Most patients who undergo an MRI scan experience some level of anxiety. As a result, some move so much that they cause motion artifacts, can’t complete the scan, or don’t even show up for the exam. This all results in increased health risks and additional costs. Help patients overcome anxiety by turning MRI into a comfortable, fast, and entertaining experience that is in-sync with modern-day demands. Set up a relaxing atmosphere with calming design elements. Create a comfort zone for patients and ease their anxiety with in-bore entertainment and noise reduction. Unique applications can also accelerate the exam and support your staff in delivering fast and fluid scans.

MRI exams can be uncomfortable and noisy. Put your patients at ease with our comprehensive patient comfort offerings that turn MRI into a comfort zone, including Quiet Suite, soft and ultra-lightweight coils, and positioning aids that raise your patients’ comfort level.
Provide your patients with greater comfort while they undergo an MRI exam with Contour Coils. The soft and lightweight Tim 4G coils provide a blanket-like feeling for your patient by flexibly adapting to their body’s contours. Straps are not needed to hold Contour Coils in place, making positioning fast and easy – and MRI exams less claustrophobic for your patients.
Did you know? The blanket-like feeling of the Contour Coils enhances the patient experience during the MRI scan.
Offer patients quiet examinations of the brain, spine, and large joints with Quiet Suite – without compromising image quality or scan time.
Did you know?
Your patients benefit from a 99 % reduction in sound pressure1 for complete yet quiet neurological and orthopedic MRI exams.
Ease patients’ anxiety
In the bore, patients can feel claustrophobic and tense because they don’t know what’s going on. Educate them before the exam starts using a mini MRI scanner mock-up or MRI models. You can also entertain your patients with infotainment solutions that redefine the MRI experience.
Redefining the MRI experience
Noisy and boring MRI exams are a thing of the past. Redefine the MRI experience with Innovision, the revolutionary in-bore infotainment solution.
High-quality video experience enriched with customized content
Clear audio signals with outstanding sound quality
Efficient MRI noise cancellation by a unique memory-foam pillow
Video display creates a larger bore impression
Patient scan time is indicated on the patient display
Reduce patient stress and anxiety by providing a calming environment with a variety of media content options. The fMRI In-Room-Viewing hardware can also be easily used for patient entertainment in non-fMRI exams. Move the monitor that’s attached to the trolley at the back of the bore and let your patients watch a video via an overhead mirror while undergoing the scan.
Patients concentrate on video instead of the scan
Patients tend to stay calmer and don’t move
MAGNETOM Mini Scanner Mock-up
Let patients see, hear, and feel an MRI scan with our MAGNETOM Mini Scanner Mock-up. The MAGNETOM Mini Scanner Mock-up comes with a sliding table top that can be manually moved in and out of the bore. The MAGNETOM Mini Scanner Mock-up also features two buttons that, when pressed, will play pre-recorded sounds of three different MRI sequences.
Educate anxious patients on the imaging process
MRI imaging sounds are generated at the press of a button
MR Scan Experience App
The MR Scan Experience App is a great way for patients to find out what it’s like to have an MRI scan. It helps ease their fears by offering a 360° virtual MRI scan with realistic sound. The app also shows all necessary steps from referral to results, and it answers frequently asked questions about the technology and the scan process.
Help patients find out in advance what it’s like to have an MRI scan
Redefining the MRI experience MRI exams are performed in a relatively confined space, they're noisy, and they can be long and boring. Innovision redefines the patient experience using a revolutionary in-bore infotainment solution. Patients are engaged by an impressive sound and video experience as soon as they lie on the table. The patient display keeps patient informed about their remaining scan time and displays predefined or custom content. Another big plus: The patient display makes the bore appear virtually larger, preventing a claustrophobic feeling. The Innovision solution also includes comfort pillows made of memory foam that reduce scan noise and deliver clear audio signals to the patient. With Innovision, the patient can hear their favorite music clearly. They can also hear voice commands from the MRI technologist, thanks to the integrated audio system and specialized ear plugs.
Engage your patient even before the table moves into the bore with the unique patient display. The special design provides a comfortable viewing experience. In addition to a video, patients can see a display informing them about the remaining scan time – which can have a comforting effect.
What’s more, the display screen appears to be as far away as the top of a 90 cm bore – making the inside of the bore feel virtually larger. This is an added advantage for all patients, including those who are anxious or claustrophobic.
The patient display is wireless and powered by Innovisionrechargeable batteries that last for over four hours of continuous operation. At less than 6 kg, the system is very easy for the technologist to set up.

Scan patients fast and fluid
Patients who feel uncomfortable during a scan will sometimes move or breathe when they shouldn’t. Scan your patients fast and fluid with clinical applications that complete the MRI exam much faster than conventional methods. Personalize scanning by offering MRI with free-breathing exams for patients who are unable to hold their breath. Provide your staff with our GO Technologies, which make scanning fast, more intuitive and consistent across your scanner fleet.
Accelerate your MRI workflow with BioMatrix and GO Technologies Transform care delivery with BioMatrix and GO technologies for an optimized MRI workflow. From patient preparation to result distribution, these new technologies efficiently streamline your clinical operations by using intuitive and AI-based technologies.
Embrace human nature with BioMatrix Technology Patients have unique individual characteristics: biovariabilities. Different physiologies and anatomies – as well as the way we interact with them and technology – cause unwarranted variations in imaging results. BioMatrix Technology helps overcome these challenges by embracing human nature: Instead of expecting patients to adjust to the technology, BioMatrix automatically adjusts to the individual patient. Only by embracing human nature can we truly personalize examinations and help expand precision medicine.
Setting the pace in MR acceleration with Turbo Suite With rising patient volumes in the face of falling reimbursement, there is a clear need for greater efficiency. At the same time, the quality of exam results should not diminish. We are committed to help you transform care delivery by significantly shortening entire examinations for the whole spectrum of clinical MRI with Turbo Suite. Tailored to your clinical needs, Turbo Suite is comprised of three packages with unique MR acceleration techniques, i.e., CAIPRINHA, Simultaneous Multi-Slice, and Compressed Sensing, which help you accelerate complete exams by up to 50 %3.
