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
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.



Kopp Development Inc. acquires Mednovus, Inc. Ferromagnetic Detection business:
With the acquisition, Kopp Development is expanding its MRI Safety product line to include the hand-held FerrAlert™ Target Scanner™ line. Kopp already had the most extensive product offering in the industry. With the addition of the hand-held detector products, Kopp now has a product for all aspects of MRI safety regarding the magnetic field of the MRI machine.click here to read the entire press release

FerrAlert™ Target Scanner™ is the ONLY ferromagnetic handheld detection system that is presently available on the market and it nicely complements all other FerrAlert™ products in our portfolio. Target Scanner™ does an excellent job of distinguishing ferromagnetic from non-ferromagnetic materials and is very useful if you are informed on the presence of a potentially ferromagnetic object. However, like all handheld detectors, it is operator dependent and time consuming. Therefore, we welcome you to learn about all other FerrAlert™ detection systems to be able to make the best choice for your facility.
