Easy, Effective, Affordable Breathing Control
The impact of respiratory motion on lengthy abdominal and cardiac MRI exams has long been a frustrating problem that can significantly affect image quality.Existing Solutions are Inadequate
Complex technology that attempts to compensate for respiratory movement when patients free-breathe adds time to scans and often is not productive.
Alternatively, asking patients to attempt a series of long, unaided breath-holds in the intimidating MRI environment is often unsuccessful. Patients need feedback to return to the same point in the respiratory cycle. Without that, thre is no consistency in image aquisition.An Answer in the MRI
Now, Breath Hold provides an effective, simple and affordable solution, which may lead to enhanced patient data, shorter exam times and greater patient comfort. By following a simple series of lights, Breath Hold provides patients with that valuable feedback on their respiratory cycle and enables them to take control of their own breathing. The device is simple to use and affordable. Technologists learn to use the device in a matter of minutes.Specially Designed for Use in the MRI
Optimized for MRI use, Breath Hold emits a wireless signal that passes through the MRI bunker to enable staff in the MRI suite to view patient breathing on their own monitor. The Breath Hold patient monitor is specially designed to be safe in the magnet room with a special MRI-compliant tripod to make viewing for patients easy and comfortable. Breath Hold may be used with a full range of magnet strengths.
