Why You Need MRI Safe Products In Your Medical Facility

MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a medical imaging technique for producing images of internal organs and other soft tissues. An MRI is performed in radiology departments and requires special MRI safe equipment due to it’s strong magnetic field.

In clinical practices an MRI is used to differentiate pathologic tissue from normal soft tissue. The advantage of performing an MRI is that the process is safe for the patient, granted you’re following the appropriate safety protocol and using MRI safety equipment.

Because an MRI system uses a strong constant magnetic field, items must be MRI safe before entering the room. We’ve heard of many stories where products such as jewelry, belts, mop buckets, wheelchairs, etc. were brought into the MRI suite causing a strong magnetic pull of the objects. As you can imagine, this presents major danger factors for both patients, medical personnel and the possible damage towards the MRI machine.

Our line of MRI safe products includes a variety of products that are necessary for use in your MRI suite. For example, fire extinguishers are often a required product to have and our MR Tested Fire Extinguisher was designed for this purpose. This 5 lb. fire extinguisher is recommended to be used in and around MRI rooms, is effective for Class B flammable liquids and is electrically non-conductive. Our non magnetic lighting selection allows for the proper medical lighting in the MRI suite. The MRI Surgical Light – Dual Ceiling Mount is ideal for surgical and specialty procedures in MRI facilities. This light will be unaffected by the magnetism associated with MRI applications.

MRI safety is crucial for keeping patients and medical personnel safe during necessary MRI applications. To check out all our MRI products, be sure to visit our website for our full line. If you have any questions or comments please let us know below.
