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
Your site is officially planned, now you just need to get your shielding vendor to collaborate with the architect and contractor.

Insuring that the MRI machine and the room that encases it are comfortable for the patient and the Technologist is critical to the return on investment.
When you understand features and options, you can make the best decision for your operation.
