New MRI Motion Detection System is the Next Level in MRI Scanner Automation

Over 4 years in development, Sound Imaging’s SAMM MD (Safety and Movement Monitoring with Motion Detection) system was designed to address a “wish list” of issues brought up by the MRI Staff at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. SAMM MD implements patented hardware and software that integrates with the MRI scanner to:

• Movement or motion by the patient is optionally paused during the MRI scanner to help increase patient safety, reduce repeat scans, and increase image quality
• Visually and audibly alert the patient and MRI Technologist about motion
• Remotely/locally alert and record anyone entering the MRI room, one of the most dangerous rooms in a hospital or imaging center, 24/7
• Optionally record the MRI patient during their entire MRI scan, as soon as they enter the MRI room
• Allow MRI Technologists to actually “see their patients” in real time with MRI compatible HD video display
• Fully integrate with MRI patient worklist so patient videos are time-stamped and searchable to help reduce potential legal exposure
• Record videos that can be used to help with Technologist training to reduce claustrophobia and increase patient safety

In 2015, Dr. Jalal B. Andre led a team of researchers to study the added costs of motion artifacts to a typical imaging center. In their study entitled, “Toward Quantifying the Prevalence, Severity, and Cost Associated With Patient Motion During Clinical MR Examinations,” the researchers found that nearly 20 percent of studied examinations needed rescans, which they said could cost an additional $115,000 per year per machine.
“The results of this study suggest that the goal of reducing motion artifacts, and the related image degradation, represents an opportunity to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and improve imaging services,” said Dr. Andre.
SAMM MD is a highly-innovative, custom patient motion detection system specifically designed to stop operational and maintenance overruns, improving image quality, and patient comfort and safety. It will improve your patient and technician experience during the MRI process. With this newly patented device, Sound Imaging is moving MRI into the 21st century and patients will never be more comfortable.
