Neuro Device Camri ™

Neuro Device Camri is a recording camera designed for diagnostics and testing in MRI scanners. The use of the device increases the safety of the test subjects and the effectiveness of MR tests. It allows one to see the patient during MRI and fMRI tests and provides feedback on their activity. It also allows the patient to be observed by the investigator or, in the case of examination of children, by the parents.

Application

MRI diagnostic examinations. Neuro Device Camri is designed for all diagnostic examinations carried out in MRI scanners. It increases the safety and comfort of the subjects and minimizes the costs generated by the need to repeat unsuccessful tests.

fMRI examinations. Observation of hands, feet and other parts of the patient’s body allows controlling the correctness of the execution of commands (e.g. during the examination of fMRI paradigms).

Cardiac MR examinations. Thanks to Neuro Device Camri it is possible to observe the chest and thus control whether the patient’s respiratory rhythm is synchronized with the heart rhythm, which is very helpful in cardiological MR examinations.

MR examinations for people who do not speak, the hearing impaired or the deaf. Thanks to the possibility of observing the hands, during the examination it is possible to communicate with people who do not talk, the hearing impaired or the deaf.

Benefits and capabilities

Reduction of retesting. The scanner is a closed machine and the tester is located in another room. Without Neuro Device Camri it is not possible to see if the examined patient has open eyes and sees the displayed stimuli, or whether they execute commands and if they are executing them correctly.

Reduction of testing costs. Thanks to the camera, the number of failed tests and the need to repeat them is minimized. This saves money and time for patients and healthcare professionals alike.

Patient safety. Thanks to the camera, it is possible to check if the patient’s anxiety is not growing and to control their well-being, possible panic attacks, epilepsy attacks or fainting.

Sedation examinations. It is very helpful during examinations of adults and children in sedated state, allowing to control whether the patient has not started to wake up. 

Comfort and legal aspect when examining children. The use of the camera is particularly important for children. It meets the legal requirement for a parent to be able to see his or her child during the examination. It also increases the psychological comfort of parents, who can observe their child during the examination. It also helps to make the experience easier for small patients.
