The UVM MRI Center has an MRI simulator that is available to MRI Center users. The purpose of the simulator, is to expose research subjects to the MRI environment prior to the actual MRI scanning session. The MRI simulator is very realistic, it includes lights and sounds that are very similar to what they might experience during an actual scan session. The MRI simulator can be helpful to researchers who are concerned that certain subjects will experience anxiety or claustrophobia during the actual scan session.
The simulator is only available to researchers. Unfortunately, it is not available for clinical use. The simulator is located at Fletcher Allen Healthcare on Baird 7, in the GCRC. To schedule time, please contact Jenna Makarewicz at (802) 847-8248.
