Mechanical & Cosmetic MRI Coil Repair

Even when exercising the utmost care,  MRI coils can experience cosmetic wear and tear leading to mechanical issues. These issues can cause electrical malfunction, patient discomfort, and poor performance. At ScanMed, along with electronic MRI coil repair, we offer every type of mechanical repair to fix the housing and latches, positioning aids and straps, and cables and traps.    

MRI Coil Refurbishment

ScanMed's expert MRI coil repair technicians can also bring your coil back to original design specifications with our full service cosmetic MRI coil refurbishment program. With a straightforward, affordable up charge, we will fully restore your coil to "like new" condition. Our cosmetic MRI coil refurbishment program includes:

Finally, we will repair or replace any damaged cable casing and any cracks, chips, dents, or holes in the cable traps.
