Spacer for SENSE Flex coils

Application Tip
Teitsma, Loretta Philips Healthcare Philips Global
van den Heuvel, Martina Philips Healthcare Philips Global

Purpose

The Spacer is developed to help you meet the safety instructions for proper coil and cable positioning as communicated to you in the 'Instructions for Use' of your system, chapter 2 'Safety'. Make sure you read, understand and familiarize yourself with all safety instructions of this chapter.

 

A summary of the coil and cable safety guidelines is:

  • Avoid skin-to-skin contacts creating current loops.
  • Keep sufficient distance between RF coil cables and patient's skin. 
  • Keep RF cables straight - no loops.
  • Keep RF cables parallel to the main magnetic field.
  • Keep RF coil cables and ECG/VCG cable separated.
  • When combining RF coils, pay special attention to cable handling.

Applications of the SENSE Flex coil Spacer

For virtually all applications of the SENSE Flex coils it is recommended that the Spacer is attached to the coil cables between the interface-box and the coil elements. The small cushion can be attached to the interface-box whenever the interface-box cannot be positioned at the tabletop.

 

Some examples are added to illustrate the use of the SENSE Flex coil Spacer.
