December 14, 2016 — Patients undergoing magnetic resonance (MR) exams will find a relaxing environment with Toshiba Medical’s new MR Theater. Creating an immersive virtual experience for patients, the MR Theater gives patients a visual focal point to distract them from the exam, encouraging them to relax and stay still, enabling clinicians to produce efficient, high-quality imaging.

Available on Toshiba Medical’s Vantage Galan 3T and Vantage Titan 1.5T/cS Edition, the MR Theater projects peaceful, virtual reality images onto a dome-shaped screen inside the bore. The images move with the patient table for continuous display and the visual experience helps clinicians put their patients at ease.

Combined with Toshiba Medical’s Pianissimo quiet scan technology, which helps reduce acoustic noise during the MR exam, patients are able to listen to in-ear audio as the MR Theater provides continuous projections for a truly engaging experience.

Machine Learning IDs Markers to Help Predict Alzheimer's

Neurologists use structural and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify changes in brain tissue (both gray and white matter) that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.
