"Siting" has become a more frequently used industry term as the complexity and impact of CT and MRI installations are fully recognized. Altima has been helping customers to start their projects with accurate information for years, from typical CT floor loading and radiation shielding and the various factors affecting radiation protection to more numerous and far more complex MRI requirements.


In addition to the usual physical requirements, with MRI it is essential to consider the effects of the surrounding structure on magnetic field uniformity and the effect of the magnet's fringe fields on other devices.        The RF signals from the MR installation affect equipment in adjacent facilities and devices worn by patients.


Other critical operational considerations include space, environmental, and power considerations, cooling systems, and proper positioning of equipment to optimize work flow and enhance the patient experience.



We want you to have an optimal imaging environment and the benefits that proper project planning and execution can bring while avoiding the issues that can arise when details are missed.
