Today at RSNA 2012, GE Healthcare introduced an expansion of the line of Caring Magnetic Resonance (MR) Suites, built by PDC, that now includes designs specific to GE’s Extremity Optima 430s MR scanner.

The Caring MR Suites reflect GE MR's award-winning themes of its wide bore MR family, and include the 'caring hands' design philosophy featuring lighting, interior décor, scenery and music. Patients can choose a theme from 16 artfully selected combinations of mood-lighting, visual scenery, and musical backgrounds before they undergo an MR exam. This gives them control over their environment, and allows them to calm down. The Caring MR Suite was successfully introduced at last year’s RSNA with GE MR’s wide bore Discovery† MR750w and Optima† MR450w systems.

For all 2013 editions of the Caring MR suite, patients can bring their own iPad and iPod content and select videos, photos, or music from their personal collection to be played during the MR exam. The content can be displayed on the high resolution LED screens placed in the ceiling or as window in the MR suite. Furthermore, a novel version of the Caring MR suite has been developed specially for the Optima 430s extremity scanner, rendering the MR exam into a more relaxing and stress-free experience.

“GE is very serious about Humanizing MR,” says Jacques Coumans, Chief Marketing Officer of GE MR. “We believe that patients who feel at ease during the MR exam because they can influence their experience will be more cooperative and require less rescans. And now with the introduction of the revolutionary technology, 510(k) pending Silent Scan*, the noise levels during types of scans will be near ambient levels, allowing the patient to relax even more.”

From the drastic reduction of acoustic noise of the scan to increasing the size of the bore and decreasing the weight of the coils, in combination with the innovative elements of the Caring MR Suite, GE Healthcare is focusing on the patient to Humanize MR.
