FERROGUARD SCREENER

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.
