Robert Lazarus, MD, director of MRI at Inspira, agreed. “In addition to providing patients with feedback about where they are in the procedure and what to expect, the Ambient Experience offers a somewhat immersive display of sight and sound to decrease fear and anxiety and make the experience more pleasant,” he said.
Overall, Sergi, Gajewski and Lazarus are extremely optimistic about how the new MRI technology will positively impact the patient experience at Inspira, which imaged almost 13,000 MRI outpatient exams in 2018. “
While we always strive to provide patients with the best technology in the area, we’re excited to be able to elevate the MRI experience one step further and take it to a new level,” Gajewski said. “This technology is a game changer for our hospital network.”
“This will hopefully change the way people think about MRI procedures,” Lazarus agreed.
