Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Comfortable and stable patient positioning in mri

When positioning patients in the MRI, the focus is not only on comfortable and pressure point free positioning outside the coils, but also on stable immobilization inside the coils. Due to the ever shorter examination intervals at the MRI, workflows must be fast and smooth and any causes for delays must be avoided.

This is not always easy for a variety of reasons. For example, uncooperative patients (age, disease, etc.), challenging patient positions (Superman, etc.) or special coil characteristics (particularly narrow or too large, depending on the coil type and anatomy) can slow down the workflow or impair image quality. Adequate patient positioning is a basic requirement for efficient and high-quality MRI imaging.
