Hallmarq Launches Helium-free MRI

Updated: Apr 16

Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging has launched a world-first veterinary MRI that does not rely on helium to cool its magnet coils. This conduction-based cooling system in a strong vacuum eliminates the need for helium and additional power, making it more environmentally friendly and reducing the upfront and ongoing costs of offering a veterinary MRI service. The new technology is in response to growing concerns over helium supply and increased prices. Hallmarq says helium prices have soared from £12.75 per litre ($650/mcf) in December of 2017 to between £50 and £55 per litre ($2,500/mcf) in June 2022.
