It’s one of the subjects that GE’s Bob Schwartz, General Manager of Global Design, is discussing at this morning’s “Health by Design” panel being held at GE’s healthymagination technology showcase in New York. In the audio slide show below, Bob explains how a pilot program now underway helps the fear drift away through jungle, pirate and undersea adventures that come alive right in the imaging room.
