MRI Scanning offers a new way of looking at the human body. When MRIs were first available, we were able to detect illness before it spread. MRIs were used only when one was sick and needed medical treatment. However, MRI machines can offer much more than telling someone if they are sick or not.
Today, we can use MRI Scanning for research, and discover new information. With new information from these studies, we can better understand the human body, and perhaps improve life outside of the the hospital. One such study took place at the Medical Center of the University of Freiburg in Germany. Researcher used MRI machines to better understand speech.
Scientists used ma
gnetic resonance imaging to find out if articulation is dependent on loudness. They discovered that for the vowel /a/, loudness does have an effect on articulation during singing. In other words, they are using scientific methodology to help singers improve their performances.
At Accessories for MRI, we advocate research and the many ways MRI machines can be used to improve the quality of life. We offer a wide inventory in MRI Transport, MRI Pediatrics, and MRI Patient Comfort to improve MRI machines in either your medical or research work. One of our goals is to improve the quality of the MRI Suite, so take a look at our inventory to see what we can offer you.
