Lucky Us! Now we can watch TV as they check us for cancer!

At RSNA in Chicago, Philips is introducing its new ‘in-bore patient distraction’ offering for patients undergoing head-first scans under MRI. Currently, only exams that keep the patient’s head outside the scanner allow for headphones to be worn and a display to be seen.

The new Philips solution is essentially a video screen positioned outside the bore and a mirror attached to the head coil that lets patients focus on what’s playing on the screen instead of worrying about the exam. Moreover, sound is also piped to the patient to help distract from the crunchy MRI noises.


Yup, we are SO lucky!
