Imaging is to be seen, not heard.
Comprehensive noise management for MR imaging
In addition to Quiet Suite1, our family of MR systems have numerous noise reduction features. They collectively contribute to a quieter MR exam, without compromise to efficiency.
- Increase patient satisfaction by reducing anxieties and stress
- Enhance patient management: reduce patient set-up time, reduce rescans and rescheduling due to noncompliance
- Increase assurance of high quality, diagnostic images with less patient movement
- Encapsulation of entire magnet
- Efficient floor decoupling reduces noise transferred to the building
- Noise-optimized cold head
- Special epoxy resins and casting technology damp vibrations
- Reduced gradient stray field decreases eddy currents
- Force compensation for all axes
- Acoustically soft and mechanically rigid gradient coil mount in magnet
- Body coil tube extended beyond the gradient coil
- Copper structures slotted and glued to the tube to reduce high frequency noise
- Acoustically decoupled by special suspensions
- User selectable mode
- Reduces the max. slew rate and max.amplitude of the gradients
- Enables very quiet imaging techniques
“The benefits of Quiet MRI can be seen at three levels – the patients, the MR technicians and image quality. Patients, especially the young, the claustrophobic elderly and patients with tinnitus find it more comfortable and they move less. Technicians find it easier to communicate with patients and have less rescans. As patients move less, our image quality is accordingly improved.”2
