Medical MRI Calibration Kit


MRI3T Test Kit

RF Power has been used in medical applications for many years and require high precision RF power measurements. Manufacturers of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) rely on Bird's RF expertise and test equipment for their research and development and field calibration of MRI equipment.

Accuracy of RF power measurements delivered during clinical MRI testing ensures safety and regulatory compliance. Under strict safety guidelines, this ensures that patients are scanned safely in both 1.5T and 3T systems and that no RF burns occur. Bird’s new MRI test kit provides a complete set of equipment to carry out precise and independent measurements of RF power encountered. It also determines if the equipment is not in the appropriate exposure limits during device or pulse sequencing test.


  • Test RF cables and antennas at the frequency of operation.

  • Locate RF cable, connector and antenna problems at the source.

  • FDR (Frequency Domain Reflectometry) measurement method results in a highly reliable assessment of the health of critical components in your system; ultimately providing a “heads-up” before a failure occurs.

  • Fault location or DTF mode plots VSWR or Return Loss levels at each distance point along the cable and antenna system length.

  • Cable Loss function measures insertion loss of the cable system over a given frequency range.

  • OTG USB communication port for connection to Bird power sensors, storage devices and battery charging.

Kit Includes:

  • RF Power Meter Display (5000-NG)

  • Load (8581A)

  • RF Power Sensor (5014M)

  • Rugged Carrying Case (4300B672-2)

  • Elements 

  • Adapters
