This placement is necessary as imaging vaults feature specialized shielding to contain any scatter radiation during equipment operation. In order to counteract the sealed quality of a CT environment, Chiba University Hospital opted for Sky Factory’s Luminous SkyCeilings.
The design framework that creates these research-verified illusory skies uses high definition, large format photographic Open Sky Compositions. These images of the sky use daylight-quality LEDs to generate a color temperature (6500K) that dovetails with what the human eye identifies as a clear midday or early afternoon.
The crisp blue skies, cloud formations and colorful buds from the overhanging branches create a recognizable pattern that engages focal and peripheral vision, effortlessly creating the palpable illusion of vertical depth in close proximity to the supine patient.
