Certain medical equipment requires rapid and efficient cooling to help facilitate its function. In this respect, chillers for medical imaging equipment, or MRI chillers, play an important role in the medical field, particularly in diagnostics and imaging machines.
Scientific Systems has provided custom industrial chillers for medical imaging equipment since 1965. We will collaborate with you to design, build, and test a custom chiller for your medical imaging equipment needs. Contact us today for more information about our industrial MRI chillers.
How MRI Chillers Help with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI equipment uses an air-cooled or water-cooled MRI chiller to maintain the temperature of magnets, providing healthcare professionals with advanced imagery of the body. Without precise, effective temperature control, the heated magnets can cause the machine to produce distorted images, leading to inaccurate MRI results.

MRI Chillers for Computed Tomography (CT)
When an ultrasound or x-ray isn’t clear enough to provide practitioners with the necessary information, they often rely on a CT (often called CAT) scan to provide a sharper picture. CT scanners contain an x-ray tube that requires up to 30 minutes of cooling time between uses. Medical offices and hospitals don’t have the time to wait for the machines to cool down, and the delay between patients contributes to patient dissatisfaction and increased medical costs. Industrial-grade MRI chillers provide CT equipment with immediate cooling, so there’s no need to endure the cool-down period.
MRI Chillers for Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
PET scans are a revolutionary imaging form that provides three-dimensional images of organs and body functions. Because of their highly specialized nature, they generate a large amount of heat while in use. Like CT scanners, they have to be cooled down between patient use to operate correctly. MRI Chillers provide the quick, efficient cooling power PET scan machines need to minimize delays in imaging and streamline the patient care process.
MRI Chillers for Medical Linear Accelerators
In addition to medical imaging machines, MRI chillers are also used in linear accelerators, which provide radiation treatments to cancer patients. Like CT equipment, they use x-ray tubes, which produce heat and require rapid cooling for proper functioning and accurate results.
All of these machines rely on MRI chillers because of their ability to provide cyclical cooling; instead of steady and consistent chilling, chillers produce intense bursts of cooling power on a periodic, as-needed basis.
