Ambient Open MRI

In addition to our three state-of-the-art MRI units, we’ve upgraded our 3.0T Philips Elition MRI to complement our two existing 1.5 Tesla magnets and our 1.0 Tesla High Field Open MRI.

Ambient Experience for Open MRI

A highly-sophisticated projector system called the Ambient Experience has been added to the1.0T Open MRI room. The Ambient Experience virtually transforms the room into a multi-dimensional theatre where images such as fish or nature themes are projected onto the specially-designed walls.

Each of the themes has accompanying lighting and music which makes children and anxious adults feel more relaxed and at ease during their procedure.
As soothing music fills the room, the lights are dimmed, and marine life frolics around. Or clusters of cottony clouds dance by. Or fields of wheat wave in a gentle breeze. These, or other larger-than-life images of your choosing, are projected onto the circular walls for relaxation and enjoyment. Each of the themes has accompanying sounds and music which reduces anxiety and replaces it with amazement. The Ambient Experience provides our pediatric, adolescent and adult patients the absolute maximum in patient comfort, and breaks down the anxiety and tension levels.
As patients check-in for an Open MRI exam, they can choose from a variety of themes. As soon as the patient enters the room, the theme is initiated, and the environment becomes tailored to the patient’s preferences.

Pediatric Blood Drawing

For patients who require blood tests, the Imaging Center will provide laboratory services to pediatric patients to draw blood during MR procedure.

The Kitten Scan

A new miniature scanner has been added to the waiting area to help children prepare for their test. Children select a toy, and place it on an interactive miniature scanner to see why the toy is “sick.”
