High-quality MRI images require a strong and extremely homogeneous magnetic field in the target area. MRI manufacturers measure the magnetic field and correct it, using special coils and/or small pieces of iron, in a process called shimming. We have designed our teslameters systems to support all phases of your product cycle.
The development of a new MRI magnet requires a rapid and reliable magnetic measurement system to verify and perfect the magnet model. Our standard product line covers most of your needs in this area. In addition, we develop custom and semi-custom solutions – for example, an adaptation to a new field strength or geometry, or for the passage from a reduced-scale to a full-sized model.
High precision magnetic measurements in a factory environment represent a tremendous challenge, as even the distant passing of large iron objects such as an overhead crane or a fork-lift cause major field distortions. Only rapid, precise and reliable measurements allow technicians to recognize and avoid such spurious effects.
Installing an MRI system is a complex operation that occupies two technicians for days. After site preparation, the first step is to install the magnet and to shim it to compensate for disturbances in the magnet itself as well those specific to the environment.
