to get familiar with medical imaging to manage their anxiety
EchoSim is a software platform building an immersive solution for pediatric patients to get familiar with medical imaging. Through a game environment, the pediatric patient is trained and can practice each procedure step at home.
• Confined and unfamiliar spaces, machine noise, and the need to lie still lead to anxiety in children during medical imaging.
• Child anxiety can lead to unwanted motion which can ultimately result in motion artifact, or abandonment of the procedure.
• In pediatric MRI 50% of procedures fail due to patients fear of the procedure.
Through a game environment, the pediatric patient is trained and can practice each procedure step at home. The patient’s level of anxiety is measured through a standard wearable and their movements while playing the game. The platform also can correct images that are distorted by pediatric patient motion. Lastly, the medical imaging facility receives information about pediatric patients’ readiness and risk of failure
