Excellent Entertainment During an Open MRI
Most people that visit our open MRI unit know that we have a 42” high definition TV to watch during the exam. We provide DirecTV service and have most of the popular cable channels available. What most people don’t realize is that we also have a DVD player that is hooked up to this TV. You can bring your own movie or TV show on DVD to watch during your exam.
Several Things to Consider Before Arriving
If your MRI is on your head or neck and you wear glasses to watch TV, you may consider that you will not be able to wear your glasses during your scan. For this reason, many people choose to bring in a music CD to listen to. Our DirecTV service does not allow us access to the music stations like most residential packages. So, if you are a music lover, we recommend that you bring your own music on CD so that we will be able to play it through the TV.
Open MRI Experience for Children
We have plenty of kid friendly stations for children! We also understand that some children have a favorite movie that can bring them comfort while keeping them still distracted. Feel free to bring in any movie on a DVD that makes your child feel the most secure for their open MRI exam. We are currently unable to play blu-ray discs, however, we could potentially upgrade if more people began to use this alternative.
At Open Upright MRI, we want your stand up mri experience to be that best it can be.
