Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that attacks the central nervous system (brain, optic nerves and the spinal cord). Symptoms vary in severity. Worst case scenario, people can lose their eyesight and even become paralyzed, while more lenient cases result in having a numb feeling in the arms and legs. However, each person who suffers with MS can experience different symptoms.

RF Shielding

POSTED BY Rachel Masey ON Fri, Apr 4, 2014 @ 10:51 AM

RF (Radio Frequency) Shield_Noise Shielding plays a huge role in the MRI’s ability to provide quality images. It is a requirement for all MRI systems to be housed within a RF Shielded MRI scanning room. The RF Shield is used to keep RF noise from getting into the images.  Radio stations, electrical equipment and other radio frequency signals can all be responsible for potential image damage if they are not protected by the MRI exam rooms’ RF shielding. This particular shielding consists of layers of metal installed in the MRI exam rooms, covering all of the walls, ceilings and floors. The shielding must cover every window, door, even electrical circuits and other gaps that penetrate the room. One open seam, one small puncture or even a slight slice in a shield can cause image damage and poor shield performance. The metals most used to build these protective rooms are are copper, aluminum and galvanized steel. When it comes to price, most facilities will turn to galvanized steel before copper, since copper is well known for being more expensive.
