GE Silent Scan turns down the volume on MRI scanners

GE Silent Scan turns down the volume on MRI scanners | Hawaii Travel | Scoop.it

GE Healthcare has introduced a new data acquisition technology designed to improve patient comfort by largely eliminating the horrible noise generated during an MRI scan. Conventional MRI scanners can generate noise levels in excess of 110 dBA (creating a din that sounds like a cross between a vehicle's reverse warning horn and a Star Trek phaser) but GE says its new Silent Scan MRI technology can reduce this to just above background noise levels in the exam room.

The noise that MRI scanners produce is related to changes in the magnetic field that allow the slice by slice body scan to be carried out. In recent years, industry efforts to speed up the scanning process have also resulted in louder and louder scans. The designers have attempted to dampen these noises with mufflers and baffles, achieving only limited success.

People shouldn't believe everything they read.  This guidebook is doing a disservice to Hawaii.  State and county officials are posting more signs warning visitors of dangerous beach conditions.  Aloha, Russ.

Menehune, Kane-hoa-lani, Lalo-kona, Pua-Nawao, Ku-ma-menehune, Ku-hooia, Ku-iiki | Hawaii Travel | Scoop.it

Tales of little people have been recorded throughout the ages in every culture, in every country around the globe. One race of them is the mysterious Menehune of Hawaii...

 

Reports of a little race called the Menehune (pronounced men-ah-hoonie) can be traced back in the Hawaiian records many hundreds of years.

 

The Mnehune are said to be a people, sometimes described as dwarfs in size, who live in the deep forests and hidden valleys of the Hawaiian Islands, far from the eyes of normal humans.

 

Their favorite food is the maiʻa (banana), but they also like fish...

 

Although the origins of these diminutive Polynesian folk have been a matter of considerable debate within Hawaiian researcher's circles, most agree that one of the following three versions is the most likely:

 

The Kauai Menehune Version

 

The Oahu Menehune Version

 

The Forced Migration of the Menehune

 

If you travel to Hawaii in the future - especially the garden island of Kauai - you might seek out the former "hobbit" habitats of the fabled Menehune.

 

The ancient walls and trails that still remain could be markers from the mists, signposts along meandering pathways that lead back to a once great civilization inhabiting a lost continent that sunk to a watery grave eons before our recorded history began...

 

The little ones are fond of dancing, and singing, and of sports, such as shooting arrows.

 

Sometimes they use magic arrows, to pierce the heart of angry persons, and make them feel love instead.

It's interesting that Airedale mixes are common on the island because they are used to hunt feral hogs.
