  • Causa
    The thickness and location of the shielding material must be installed according to the shielding requirements provided by philips. in cases where the requirements are not followed, the distance between the passive shielding rear wall and the magnet could be insufficient. an insufficient distance leads to stronger attraction forces between the magnet and the passive shielding. these stronger forces may lead to shearing of the magnet vibration pads. in a worst case scenario, it may result in displacement of the magnet. displacement of a magnet can result in image quality issues and mechanical fitting problems with the table. these functional issues affect the clinical usage of the mr system.


  • Modelo / Serial
    MR systems have a strong magnetic field around the magnet, the so called fringe field. Reduction of this fringe field (e.g. 0.5-mT area) can be required under certain circumstances. A reduction can be achieved with ferromagnetic plates mounted to the parent walls, under the construction floor and above the RF-ceiling. These plates are called passive shielding. Passive shielding calculations require dedicated Philips Healthcare software. As documented in the Planning Reference Documentation, these calculations must be performed by Philips. It provides the requirements for the thickness and the location of the shielding material which are to be implemented, preferably by Philips’ selected RF cage suppliers.
