FERROMAGNETIC DETECTION SYSTEMS FOR MRI SAFETY

allowing the Technologist to quickly and easily identify and remove all ferromagnetic threats.
NO Invasive pat down or handheld detectors required

OTHER DETECTORS lack the technology to locate the threat, thus leaving the staff guessing and wasting valuable scan time.

alerts on the approach of ferromagnetic threats to Zone IV well before the portal is reached. Warning lights can be seen from both inside and outside the magnet room. The greater the threat, the further away the warning is activated. The audio alarm is activated only at the threshold.

OTHER DETECTORS also have visual warnings but they are NOT visible to staff when inside the magnet room. Relying ONLY on acoustic alarm once the ferrous object is already in Zone IV is simply BAD PRACTICE.

Alarm lights can be seen from both inside and outside the MRI room giving the Technologist full control. ACR and The Joint Commission require control of Zone IV at all times.

OTHER DETECTORS also have alarm lights, but they are NOT visible to staff when inside the MRI room.

suppresses false warnings and alarms by concentrating only on the threats that are trying to enter the magnet room and ignoring surrounding ferromagnetic disturbance. The use of 24 sensors and 18 detection zones ensures uniform sensitivity and detection reliability from head to toe.

OTHER DETECTORS produce great number of irrelevant warnings and false alarms by detecting moving ferrous objects all around the hospital (e.g. techs moving in chairs, gurneys rolling down the hall, close-by elevators, etc...)

for all facility architectural layouts. For outward swinging MRI doors the unit is mounted on the inside part of the door frame. With in-swinging doors on the outside.

OTHER DETECTORS produce image artifacts if installed inside the MRI room. When installed outside the MRI room, one side of the detector is completely blocked by MRI door when opened outwards (85% of the MRI doors open outwards).

by NOT PRODUCING alarm on:

  • Doors (in-swing and out-swing)
  • Exit from the magnet room
  • Cross Traffic
Ferromagnetic Incident Log Manager is now available as an accessory to the FerrAlert™ HALO II PLUS detector. This patent pending logging device was designed specifically with the new The Joint Commission standards in mind. In addition, it is a great tool to assist with internal Root Cause Analyses. ONLY the FerrAlert™ FILM device will be able to help MRI providers to comply with the new The Joint Commission standards and there is no similar product available on the market.
