“The Virgo MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) System was one of the first MRIs to feature a styling cues and colours traditionally used in consumer products. This was done to make the product feel more familiar to patients who were often intimidated by the large white boxes that dominated the MRI market at the time. This practice is now common throughout the medical device industry.”
