MR Caring Suite
Does the thought of having an MRI make your heart race and your palms sweat? The loud noise, enclosed space, being perfectly still…
The new MR Caring Suite changes things by focusing the environment on you. Designed specifically to reduce the anxiety many associate with an MRI, the MR Caring Suite creates a calming experience through the use of sight, sound and touch.
Humanizing the MRI
Before even entering the suite patients are handed an iPad and are asked to choose between 16 combinations of mood-lighting, visual scenery and musical backgrounds. Don’t like any of the options? No problem. Simply bring in your own device and choose music from your personal playlist.
A Calming Sight and Softer Touch
The MR Caring Suite includes a wide brightly-lit 70 cm bore, or tunnel, flexible foam coils that embrace your body to make you more comfortable, and variable density foam padding and a comfort tilt table to minimize pressure points. The machine provides the ability for scans to be performed feet first, allowing you to maintain eye contact with the technician and eliminating the need to be repositioned during the scan.
Spartanburg Regional is the second healthcare system in the state and first in the Upstate to humanize the MRI experience. Our two MR Caring Suites are located at Regional Outpatient Services, North Grove Medical Park. Talk to your doctor today about having your next MRI in the MR Caring Suite.
