A Breakdown of the Differences Between Low Field and High Field MRI SystemsMRI systems depend on the power of their magnets to produce magnetic fields that are strong enough to capture high-quality diagnostic images. Because of their ability to generate such high-quality images, many hospitals invest in MRI systems. However, buying an MRI system can …
Helium: Will it Continue to Be Affordable As Use Increases?MRIs produce detailed images of a patient's body that allow doctors to make accurate diagnoses. These images are generated through the creation of a powerful magnetic field produced by superconducting magnets. A lot of energy is required to produce a large magnetic field, which can only …
MRI Quenching 101 and How You Can Avoid ItAs safe as MRI systems are considered to be (especially since, unlike other types of diagnostic imaging equipment, MRIs do not produce radiation), there are certain incidents that you should be aware of. For example, quenches. A quench will cause the entire MRI to shut down. Generally …
The Reason It Is Necessary to Let Your CT Scanner Warm Up Before You Use ItCT scanners are expensive pieces of equipment. Even repairing or replacing its components can be very costly, which is why you'll want to not only maintain your CT scanner properly but that you operate it according to OEM recommendations  in …
Mobile MRI Rental: Is it The Right Choice For Your Center?MRIs are extremely beneficial to hospitals and imaging centers that have them as they can greatly improve their diagnostic capabilities. However, an MRI system takes up a significant amount of space, requiring its own special room that can safely contain the magnetic field it produces. …
Ultra High Field MRI Systems Are Offering Amazing Medical InsightsThe quality of the images captured by an MRI depends on the strength of the magnetic field: the stronger the magnetic field the MRI system can produce, the higher quality the images will usually be. While typical MRI systems produce field strengths between 1.5T and 3T, …
