Supportive Surroundings

At the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, the environment itself — not just the care and services provided there — helps support our patients and aid the healing process.



Patient-Friendly Imaging Suites

MRIs and other imaging tests can require having to lie perfectly still inside a giant, noisy machine for up to an hour. To make the experience more patient-friendly, we’ve traded stark walls and machinery for suites that mimic a ride on a cable car, for instance, or a hike through Muir Woods, using projected images and surround sound. Patients will also have the choice to use special MRI goggles to watch a favorite movie during their MRI.
