MRI systems are a major contributor to a hospital’s revenue stream. Unfortunately, MRI machines are loud. Obviously this can create a problem for patients, staff and anyone in the surrounding space. Problems like:
- Verbal communication difficulties
- Heightened anxiety
- Temporary hearing loss
- And, in extreme cases, the potential for permanent hearing impairment
The issues are not just limited to patients and their MRI technicians. Noise reduction makes the environment pleasant for everyone – including visitors and staff who may be in adjacent areas such as reading rooms, offices, and meeting rooms. Proper MRI sound isolation increases valuable, usable real estate in your hospital.
It all starts in the planning phase. Architects play a major role in setting the MRI noise management strategy. Proper layout and the use of specific materials, combined with MRI shielding designs, can mean the difference between a peaceful or an annoying environment.
IMEDCO holds patents on proven techniques that combine layers of select materials in shield walls, floors and ceilings. In addition, our MRI isolation designs provide impressive noise reduction. We offer proven critical components like doors and windows to further reduce noise in areas adjacent to MRI systems. And you might be surprised by how affordable our MRI shielding packages can be.
Our experienced, knowledgeable consultants differentiate IMEDCO from other shielding companies. And we’ve got more than just thousands of installations to back us up – we offer the best warranties in the industry.
