SLEIC 5

Susan Lemieux, a research physicist at the imaging center, explains how SLEIC's mock scanner prepares human subjects for the scanning experience in the 3 Tesla MRI machine, the University's largest-diameter and newest MRI equipment. This rehearsal avoids data-collection delays and errors caused by anxious or oversized subjects. The mock scanner saves both time and money by giving subjects a chance to experience how the scanner will sound and feel, and also ask questions about their instructions ahead of time, before operating the expensive and heavily scheduled research equipment.
