University Of Chicago DCAM Building MRI

This 3T MRI is in DCAM at the University of Chicago Medical Center. This MRI required both RF Shielding and magnetic shielding, continuous throughout. While RF shields are usually nonferrous, magnetic shields are ferrous, usually mild steel laminated outside of the rf shield to protect people or electronics from the 5 Gauss field. The cryogen is kept cold using a Filtrene glycol dedicated chiller in the equipment room directly underneath the MRI room. During Construction a large HEPA fan creates negative pressure inside the room to avoid anything from escaping into the active hospital. A pressure detector logs this pressure continuously. Fortunately in this location no crane was required because it was a ground-level site. Union riggers use a forklift and skates to deliver to the site.
