YOUR SIXTH SENSE IN MRI SAFETY
Despite careful, guideline compliant screening procedures, small ferrous objects inadvertently concealed on a patient, visitor or staff member may present a significant risk within your MRI facility.
Ferroguard Screener by Metrasens is the most sensitive ferromagnetic detection system (FMDS) for MRI safety available providing whole body screening with superior detection.

FASTER, MORE RELIABLE AND BETTER ACCEPTED BY YOUR PATIENTS
Unlike hand wands which depend on the diligence of the user, Ferroguard Screener provides consistent and reliable screening every time. By adding objectivity, Ferroguard Screener helps to take pressure off you and your team.
It’s also less intrusive than a hand wand screening, eliminating invasive pat-down procedures and creating a more comfortable screening experience for your patient.
NEW SCREENING POSSIBILITIES FOR LEADERS IN THE FIELD
Ferroguard Screener’s superior sensors are making it the system of choice for implant detection studies*, for protecting against unexpected ferromagnetic implants entering Zone IV.
FERROGUARD SCREENER AT A GLANCE
A true FMDS
as recommended by the ACR for use in MRI facilities. The ACR specifically recommends against the use of conventional metal detectors for MRI screening
The Fluxgate sensor’s greater sensitivity can detect indwelling ferromagnetic materials
Preserves image quality
Keeps small ferrous items out of the MRI room, reducing artifacts and avoiding time-wasting rescans and restarts
Simple to adopt
Take the pressure off your staff and add objectivity to your screening
Accessible for every budget
A must-have addition to your MRI safety procedures.
Completely safe to use on all patients, including those with implants
The quality you expect
The only FMDS designed under ISO9001 international quality standards
