New Aromatherapy Technique

At Open MRI of Pueblo we have tested a new approach to help claustrophobic patients overcome anxiety with the scanner. MRIs can make some feel claustrophobic but using an open MRI and wearing aromatherapy induced gowns can give patients the feeling and smell of a calming environment, calming fears of claustrophobia and relieving anxiety.

We have been using aromatherapy gowns for a month and have already seen improvement in patient experiences. They come in an assortment of scents including lavender and vanilla, and have helped our most claustrophobic patients tremendously.
