Ambient Experience

At a glance

  • Hear how anxious patients are helped to better tolerate the imaging
  • Learn how children get through the exams more easily by distracting them with a beautiful environment and videos
  • See how the design is more clever and the lighting enables the perception that it's much more open


Supporting anxious patients during their MRI exam

Tufts Medical Center in Boston is really pleased with the Ambient Experience set-up as part of their new 3T installation. They feel it really helps more anxious patients get through the exam more easily, especially children.

"One of the best features of this new magnet is the Ambient Experience. We have a lot of anxious patients, and this will help them tolerate the imaging better."
