MRI SUITE RELOCATION, THE CHRISTIE HOSPITAL

DAY designed for The Christie’s a new cutting edge MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) suite which provides patients with the latest in image-guided scanning technology. The suite houses three new scanners - two 1.5T (tesla) scanners and a powerful 3T scanner.

 

The new unit has been designed around the four seasons, with each one of the four scanner rooms signifying a different time of the year. Each room is equipped with a full-spectrum colour-changing LED lighting system which patients can control and which the designers believe helps to lower anxiety levels. As well the scanning rooms, the building also has counselling facilities, an interview room and a number of clinical and administrative areas.
