Children are not little adults that just lie still during a medical examination or a scan. They are nervous and uncertain of their surroundings, and are often accompanied by worried parents.
At Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital in Stockholm, doctors, radiologists, videographers, and engineers came together to try a different approach. They created a relaxing, anxiety-free environment with the most modern scanning technology, which allows for precise imaging at low dose, despite any kicking feet.
The new scanning room, pictured here, directs a patient’s attention to their SOMATOM Force by displaying images of stars, rainforest backgrounds or simply flickering lights on the scanner. Popular cartoons are also projected on the ceiling for further entertainment.
The new scanning room really worked, and not only for the children. “We saw the positive effect it had on the parents”, says Lena Gordon-Murkes, MD, Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden.
The statements by Siemens Healthineers’ customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
