Happier Patients = Better Imaging

Anxious, uncomfortable patients move more during MRI exams. This results in poor quality diagnostics and aborted scans. [1,2]

Rapport* will provide a reliable two way audio and video link between the MRI patient and the technologist, plus a complete patient entertainment system. It will offer a cost-effective approach to patient comfort, delivering streamlined workflows at a lower cost to the provider.

MRI Comfort, Communication & Entertainment

In today's MR suite, patient comfort is the key to avoid aborted or repeated scans.

Patients undergoing a medical imaging examination are often in a vulnerable state. They come to the exam with little knowledge of what to expect, and lots of apprehension about the procedure. The challenge is to get high quality diagnostics from every scan.

Rapport*  MRI communication and entertainment system will be a complete, cost-effective approach to patient comfort; it will provide a two way audio and video link between the MRI patient and the technologist, plus a complete patient entertainment system:

  • 32" 4K LCD in-room display
  • Wireless patient headset with high quality headphones and microphone
  • Wireless patient remote control
  • Versatile trolley to allow the display to be deployed anywhere in the magnet room
  • Touchscreen technologist console

All in a sleek integrated package that aims to makes the MRI experience relaxed for your patient, and efficient for you.


Provide Reassurance with 2-way Communication

Anxious and claustrophobic patients produce motion artefacts and other unwanted effects; such as increased heart rate, blood pressure and inability to hold their breath for the required time.

Rapport* will provide two-way audio and visual communication from in-bore to the control room. This will allow you to reassure your patient and check their well being throughout the scan, and the patient will also be able to see and hear you or their relatives outside.


Promote Relaxation with Audio-Visual Entertainment

Rapport* will help patients to forget their surroundings by listening to music or watching videos with our high quality headphones and display. The images and sound presented to your patient will be mirrored in the control room, so you will always know exactly what they're experiencing.


Empower your Patient with Wireless Control

Rapport* will include a tactile, ergonomically designed remote control that will let your patient choose how they want to be entertained, and allow them to adjust the volume to their preferred level.


Streamline your Workflow with Rapport

Rapport* will meet the ever-changing needs of the MR environment. The patient screen will be viewable directly anywhere in-room, or via a mirror from in-bore, and the wireless headphones and remote control will provide complete flexibility. The system will be compatible with 1.5T, 3T and 7T scanners from all major manufacturers.

"Patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can often experience anxiety during the scanning procedure [1]. In some cases, this anxiety can result in a claustrophobic event, with the scan requiring termination early, or the patient simply refusing to be scanned, with recent literature suggesting this occurs in 12 of 1,000 patients.
