Here is a 360 view inside one of the ultrasound imaging rooms at Northwestern Medicine's Central DuPage Hospital in the Chicago western suburbs. The room has a Philips Epiq ultrasound machine. On the shelves above the sink in the corner of the room is a Nanosonics trophon technology probe sterilizer. It uses hydrogen peroxide that is sonically activated to form a sub-micron particle mist. The staff said these sterilizers are located in every room and have helped simplify Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH) inspections. The ceiling lighting panel in the center of the room has a sky and cloud image, making the room appear as if it has a skylight, which acts as a patient calming measure. The double doors into the rooms are also oversized to allow easy patient transport in and out of the rooms.
