MRI Safety MRI Safety and Compatibility

Test laboratory

The test laboratory of MR:comp tests medical devices, medical implants and instruments with regard to the numerous interactions in MR and corresponding MRI safety and MR compatibility. Further, we conduct tests of radiopacity, B0 homogeneity, lumenvisibility, MR image quality and manufacturer MR certificate testing.
Using standardized testing methods (e.g. ASTM, ISO and IEC standards) we evaluate devices, materials and procedures used for MRI/MRA applications using state-of-the-art test equipment in our laboratory and at clinical MR sites. In addition, comprehensive consulting services are offered for product improvements, new product development and personnel training.


Please note: Although "MR Safety" is the correct technical term, the term "MRI safety" is also used in this text to reflect the colloquial use.
