The successful completion and implementation of a medical imaging project is one of the most complex design and construction projects to execute. Whether you are replacing existing equipment, renovating existing space for new equipment or building brand new space, these projects can be very difficult to manage. MRI leads the way as the most challenging of imaging projects - both technically and fiscally.
Planning your MRI project requires coordination from the very beginning. It is imperative that the equipment supplier, architect, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers, the Radio Frequency (RF) contractor and in many cases the landlord or property owner be working with the same objectives and expectations.
Hiring a reputable architect and contractor is an option, but there are very few companies or individuals who specialize in medical imaging projects. Some may have years of experience in general medical projects, but medical imaging requires more specific knowledge and skill. Specifications such as, how thick the lead needs to be for the MRI Scan Room or how much RF shielding is required are imperative to have an environmentally safe and patient-friendly MRI suite.
