It is great news to be able to celebrate the opening of the new pediatric MRI’s “patient experience”. Financed by Fundación Aladina with a cost of over 100.000€, this new technology never before implemented in Spain, allows children to face challenging medical procedures such as the MRI with less stress.
Fear and anxiety are the reason many sedations are necessary before undergoing tests such as this. The “patient experience” allows kids to choose the projections they want to see in the MRI room and to watch a movie while having the procedure, it now feels more like a fun adventure rather than a scary moment. Thanks to this pioneering system, sedation of children can be avoided in 95% of cases.
Many children will benefit from this wonderful technology and we are happy to continue to support the Hospital Virgen de la Arrixaca.
Meet Leire, one of the first little warriors to enjoy the new experience in THIS VIDEO.
