CEDAR PARK, Texas, November 17, 2022 – ETS-Lindgren will showcase innovative RF Shielding Products and Services for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) applications at the 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Held from November 27 to December 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago, this year's "Empowering Patients and Partners in Care" program features more than 2,000 presenters and more than 300 live educational courses for radiology professionals. As the world's largest medical imaging conference, RSNA 2022 also provides an extensive technical exhibition for demonstrating the latest MRI and related technologies. "We look forward to exhibiting at RSNA," said Tara Kellogg, ETS-Lindgren's Director of Business Development for Healthcare, Industry, and Government. "ETS-Lindgren has had a booth at RSNA each year since the 1990s, as the event provides a great forum for radiologists and industry to discuss the latest advances in medical imaging technologies."
During the technical exhibition held from November 27 to 30, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm CST each day, visitors to ETS-Lindgren's Exhibit Booth 3147 will see examples of the latest RF Shielding Solutions for facilities that house one of medicine's most powerful diagnostic tools – MRI scanners. "For decades we have worked with the medical imaging community to provide products and services to support not only the MRI scanner, but also the imaging staff and their patients," said Ms. Kellogg. "These powerful magnetic scanners require superior RF shielding to ensure they achieve peak performance and provide high-quality images for radiologists and their patients. At RSNA, we appreciate the opportunity to discuss state-of-art products and services with imaging professionals." ETS-Lindgren's innovative products on display at RSNA 2022 include the EVO™ Series of MRI RF Shielded Doors; the TechGate™ MRI Entryway System and MRI Patient Scanner to address patient safety; as well as novel accessories such as a Magnetic Active Compensation System, ClearShield™ S-Glass, and Med-Vizion ZXR LED Down Lighting.
For industry-leading MRI door technology, the EVO Series of MRI RF Shielded Doors are designed to provide reliable, low-maintenance service for use in rigorous MRI environments. To facilitate access into and out of the MRI suite, this manual door is equipped with an easy-open, lever-style handle with minimal force required for operation. Customers who are frustrated from trying to open and close their cumbersome MRI doors are relieved by the low-friction, aesthetically pleasing EVO door. With its low-profile, ADA-compliant threshold, the door facilitates effortless patient gurney transfers and easy cleaning, especially useful for surgical applications. But perhaps the most important feature of the EVO door is its acoustic performance, with Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating choices of 28, 34, 40, and 44 (49 dB of sound reduction at frequencies of concern). These ratings ensure a quieter, calmer environment near the MRI suite for staff and patients. Visitors to ETS-Lindgren's booth can interact with a model of the door to experience its ease of operation and exceptional modern design.
