3D Animation and MRI Safety

3Dwalkthroughs.com picked up and interesting story on prweb.com about the use of 3D animation to improve Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) quality and safety. According to the press release this week is MRI Safety Week, and commemorates a tragic accident in which a child was killed by a projectile in the MRI scanner in 2001.

Imagilys, a Belgian company specializing in neuroimaging, along with Dominique Fremond, a French computer graphist, have created a 3D animation movie that explains the basic MRI safety rules and, more generally, what to expect from an MRI examination.

As someone that has undergone an MRI and almost started thrashing on the table like a fish out of water (almost), the 3D animation is certainly beneficial. The 3D animation follows a virtual patient from arrival to departure and effectively prepares a patient for what they can expect during the actual MRI.

    What isn’t in this sequence are the animations that were done of projectile / missile accidents (like the one which killed the young boy and was the inspiration for MRI-Safety Week). They had one built which showed the MRI’s magnetic field ‘sucking in’ a pair of scissors.
