Applications

Top

Our Technical Application Manager will be pleased to demonstrate our products and will follow up sales of our technical equipment with a customer training course within the UK.

If you require more information or wish to book a demonstration, please contact our sales office where one of our advisors will assist you.

Alternatively, you can speak to Ian Benton directly on 01633 881467

Servicing

Top

The quality of our products and services is guaranteed. We can also offer extended warranty packages on all MR products. Supported by our specialist team of service engineers with many years of experience in this field, a comprehensive range of service contracts are available within the UK for individual products and also multi-product contracts at competitive rates.

Please Note: The MRI Suite can be a hazardous environment. Ferromagnetic items can be attracted to the magnet isocentre with such force as to become dangerous projectiles and may cause serious injury. To ensure the safety of these products and to guarantee MR safety, only Wardray Premise trained personnel should undertake any maintenance work.

Terminology

Top
MR / MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is abbreviated to "MRI" or "MR". The terms are interchangeable.
MR Safe

As defined by the ASTM International (American Society for Testing and Materials) document, MR SAFE is applied to an item that poses no known hazards in all MR environments. MR SAFE items would include non-conducting, non-magnetic items such as a plastic Petri dish. The document further states that an item may be determined to be MR SAFE by providing a scientifically based rationale, rather than test data. Unlike the previous FDA’s description of MR SAFE, the new MR SAFE may only be applied if the item is 100% safe, without exception, regardless of field strength or any environmental or extenuating circumstances.

The universal icon to be used for all MR SAFE products is a green square with white capital letters “MR”, or, a white square with green border and green capital letters “MR”. Items marked with the green MR SAFE icon may be taken into, used, or placed anywhere within any MR environment without risk or potential harm.

MR Conditional

This is defined by the ASTM International as an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use. Conditions that may be used to define the specified MR environment include field strength, spatial gradient, RF fields, specific absorption rate(SAR) as well as the potential for additional conditions such as operational conditions for a device.

The MR CONDITIONAL label is used to alert the user that there are certain limitations to the usability of the item, or the testing that was performed. As an example, an item may have been tested for a 1.5 Tesla system, but not a 3 Tesla. Items bearing the MR CONDITIONAL icon should include additional information on the label, as to what the conditionality of use is, such as a gauss line restriction or SAR level limitation. The icon designated for MR CONDITIONAL marking is a yellow equilateral triangle with a black border and black capital letters “MR” inside.

MR Unsafe

As defined by the ASTM International this is any item that is a known threat or poses a hazard in all MR environments. An example of an MR UNSAFE item would be a pair of ferromagnetic scissors, or any other item constructed of ferrous metals.

The MR UNSAFE icon consists of a white circle with red border and diagonal strike through and the capital black letters “MR” inside.
