MRI - The Lifesaving Technology

Stainless steel is widely used in the medical sector, forming part of a variety of items from disability aids to surgical instruments. A particularly important use of the metal is in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), one of the most techno­logi­cally-advanced medical imaging tools in existence.

There are around 25,000 MRI systems currently functioning around the world, Stainless steel is used partly for its resistance to corrosion that is desirable in medical environments and partly because its ductility is effective at the ultra-low temperatures of up to -269°C that are required. Its non-magnetic qualities also make it the perfect structural material for the consistent delivery of essential MRI technology.
