MAGNETIC SHIELD DESIGN SERVICES
Designing a magnetic shield is a critical part of the process of planning a successful MRI installation. Pacemakers are susceptible to the magnetic field and therefore the FDA recommends containment of the 5 gauss field from public access.
In addition, other equipment may be sensitive to the magnetic field generated by the MRI magnet and this must also be taken into consideration by site planners and architects when designing an MRI imaging center.
National MRI Shielding provides complete magnetic shield design services for all MRI systems using the same software program that the OEM uses to design their magnets. Our company also provides the specialized steel needed when building MRI magnetic shielding. In addition, our teams of MRI shield installers are ready and able to install your magnetic shield anywhere in the world.
