While hidden beneath the seams of the MRI suite, choosing your MRI Shielding material and vendor is one of the most important – and often overlooked – decisions to make when designing an MRI suite. Not only is RF Shielding essential to the function of your MRI equipment – but deficiencies in RF Shielding can cost valuable time, revenue and add costs, with scanning down time and testing and repair costs.
Given the importance of MRI Shielding, what factors should you consider when choosing a Shielding vendor? An important place to start is the type of Shielding and installation. Panel MRI Shielding is one often-used type that involves fastening panels together to shield the suite. However, as you might imagine, this leaves your suite vulnerable to leaks at the panel joints, to corrosion and added costs for suite changes. In contrast, our NiCuFlex nickel-copper MRI Shielding fabric eliminates the risk of leaks, oxidation and corrosion, easily accommodates last-minute design changes, saves time and costs – and more below.
We hope you found this post helpful. Here, learn why it’s important to involve your shielding vendor early on in the design process and more from our MRI RF Shielding Manager Matt Boesel.
