The MRI Patient Scanner conveniently identifies harmful ferromagnetic materials that are dangerous within the MRI Suite environment.
The MRI Patient Scanner is a portable metal detector (FMDS) which combines high sensitivity to ferromagnetic metals with immunity to non-ferromagnetic metals.
The scanner has 3 analysis modes that are selectable via the easy-to-use keyboard interface. To ensure optimum operating conditions for the scanner, the patient should be lying on a metal-free bed.
By using all three modes, the MRI Suite staff can obtain an indication of any metals used inside the patient and of their magnetic suspectibility. Together, with written and verbal questionaires, the staff will have a clear picture of the risk situation and be able to make the most appropriate decisions for optimal patient and facility care.
