Children's Hospital's Fantastic Pirate-Themed CT Scanner

The Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian recently installed a new CT scanner in their radiology testing room, but what separates the machine from others of its kind is that it is designed in the likeness of a pirate ship. Being that the facility is designated for medical testing on children, the hospital opted for a playful piece of equipment when it came time to replace their old medical apparatus.

The children's hospital worked with GE to both design and install the scanner in its complementing room. The lively, colorful center boasts a high-spirited aesthetic on the high seas fit for naturally imaginative children who are more likely eager to play than go to a hospital for medical imaging. Though there are no actual toys in the room for kids to play with, the design alone has already proven to be a hit with children, as Registered Nurse Naoki Hawkins quotes one child as saying, "Hurry up and get out so I can play." In fact, Dr. Carrie Ruzal-Shapiro shares, "Our more adult patients ages 17 to 21 ask for the pirate scanner, too."

The scanner's design soothes the patients' nerves, decreasing the uneasiness that goes along with visits to a hospital and having medical testing done. In addition to its youthful and lighthearted aesthetic appeal, the machine is actually built to be safer, delivering the lowest possible dose of radiation to keep from producing additional harm to patients.
