MRI Quench Recovery
A “quench” refers to the emergency shutdown of a magnet – one of the extreme “what-ifs” when dealing with this type of diagnostic imaging system. During a quench, the cryogen gases evaporate quickly, causing a loss of superconductivity in the magnet. It may happen due to an MRI magnet malfunction or damage, extreme vibrations, shim disturbances, or a variety of other reasons.
If you look at the history and standard practices, one may believe that once a quench happens, it’s game over for the equipment, necessitating a complete system upgrade. But at Altima, we’ve helped many customers with “quench recovery.” Our expert engineers can save your magnet, and probably your biggest investment.
