RF-induced heating (ASTM F2182)

MRI Safety

RF-induced heating (ASTM F2182) is important to measure for the safety of patients. We can determine if your passive implant will be safe for a patient in a clinical MR environment with a static magnetic field of 1.5 T or 3.0 T. We measure the radiofrequency-induced heating of the medical device and its surroundings in the magnetic resonance environment according to ASTM F2182. Testing for temperature rise occurs in a location within the MR bore where the exposure conditions are well characterized and can be scaled by assessing the specific absorption rate.
