Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic tool that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create images of the body. MRI scans are used to diagnose a variety of diseases and conditions, including brain tumours, spinal cord injuries, stroke, carotid artery disease, bleeding and many others. This article describes how remote equipment operation for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used in healthcare facilities and the different types of remote operation systems available. It also details tasks related to nCommand remote operation of MRI scanners and explains why it’s so important to have remote operation this capabilities in your facility.
Controlling the MRI scanner from the Command Center (a remote location) instead of the control room inside the MRI suite has many advantages:
nCommand also offers a chat device that gives the possibility to talk to other professionals in the same room or in the location where the exam is being conducted (voice messages can be sent to the operator or the patient). Overmore Furthermore, preset shortcuts, key indicators, metrics, and operational information available on-screen increase efficiency and agility for the operator.
Remote operation of the MRI scanner provides numerous benefits to the healthcare facility, most notably increased patient safety. The risks associated with ferromagnetic materials entering the MRI magnet are eliminated by controlling the MRI scanner from a remote location.
