FERROMAGNETIC DETECTION SYSTEMS FOR MRI SAFETY

Ferromagneti Detector

allowing the Technologist or Radiographer to quickly and easily identify and remove ferromagnetic threats.
NO Invasive searching, pat down or intimate personnel contact required.

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

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
FerrAlert™ Encompass automatically detects and logs unintended ferromagnetic objects entering Zone IV. It is the only system that provides a photographic stream and does not require manual logging, thus allowing the technologists to perform uninterrupted patient care without wasting time with self-reporting. The data analysis software allows effortless generation of reports for The Joint Commission inspections. It also allows for the analysis of safety trends that can be shared throughout the entire hospital system.



With COVID-19 Virus stressing out the healthcare systems around the world, Kopp Development Inc., is committed to support MRI Safety industry with integrity and high-quality products.

Even though some of our onsite installations have been temporarily suspended, we are offering a few products that do not require installation or can be self-installed with our remote guidance.

GaussAlert™ is designed for medical equipment that is used in MRI rooms, such as Ventilators. GaussAlert™ is utilized to keep MR conditional equipment outside of a particular MRI exclusion zone to prevent the equipment’s malfunction and sub-sequential patient injury.

FerrAlert™ Target Scanner™ is designed for medical equipment that is used in MRI rooms, such as Ventilators. GaussAlert™ is utilized to keep MR conditional equipment outside of a particular MRI exclusion zone to prevent the equipment’s malfunction and sub-sequential patient injury.

FerrAlert™ SOLO is a highly sensitive prescreening Ferromagnetic Detection System (FMDS) that is turned on by body heat and therefore does not require any physical contact with the detector. Social Distancing can be maintained during the screening process, since the location of the threat is pinpointed by the detector. Download FerrAlert™ SOLO Brochure
