Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures are often noisy, lengthy and require patients to remain still for extended periods of time. As you can imagine, this is not an easy task, especially for a child. Through a new funding priority, Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation is partnering with Children’s Hospital of Michigan (CHM) to transform the MRI rooms at CHM main campus in Detroit into “Imagination Destinations.” The Imagination Destinations provide visually appealing, colorful graphics designed to distract young patients and redirect their attention from the test they are experiencing. The impacts of a project like this are numerous, from putting children at ease and making them less nervous, all the way to decreasing the need for the sedation of children undergoing MRI scans.
