I am a graduate student at the University of Toronto currently conducting research to evaluate new MRI technologies, specifically the recent ‘Silent’ MRI devices and the potential for their uptake in Canadian hospitals and clinics.
So far I have seen the most value in the pediatric population, as children tend to be most disturbed by the loud noise of the scans. I have created a quick anonymous questionnaire (10 questions) in hopes of generally understanding a child's MRI experience and the parents' opinions on the benefits of quiet MRIs.
Your insights would be extremely helpful and would provide many clarifications about patient values that I have not been able to sufficiently address using literature. I greatly appreciate your time and help.
