MRI-Safe®

The industry's pioneering manufacturer of MRI-Safe® equipment, apparatus, and accessories.

Innovative Magnetic Resonance (MR) Solutions.

How to recognize MRI-Safe® equipment in this website

Many of AADCO's products have MRI-Safe® variations. We will often use the MR symbols throughout the website.
MRI-Safe® obviously is absolutely MR safe in normal usage.
MR in a green box designates MRI-Safe® products.
MR in a yellow triangle designates conditional MRI-Safe®, sometimes specifically as well (such as "to 3 Tesla").
MR in a red cross out circle designates products that are MR Unsafe.
All MRI-Safe® Products have been individually tested for magnetic properties. MRI -Safe® products are only designated as such after the type of scrupulous testing that provides you with the level of safety confidence you need.


How AADCO entered into the MRI-Safe® equipment manufacturing world.
In 2004, AADCO was called upon to provide MRI-Safe® Equipment Suspension Systems for an Experimental Image Guided Therapy MRI-Lab at MGH Massachusetts General Hospital. Other providers had promised to supply this equipment but failed. AADCO worked with the MGH team based on the requirements of two GE Physicists to successfully design the first MRI-Safe® Prototype Equipments Suspension System for that lab. Meeting their requirements our MRI-Safe® Units were successfully installed and utilized.

This project led to the development of AADCO’s MRI-Safe® Equipment Suspension Systems of today, with many installations in the USA and Europe, notably 4 labs at NYU Medical Center and 2 at Mayo Clinic facilities.

ASTM Compliant Equipment Labels

Our permanent Self-Adhesive Labels will meet your labeling needs for ASTM compliance in labeling your equipment and accessories.


All packs contain Square MR SAFE, Triangular MR CONDITIONAL, and Circular MR UNSAFE. (Except for the Custom order of any 30 labels.)

AADCO custom designs MRI-Safe® environments

Contact us to help design an MRI-Safe® environment for your location. We have trained contractors to install it wherever you are in the contiguous United States.


Built specifically for MRI use, our Ceiling Mounted Counter-Poised MRI-Safe® Equipment Suspension provides outstanding versatility of use in MRI Labs for a large number of MRI equipment applications. When strategically placed, they allow for equipment to be located in a wide variety of positions. Manufactured entirely of Non-Ferrous Materials, our MRI-Safe® Overhead Systems are non-magnetic to 3 Tesla. In addition to providing a near ideal mounting platform for MRI Injectors, our Equipment Suspensions are versatile and can be used to mount a wide variety of other MRI Lab devices.

MRI-Safe® Retrofit Pole Mount

Manufactured entirely of Non-Ferrous materials, our MRI Counter-Poised Stand is non-magnetic to 3 Tesla.


A device built specifically for MRI & CT Gantry use, our Pole Mounted Counter-Poised Equipment Suspension provides outstanding reach and versatility of use in MRI & CT Labs.
Simplicity of installation allows this device to be installed without interference with, or penetration of, the Faraday RF Shield in MR Labs. Cementing a small piece of plywood to that shield above the drop ceiling provides minimal required support, with most weight being transferred to the floor.

Hercules® Overhead Suspension Systems

The only MRI-Safe® Equipment Suspensions available anywhere.


AADCO Medical’s Hercules Suspension Systems are the new standard in quality, durability and flexibility. Our Overhead Suspension Systems meet the needs and rigors of all of today’s Diagnostic & Interventional Lab Environments, including MRI-Safe® systems specially designed to operate safely in MRI environments tested to 3 Tesla.


Hercules Systems are precision machined, high strength, aircraft grade aluminum alloy that is stronger than steel of equal weight. There are no cold welds, cheaply stamped parts or weak points to fail, in our UL validated and certified Hercules systems.

Hercules® Optional Equipment

Injector Mounts, ErgoLite® LED Examination & Procedure Lamps, and more for Hercules® Suspension Systems.


These mounts are engineered to be ultra-lightweight, so that Single and Dual Mount Models may be hung on traditional overhead systems, that normally carry X-ray Barriers, Injectors and small procedure lamps.


There are also special MRI-Safe® versions of our LCD mounts that are designed specifically for our exclusive MRI-Safe® Overhead Suspension Systems. Our Single and Dual Mount MRI-Safe® Overhead Systems, accommodate the single and double LCD mounts.

MRI-Safe® LED Lighting

Mounted or mobile High Performance Procedure & Surgical solutions.


AADCO's lighting technology offers cutting edge performance with precise, uniform, homogeneous lighting both on the surface as well as for deep cavity procedures thanks to innovative shadow control.
Durable - Almost unlimited LED life expectancy from the IES LM-80-2008 standard delivers tremendous product reliability and investment protection.
Efficient - Environmentally sensitive low power consumption and durable LEDs minimize environmental impact.
Optimized Shadow Management - AADCO has harnessed the farreaching potential of the multi-lens matrix to virtually eliminate shadows.

Some models are MRI-Safe®. Mounted lighting can use AADCO's Hercules® Overhead Suspensions. Mobile lighting systems have long-life rechargeable batteries that can recharge on standard wall outlets. Excellent for surgical, procedure, and exam rooms.
