Patient anxiety could be a risk factor for adverse reaction to contrast agents. We hypothesized that a patient-friendly audiovisual system in the MR scanner room had a relaxing effect on patients and the occurrence of adverse reactions. As a result, the patient-friendly audiovisual system compared to the standard system reduced contrast agents reaction. Thus, this system may reduce adverse reaction in patients by providing a more patient-centered MRI examination environment.
