RF Testing Procedures image

RF Testing Procedures

CERTIFICATION PROCESS

MRI equipment utilizes a strong magnetic field to generate images. To obtain the optimal performance the equipment needs minimal RF noise in the surrounding environment. The RF noise is frequencies of radio and magnetic waves which are measured in Decibel (dB) units. The critical frequency range for most MRI equipment is from 50 MHz to 150 MHz. To determine the Shielding Effectiveness (SE) a series of test are performed at different locations throughout the enclosure. These tests utilize specialized equipment to transmit and receive RF noise at a specified frequency in accordance to set of standards specified by the equipment vendor. To simplify the explanation of this process we will omit the technical details and focus on the general ideas behind the testing procedure. The test starts by placing a Transmit Antenna (TX) outside the enclosure that transmits a specified amount of RF noise (dB) at a specific frequency. Then the technician takes the Receive Antenna (RX) inside the enclosure and closes the door. The Shielding Effectiveness (SE) is then determined by the difference in dB once the door is closed. This difference in value is typically referred to as the shielding attenuation.

Cryogen Vent Systems image

Cryogen Vent Systems

Cryogen vent systems are an essential part to a MRI's functionality. MRI machines use liquid helium to cool down the superconductive magnet's coil. As cryogens are released to keep the magnet cool, they evaporate into odorless, colorless, and tasteless gases and must be vented safely out of the building with the use of a cryogen vent pipe.



We specialize in the supply and installation of these pipe systems. We are familiar with the different specifications of each magnet and can assist in the design calculations before the system is installed.

MarShield Shielding Solutions to Reduce Long Term Exposure to X-ray Radiation image

MarShield Shielding Solutions to Reduce Long Term Exposure to X-ray Radiation - May 7, 2020

An X-ray is produced by energy released from an accelerating electron and resulting radiation can pass through some, but not all material. The x-ray radiation then interacts with a detector and forms an image of the inside of an object or person. Because of the ability to “look through” materials that the human eye cannot see through, x-rays are used in a variety of industries including dental, non-destructive testing (NDT) and most importantly, the medical industry. While x-rays are a valuable diagnostic non-invasive tool with minimal risk to the patient, repeated long term exposure to x-rays can be harmful. Construction of hospitals and dental offices take steps to include radiation shielding that will reduce long term exposure from x-rays.

Lead Alternatives: Innovating the Radiation Shielding Industry - December 19, 2019

An area where material science is advancing the field of radiation shielding is in the development of non-lead shielding materials. Lead is used today because it's cost-effective, easy to work with, and most importantly has the ability to reduce gamma radiation.


One drawback of lead is that it is a toxic substance if ingested into the body. Given the toxicity, innovations are being made to produce thinner, more flexible and effective non-lead shielding solutions. Specifically, polymers are being utilized for their material properties. They are infused with tungsten and other metals to produce a new generation of shielding products.

RF Waves and Shielding for MRI Applications image

RF Waves and Shielding for MRI Applications - October 1, 2019

Previous posts that I have written have mostly dealt with shielding gamma and neutron radiation,however there are other forms of radiation that should be shielded in certain situation. Radio Frequency (RF) waves are a form of electromagnetic waves produced by electronic devices and networks such as cell phones or radio towers. These waves can cause interference with other sensitive electronic devices. RF and electromagnetic waves can be shielded by enclosing an area with conductive material and electronically grounding the shield. This is also commonly known as a Faraday Cage. The effectiveness of the shield will depend on the material used, thickness of the material, and what frequency the waves that need to shield are.
