Joint Capabilities Address RF, Magnetic and Radiation Shielding
CEDAR PARK, Texas / ATLANTA, Georgia, November 24, 2010 – ETS-Lindgren, a leader in the design and installation of Radio Frequency (RF) shielding for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facilities and West Physics Consulting, the premier provider of diagnostic medical and health physics consulting and testing services, announced their partnership on projects requiring any combination of RF, magnetic and x-ray shielding. With their collective expertise, the companies will now offer customers the optimal shielding solution for Computed Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and MRI facilities. This partnership is designed to result in the most cost effective shielding installation that is also in full compliance with relevant industry standards, including NCRP-147, state regulatory requirements, etc.
“West Physics Consulting has knowledgeable experts with the tools and experience to precisely determine how much shielding is required on a project,” said Ben Turner, Vice President, Global Business Development-Medical for ETS-Lindgren. “That means a project is never overly shielded or not shielded enough to comply with standards and ensure safety. We have the experience and resources to install the exact shielding required and make the necessary structural and architectural modifications. Together, this partnership offers a convenient, expert solution to a customer’s requirements,” he added.
Dave Jordan, Senior Medical Physicist with West Physics Consulting, noted, “We have worked with ETS-Lindgren for several years now on numerous projects. We appreciate the decades of experience they bring to every project as well as their commitment to quality.
