Medical equipment that is used in the MRI room, such as infusion pumps, contrast injectors, patient monitors, anesthesia machines may malfunction and potentially injure the patient if not kept outside of a specific magnetic field strength. In addition, some equipment can degrade the MR image quality because of electromagnetic interference if this equipment is brought too close to the magnet.
