When MRI goggles hit the scene, it was an innovative way to help patients better tolerate MRI by means of positive distraction and alleviating the sensation of being in an enclosed space. And indeed, MRI goggles have helped many patients successfully complete scans; however, there are also drawbacks that can hinder scan completion and slow workflow.
For patients who are claustrophobic or anxious, placing a confining piece of equipment on the patient’s face can exacerbate existing claustrophobia and anxiety.
Even for patients who don’t experience claustrophobia and anxiety with MRI, placing MRI goggles on a patient’s face may create discomfort and lead to movement and or scan disruption.
Since MRI goggles come in close contact with the patient’s face, the goggles must be thoroughly disinfected to prevent any risk of cross-contamination. Fears of cross-contamination might also lead to increased patient anxiety and or rejection of the option.
With the video placed so close to patient’s eyes, there is a risk of dizziness sensations for patients.
The process of thoroughly disinfecting and properly placing MRI goggles takes valuable time that can slow workflow and productivity.
Today, we offer 3 proven MRI In-Bore Viewing options that eliminate nearly all of the above risks, and include additional benefits.
Installed in as little as 15 minutes, our new Wireless MRI In-Bore Viewing Display allows patients to view the video display with your choice of mirror option or simply a pillow to prop the head for certain scans. This helps eliminate feelings of claustrophobia from both being in the bore and from having anything too constricting on or near the face.
