The 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging system TCL MR5000 follows a usercentred design approach: the patient on the examination table is at the centre of several concentric circles housing all controls. This enables the medical personnel to always stay close to the patients, so as to communicate with them during the entire examination process. The colour of the two light strips on the outside of the gantry indicates the current operational status of the scanner.
Statement by the Jury
The unique design concept of the TCL MR5000, which is based on harmonious circles and lines, gives rise to a very soft and calming impression.
