August 7, 2016 Result of EMAREI Tool Tests:
Titanium and Beryllium Copper Tools Test of EMAREI titanium tools
conducted on August 7, 2016 at
University of Southern California Hospital, Los Angeles, CA
with a 3-Tesla MR system (General Electric Healthcare, Milwaukee, WI)
Non-clinical testing demonstrated that the DOUBLE OPEN-END WRENCH, 30/32-mm, Titanium and Beryllium Copper is MR Conditional and can be used in the MRI environment according to the following conditions:
IMPORTANT NOTE: This product is intended for use inside of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) environment (e.g., in the MR system room). However, it is not intended for use directly inside of the MR system (e.g., inside of the bore of the scanner), during the operation of the scanner (i.e., during an MRI procedure). As such, the assessment of MRI issues for this product entailed an assessment of translational attraction in relation to exposure to a 3-Tesla MR system, only.
NOTE: The above information applies to all tools made from the same material that are smaller in size/dimensions.
June 30, 2016 Result of EMAREI Flashlight Test:
Low-Magnetic EMAREI Flashlight incl. 3 low-magnetic batteries
conducted on June 14, 2016 in CHRU Nancy Hôpital Central, France
with a GE Healthcare, Discovery MR750w 3.0T
A low-Magnetic Flashlight EAI0144 consisting of body parts and low magnetic batteries, is considered as “MR Conditional” in accordance with the definition of the ASTM F2503-13 standard. The results of in vitro tests have demonstrated that the Flashlight does not present any danger in the following examination conditions:
PRECAUTIONS OF USE
The respect of MR conditions guarantee security of the use of Low-Magnetic Flashlight EAI0144 in MR environment. Caution, near the tunnel entrance the users can feel some forces which disturb the manipulation of the Flashlight. For an optimal use EMAREI recommend not to approach the Flashlight over one meter the tunnel entrance.
MRI TESTING METHOD:
The assessment of the torque induced by a magnetic field has been conducted in accordance with ASTM F2213 standard. It was showed that the torque induced by a magnetic field of 3-Tesla or less does not present any risks.
The tests conducted in accordance with ASTM F2052 standard showed that the displacement force induced by a spatial gradient of the static magnetic field limited to 5.26 T/m did not present any risks.
