Need an MRI or CT NOW?  You can schedule an appointment with a toll free call to 1-888.MRI.4.NOW or online. Plus, patients with anxiety or claustrophobia will rest easier when having an MRI performed at Premier MRI/CT, the only imaging Center in metro Detroit to offer this comfort. In addition, CinemaVision Goggle System* offers you the option to bring your own movie, watch cable TV, plug in your iPod or choose from our DVD libraryview a movie or television program or listen to music during your procedure, eliminating noise and a confining view that can be stressful.

Jeff Pearson, technician, Premier MRI/CT, says, “Watching a movie through the lightweight, comfortable goggles allows our patients to take their mind off of the procedure, and the headphones help drown out the noises of the machine.” No need to be anxious about your next MRI. Being comfortable and relaxed will produce a more successful scan.

Alleviating nervousness means many patients don’t need sedation, and reduced restlessness results in more precise, higher quality scans.  In fact, children who frequently require sedation can now have a sedation-free MRI when using CinemaVision goggles. The system allows two-way communication between the patient and technician, and the patient can see and hear the tech each time a new phase of the scan is performed.

According to patient Debra Davis-Brame of Roseville, it was comforting to know the imaging technician was in constant touch during her scan. “Whenever the MRI tech was going to be doing something new, she would paus e the video and let me know. Not only could I hear her, but I could see her through the goggles, as well,” she said.

Many patients report the goggles help them feel far more comfortable and relaxed than they expected. “I have always felt anxious whenever I’ve had an MRI,” added Davis-Brame. “With the CinemaVision goggles, I had such a wonderful experience that I almost fell asleep.”

Premier MRI/CT is the only non-hospital imaging facility to offer CinemaVision goggles to its patients. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 1-888.MRI.4.NOW (888.674.4669) or schedule an appointment by through the Make an Appointment tab above.
