MRI application

Medical Industries

High-accuracy fibre optic temperature sensing is required for a variety of life sciences and patient monitoring applications. fSENZ provides single and multi-channel fibre 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.

Challenges Faced By Our Customers

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 fibre 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 fibre optic temperature sensors. RF physiological studies with animals, catheter sensors, and patient monitoring during electrosurgical procedures are some of the other uses for fibre optic temperature sensors.

Our State Of Art Solution To Customers

High-accuracy fibre optic temperature sensors are available from fSENZ in a variety of sizes and materials, making them ideal for MRI and CT (X-ray computed tomography) research. For full compatibility in MRI and CT scanning rooms, fSENZ’s fibre optic probes are made of x-ray transparent materials and have non-magnetic connectors. Furthermore, quick-response, ultra small diameter fibre optic probes are available, which has been specially designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of demanding applications.
