Summary: Providing all sorts of MRI parts, accessories and more, Sound Imaging Inc has been in the industry since 1999. The company has now launched their latest, much anticipated motion detection system called the SAMM-MD.
(April 25, 2017) – Based in San Diego, California, Sound Imaging Inc is a premier provider of MRI equipment and services, such as repairs and MRI accessories. The company is proud to announce the launch of their latest product that will put an end to motion artifacts in MRI scans: the SAMM-MD (Safety and Motion Monitoring – Motion Detection). Motion artifacts are distortions created in an MRI scans when a patient moves.
Patient motion has been a problem in the MRI industry for decades. Re-scans do not only take a toll on the patient’s health but they also add to the operational and maintenance costs of MRI scanners. SAMM-MD is stated to be a highly innovative closed-camera system that is compatible with all modern MRI scanners. The system instantly detects any motion in the patient with its customizable movement threshold settings and allows for bi-directional communication. With help of SAMM-MD’s powerful software, technologists can pause the scan or restart it instantly.
President of Sound Imaging, Sunny Tabrizi, states, “Here at Sound Imaging Inc, we are a highly client oriented company and aim to provide the most innovative products in the MRI industry. Our latest product SAMM-MD is a simple module that will improve the patient experience and cut down costs of MRI scanners. Not only that but it will also help hospitals avoid misdiagnosis due to patient motion”.
A study titled “Toward Quantifying the Prevalence, Severity, and Cost associated with Patient Motion During Clinical MRI Examinations” and published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology estimated the extra cost per scanner due to re-scans.
“Significant motion artifacts were identified on sequences in 7.5% of outpatient and 29.4% of inpatient and/or emergency department MR examinations. The base-case cost estimate yielded a potential cost to the hospital of $592 per hour in lost revenue due to motion artifacts. Potential institutional average costs borne (revenue forgone) of approximately $115,000 per scanner per year may affect hospitals,” stated the study.
This study demonstrates that re-scans can not only financially burden imaging departments but also lower the quality of patient care. According to Sound Imaging Inc, SAMM-MD can improve these departments and make MRI scans more efficient and much safer for patients.
