MRI near a railway? No vibration problem here.

In a medical environment, results have to be concise. Building an MRI facility for the Niagara Health Systems St. Catherines Hospital close to a railway line proved to be extra challenging.
The vibration from the railway generated significant ground-borne vibrations at a very low frequency of 5Hz – 8Hz, where typical vibration isolation methods are not effective. We designed a vibration isolation system for the sensitive MRI consisting of a 700mm thick slab supported on air springs that resulted in all requirements being satisfied.
