Fiber optics sensors application in Medical Industries


High-accuracy fiber optic temperature sensing is required for variety of life sciences and patient monitoring applications. fSENZ provides single and multi-channel fiber temperature probes for MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance imaging), and RF (radio frequency) environments, as well as low-cost disposable temperature probes with quick response and remarkable accuracy.

Our state of art solution to Medical Industries

Several life sciences applications rely on fiber optic temperature sensors for high precision sensing in environments where standard thermometers and RTDs are ineffective. The current application of fiber optic sensors is patient monitoring in MRI, NMRI, and MRT environments where the use of metallic sensors is prohibited due to extremely high magnetic fields combined with pulsed RF energy. Fiber optic sensors from Fsenz are made of non-metallic materials, making them ideal for monitoring patient temperature and ensuring tissue absorption rates do not exceed damaging levels. Cryogenic cooling of superconducting electromagnets can also be monitored using fiber optic temperature sensors. RF physiological studies with animals, catheter sensors, and patient monitoring during electro-surgical procedures are some of the other uses for fiber optic temperature sensors.
