First published Thursday, October 13, 2022
The University awarded a contract for MRI equipment service.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate repairs were needed to prevent further loss or damage to University property.
Service is needed from GE, to make the MRI equipment operable. The magnetic nitrous oxide tank was accidentally brought into the magnet room on anesthesia equipment. During patient set up, the tank dislodged from the anesthesia cart, created a missile effect and ricocheted into the magnet bore. Extensive damage to the MRI equipment. MRI needs to be ramped down to remove the tank safely. Current estimated downtime is three to four days for repair.
