Contrast medium pump for magnetic resonance tomography
The EmpowerMR by BYTEC is the new development of a contrast medium pump for magnetic resonance tomography which, contrary to previous pumps, is not operating electrically but rather hydraulically. The background for this concept is that magnetic resonance tomographs generate high-intensive magnetic fields and therefore require components made of antimagnetic material in their immediate work environment.
The EmpowerMR consists of the following three main components:
- injector head
- hydraulic control device
- control and input unit
Within 24 months, BYTEC had developed the device, achieved CE and FDA certification and begun production.
