The Virtual Reality MRI Mock Scanner is a virtual exposure therapy experience for children who are about to undergo an MRI. The child simply puts on a virtual reality headset and is shown a CGI recreation of the MRI experience. The child is familiarized with a virtual radiology suite, is habituated to the sounds of the scanner, and is trained to stay still during an MRI to get quality images. Furthermore, using the native motion tracking sensors in virtual reality headsets, the VR MRI Mock Scanner can measure the child’s head movement and provide visual stimuli telling the participant when excessive motion has taken place.
