IMEDCO America is honored to be a part of the world’s 1st 10.5-Tesla human MR scan that was performed at the University of Minnesota. The magnetic shield totaling 1.3 million pounds of special steel that incased the MRI machine was created by IMEDCO. The magnetic shield included 170 steel plates and walls varying from 4 layers to 14 layers thick (28″). IMEDCO also constructed the RF shield for this project which has 150 panels (not including the floor) and has testing frequencies from 10MHz to 450MHz. Continue Reading
Planning for your new MRI may seem daunting, but we can help with the heavy lifting. Construction, installation, operation, and safety are all critical components for optimal MRI shielding. Structural considerations, magnetic field impact and acoustic noise are just a few factors evaluated during the Site Planning process.
