CLINICAL BENEFITS OF THE MRI SIMULATOR
The interest of the Playful MRI for the child
The MRI examination is an anxiety for the child. The smooth changeover in the MRI is essential for achieving high quality images in order to make the correct diagnosis.
The immobility required for children 3-10 years is difficult to achieve without anesthesia or medical sedation.
All of the Pediatric Radiology departments in the 33 hospitals equipped worldwide confirm the clear 80% reduction in anesthesia after children have gone through the pediatric mri simulator.

As a result, more than 18,000 children avoided anesthesia or sedation and were able to pass an MRI exam successfully.
No medical preparation is therefore necessary and no supervision of the child due to possible
side effects is programmed hence the very significant benefit on the organization of services
related to medical imaging.
