Amidst the silence, we heard the patient.

You need to hear it to believe it.

Humanizing MR is our promise to change how patients feel, see and hear MR for the better. And when it comes to hearing, we had a lot to do. Typical MR scans can reach over 100 decibels. That's roughly equivalent to the sound of a jackhammer, a speeding freight train or what you'd hear sitting in the front row of a rock concert. As you can imagine, this level of noise can add to patient anxiety. It can cause patients to stress about the source of the noise and interfere with patient and technologist communication.

To help make patients feel as comfortable as possible during a scan, we decided to change the way they hear MR forever. The result is Silent Scan, a revolutionary neuro acquisition technique that makes the sound of an MR scan as silent as a whisper. And better still, we've accomplished this while still providing the excellent image quality clinicians need to make a confident diagnosis.
