The noise produced cannot be adjusted although there are increasing developments by scanner manufacturers which allow limited adjustment of noise, and in some cases this can be as low as a vacuum cleaner. This is dependent on what type of scanner is available at the location for your scan.
However, due to the nature of the noise levels experienced we do provide ear protection that must be used, and this will be explained and provided by our staff as part of your scan. Dependent on local scanning equipment this may be earplugs, ear defenders/headphones, or a combination of both. Please follow advice provided by our scanning teams, it is for your comfort and safety.
In some circumstances music can also be played over the ear protection to help provide some better background to the scan and help pass the time quicker.
