Medical Facility EMC – A Unique Shielding Approach

Real estate limitations placed a Proton Therapy Center (PTC) near a Magnetic Resonant Imaging (MRI) facility creating a high risk of interference.  The PTC uses a 9T magnet that moves and an 11 kW RF transmitter operating at frequencies sensitive to the MRI operation.  The unique approach to providing isolation, developed by Washington Laboratories was documented and published by the Journal of Proton Therapy under the title of:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NATIONAL BROADBAND PLAN!
Blow out the candles, already! The recent auction of Advanced Wireless Spectrum raised $41 Big Ones (that’s $41E9) for the US Treasury. Now, spectrum is a little like real estate and as Will Rogers once said: “I had been putting what little money I had in Ocean Frontage [because] they wasn’t making any more…” If there were spectrum futures, I’d recommend placing a buy. AT&T, apparently, thinks the same way, having dropped nearly one-half of the record bids.

Part of this haymaking for the Feds is the result of the FCC’s “National Broadband Plan” or “The Ominbus Broadband Initiative.” In 2010 the FCC released a plan to increase the availability of spectrum for broadband deployment in the United States. Some of the initiatives have had an immediate impact. Others have languished or have been overtaken by events. What has happened since is that the Commission has made hundreds of MHz of spectrum available for all kinds of mobile, IoT and M2M uses. This has caused some difficulties for incumbent users and created opportunities for innovators.

This article will provide an update of how the plan is being implemented.
