Growth of veterinary MRI increases demand for shielding

Envirotect reports an increase in requirements for its radiation and RF shielding products due to the growth of diagnostic imaging services within the veterinary and equine industry.

Envirotect recently worked on a project at The Ralph Veterinary Referral Centre in Marlow, installing a copper RF shielded cage to house an MRI scanner. A specially controlled environment needed to be created to ensure the magnet functions as designed. Envirotect achieved this by forming an electrically sealed six-sided copper RF cage consisting of floor, ceiling, walls, control window and entrance door.

A code 7 (3.15mm lead equivalent) radiation shielded observation window was also required for the CT room. Craftsmen manufactured the lead-lined frame in their workshop before transporting to site for installation by the Envirotect team.
