Adapter for Head Stabilization and Positioning in Medical Imaging Devices


Chris Yakacki and neurosurgeon Aviva Abosch along with a team of researchers have developed an adjustable adaptor that securely and comfortably prevents patient head movement during an MRI scan. By interfacing with the MRI table, the customizable adapter can be adjusted along the length of the table, along the vertical axis, and rotationally to optimize both patient comfort and data capture during the fitting procedure. Additional benefits to the adaptor include reductions in appointment time, saving hospital resources, integration with a variety of stereotactic head frames and tables due to modular design of the adaptor, and improved patient outcomes.
