Ambient Lighting creates a calming and relaxing atmosphere

To maintain its prestigious reputation, the clinic decided to buy a Panorama HFO MRI system. In addition, the clinic installed the Ambient Lighting solution to further enhance the patient-friendly experience offered by the wide open Panorama HFO.


In close cooperation with the clinic, Philips had directed preparatory discussions and provided architectural recommendations for the room. A local contractor smoothly installed the Ambient Lighting MR solution in just two days.


The clinic's staff reports that patients are enjoying the more relaxing atmosphere of the Philips Panorama MRI system with Ambient Lighting.

Ambient Lighting increases patient comfort

Under standard examination room lighting, patients may feel vulnerable, exposed and anxious. Installation of Ambient Lighting MR along the perimeter of the room, creates a more soothing and relaxing atmosphere. Walls are washed by warm inviting hues of red, green, yellow and blue, calming patients and providing a source of positive distraction. Furthermore, patients can actively participate in the creation of their personal scanning experience by choosing their favorite wall color before the procedure. Empowering patients in this way can greatly increase the patient's comfort, thereby resulting in an enhanced experience for patients and staff.

Putting people first

Ambient Lighting is an excellent example of what makes Philips Healthcare products so special. By focusing on the needs of patients and staff, and combining human insight and clinical and technical expertise, Philips Healthcare creates innovations that put people first in the entire care cycle.
