On-Demand Webinar – Plan your next MRI project safely with the new V.A. Design Guide

The US Department of Veteran Affairs has just released a new Design Guide with tons of information on planning safe and efficient MRI facilities. Far beyond simple zones, this new resource gives specific recommendations on safety elements from quench pipes, to wave-guides; from equipment tether points, to medical gases, and, of course to ferromagnetic detection. Whether you’re in the middle of a new MRI project, or only just thinking about an equipment replacement that’s a few years away, this webinar will help you plan for both the ‘big picture’ safety goals as well as the specific elements that can improve your suite.

In this webinar, Metrasens consultant and one of the Design Guide’s main authors, Tobias Gilk, will take you through specific planning and design elements that can help make your MRI suites safer and more efficient.

The webinar concludes with a live Q&A session
