SkyCeilings Aid in MRI Scans

Evan Jordan Jr

Getting an MRI used to be an uncomfortable experience, but patients are getting their exams under perfectly sunny skies and cherry blossoms at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah, at least that's what the ceiling makes them think.

Utah's newest healthcare facility uses SkyCeilings to replicate the temperature, light and color of a sunny day. The SkyCeilings, a creation of The Sky Factory, are made up of multiple high-resolution photographic images of the sky or other nature scenes that are lit from behind by T-5 fluorescent or LED lighting. Such light emulates the temperature of natural daylight and is read by the brain as natural. The panels can also be installed on walls to create virtual windows.
