How Safe is Wearing a Metal During an MRI Scan?


Thursday, November 4, 2021 Session 1 Session 2
CET (GMT +1) 02:00 PM 07:00 PM
EDT (GMT -4) 09:00 AM 02:00 PM
Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is a powerful imaging technique to obtain detailed organs and tissues images throughout the body without the use of x-rays or the so-called ionizing radiation.  Unlike x-ray and CT scan, MRI produces no ionizing radiation; hence, there is no limit on the number of MRI scans a patient can have in a given year.  However, it has another big limitation.  It interacts with metals in two distinct ways.  The first is related to the external large static field which generates a magnetic force on ferromagnetic materials. The second interaction with the metals is caused by the varying RF waves used in the MRI machines.  

In this webinar, we will explain to you, in details, along with simulation examples, these two limitations. EMWorks’ popular electromagnetic packages, EMS and HFWorks will be used to simulate the two phenomena and visualize the results, all in SolidWorks.  At the end of the webinar, we will tell you how safe is wearing a metal during an MRI scan.
