GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Illinois, October 6, 2009- Founded in 1937, Clinica Santa Maria in Santiago, Chile was the country’s first private health institution. By offering oncology, cardiology, maternity, endocrinology and urology services, the hospital has become a leading healthcare facility in the country. With the addition of a Philips 3T magnet in 2008, it also improved its MRI capabilities with better image acquisition time and spatial resolution.
When the MRI suite housing the Philips magnet began having issues with noise through the RF shielded door, ETS-Lindgren was contacted for its expert consultation and a solution. Since the shielding vendor used for the MRI room did not offer acoustic RF doors, ETS-Lindgren offered and installed the acoustic version its industry-leading Auto-Seal™ II door. This door builds upon ETS-Lindgren’s 30+ year history of providing innovative shielded doors for its MRI facilities by featuring a flat threshold, a classroom style handle that activates the RF seal, in- or out-swing functionality and a UL power supply. The acoustic version features an STC 40 rating. For more information, visit www.ets-lindgren.com/ASDII.
