Designing a magnetic shield is a critical part of the process of planning a successful MRI installation. Panamerican Shielding provides complete magnetic shield design services for all MRI systems using the industry standard software programs. The challenge of complete MRI shielding is that it must serve two opposing purposes: In addition to blocking out distorting radio frequencies, it must also contain the 5-gauss magnetic field within the controlled area. Here at Panamerican Shielding, our architects ensure to keep the magnetic field generated by the MRI from expanding into adjacent areas such as patient waiting rooms, spaces used for other modalities, and service areas used by staff. Because each site is unique, and the type of magnet varies, we work closely with clients and MRI manufacturers to confidently address every specific need.
When evaluating MRI shielding firms there are key areas of expertise you should look for.
Optimal MRI shielding design requires a clear understanding of existing or planned site conditions, user needs, and constructibility. It also requires experience that successfully addresses the physics of MRI equipment including radio-frequency interference, magnetic field containment, and acoustic noise impact. There is no replacement for the skills that only come with in-the-field experience: a track record of projects that maximize safety, functionality and the clinical environment that we possess and showcase each day at Panamerican Shielding.
