The Aspect Imaging MRI system has virtually no external fringe field meaning that metal objects can be in the approximate proximity of the system.
With conventional MRI systems, magnetic and electromagnetic devices must be kept at a safe distance from the magnet or even outside the shielded room altogether. In contrast, Aspect Imaging Compact High-Performance MRI Systems can be placed in almost any location, in both pre-clinical and clinical settings. The absence of an active magnetic field outside the device means that there is no risk whatsoever to operators or electronic devices.
Safe to install. Safe to operate. Safe for patients.
** CAUTION: Metal objects cannot be placed or inserted directly inside Aspect Imaging magnets.
Even though the magnet has virtually no external fringe field, the Aspect system is still a powerful
magnet and placing metal objects inside the bore can create irreparable damage to the system.
