Remote Control MRI Scans

Remote-control software has been developed by scientists from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and Siemens Medical Solutions //that facilitates execution of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan using the internet by an off-site imaging expert.

According to the researchers, the remote scans were better in quality than the onsite scans performed by a less skilled person. This technology would benefit areas with inadequate staff members and expertise.

Dr. J. Paul Finn, chief of diagnostic cardiovascular imaging and professor of radiological sciences at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA said, "Some patients require specialized scans that not all technologists are familiar with, so we set up a software program that enables us to run the MRI machine from a remote location. A more skilled technologist can log on from a personal computer and perform the exam via remote control."

Finn performed scan of 30 adults and children at the UCLA Medical Center from his office that is situated around half a mile away, in a demonstration.
