The Medical Imaging Industry is reaping the benefits of a unique interior design component. Photographic ceiling treatments are transforming sterile medical environments into oasis’s of natural imagery and color.

Imagine lying on an exam table waiting to be scanned by a large piece of complex medical equipment that will essentially tell you what is or may be wrong with your body. In 2003 an estimated 122.5 million Americans experienced just that. With new and more sophisticated medical imaging equipment being offered all the time, a steadily growing number of doctors are incorporating imaging procedures into their patient diagnosis.

Over the course of recent years a company named Ceiling Scenes has been partnering with the medical imaging industry to make these procedures much more patient friendly. Ceiling Scenes specializes in the creation of photo ceiling treatments with unique and soothing natural images. Medical imaging facilities are now able to create a much more inviting atmosphere using printed acoustic ceiling tiles and acrylic light diffuser panels.

In addition to their aesthetic qualities, printed ceilings are providing companies with some very practical benefits. “They are almost like having a window. My patients have said things like, "very peaceful", "relaxing", and a couple of claustrophobic patients have stated that it really helped because it gave them something else to concentrate on,” recounts one hospital’s head of radiology. A representative of Southern Medical Group PA had this to say about their Ceiling Scene. “It gives the patients something to focus on other than the fact they are having the scan and possibly wondering what might be wrong, which can be very stressful. It is very relaxing and the patients can picture themselves there instead of where they really are.”

Ceiling Scenes have not only won the favor of medical imaging facilities, they have also been recognized by leading medical imaging equipment manufacturers. Warren Stoval of Toshiba American Medical Systems has begun to include Ceiling Scenes as part of his CAT scan package. "Ceiling Scene’s unique product has been installed in several of my CAT scan locations. This unique scan room addition compliments Toshiba American Medical Systems "Patient Focused Technology" theme. The Ceiling Scenes are ideal to assist in calming and relaxing patients prior to and during a CAT scan. The product makes the patient experience more comforting and special. My result of utilizing Ceiling Scenes is a consistent Toshiba theme, happy customers, and happy patients. I would strongly recommend this company and product for other medical applications." Relays Warren.

With installations all over the world, the imaging industry is not the first medical discipline to harness the value of Ceiling Scenes. Printed ceilings have been making their presence known in everything from dialysis units to pediatric hospital play rooms. Thanks to their cost effective pricing, these ceiling treatments are often within budget range of nearly any medical facility. Surveys and testing have indicated that patients of all ages and backgrounds are enjoying a more positive medical experience thanks to Ceiling Scenes.
