience is quieter than that with a conventional MR scanner.
The experience while being scanned can be created by the patient by selecting a personal theme, mood lighting and soothing music. These themes consist of traveling to destinations like Tahiti, the Redwood Forest, Under the Sea, the Zoo, and even a new galaxy. These destinations can be view on a state of the art 42 inch flat screen TV and listening soothing harmonized music.
This experience will create an environment that will stimulate a positive distraction and control. As a result, this will create a very relaxed environment and help reduce any anxiety. It's a very unique experience! This suite is 1 out of 29 PDC caring MRI suites world wide!!
