Cobalt transforms patient experience with in-bore infotainment for MRI

UK imaging charity Cobalt Health has implemented the Innovision in-bore infotainment solution from Siemens Healthineers to deliver a video and sound experience as patients lie on the MRI table.

This addition comes as the medical charity upgrades its imaging facilities to include the Magnetom Sola 1.5T MRI system. The combination of in-bore infotainment technology and the wide bore of the Magnetom Sola is part of a project to enhance the charity’s claustrophobia management service and improve patient experience. Since the implementation of Innovision, every patient has been able to have their scan successfully.

Cobalt receives claustrophobic patient referrals from across the UK for this service, which has been operational for over 15 years. Equipment such as the Magnetom Sola is central to alleviating patient anxiety because wide bore systems, comfortable scanning beds and adjustable lighting help to improve the patient experience.
