A critically important subset of medical diagnostic equipment, imaging equipment provides information about organs and tissues, providing the medical staff with an incredibly rich set of data to support the diagnostics process.  Medical imaging equipment including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines can be extremely complex, bulky, and very power hungry. Designers must ensure that these important medical devices are extremely reliable and guarantee safety to both patients and staff as well as be extremely accurate in the detection and generation of electric signals used for image generation.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment are extremely complex systems where superconductive coils, which generate intense magnetic fields, and a highly accurate, high-power radio frequency system are used to excite the natural resonance frequency

Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging works by using a probe to directly apply sound waves – in the non-audible spectrum – to a patient’s skin and analyzing the different travel times and amplitudes generated by their echoes when encountering different tissues and orga

X-Ray and Computer Tomography

X-Ray and Computed Tomography (CT) medical imaging technology utilize absorption properties of different materials or tissues to create an image of a body's internal parts with CT generating 3D views by collating together a set of spatially and tempo
