Introducing the Smart MRI Ferrous Metal Detector
The value of a true MRI Ferrous Metal Detector that reduces false alarms may not be readily apparent to you until a catastrophic event occurs. This preventable event can be a devastating, life changing situation for patients, staff and to your facility. All FMDs do a good job at detecting ferrous materials whether potentially threatening or not. However, the IRadimed FMD with Remote Alarm Logging Unit [RALU] is the ONLY Ferromagnetic Detection Device with Trusense threat detection technology which reduces false alarms that contribute to alarm and reporting fatigue common with other FMD brands.
What is Trusense technology
The Zone III magnetic signature changes as staff and equipment move around and Zone IV doors open, making it difficult for other FMDs to identify a threat. The IRadimed FMD continuously adapts to its ever changing environment by employing advanced, highly sensitive sensors allowing true magnetic threats to be detected. IRadimed’s patent pending Trusense technology predicts an approaching ferrous hazard by uniquely combining Time of Flight sensing of a threat’s speed, trajectory and Zone IV door status, with IRadimed’s expertise in Dynamic Signal Processing. This clever technology reduces false alarms, all while simultaneously circumventing background magnetic field noise, resulting in the True Sense of a True Hazard
THE TRUSENSE NEURAL-ENGINE REDUCES FALSE ALARMS BY IDENTIFYING TRUE ZONE IV THREATS BASED ON THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
Position of the Threat
The TruSense “eyes” can recognise whether the position of the door to Zone III/IV is open or closed at all times and adjust the threat level accordingly.
This is smart.
Continuously adapts based on the environment magnetic signature fluctuation as staff and equipment move around throughout the day helping reduce false alarms.
Speed and Direction
The TruSense sensors radar like sensing determine the direction and speed of a ferrous item so staff is only alerted of true potential threats heading towards Zone IV.
Position of the Threat
Ferrous Location Awareness helps identify where a ferrous threat is located on a person or device by flashing the corresponding LEDs allowing staff to quickly identify an item before it becomes a hazard.
The FMD dynamic signal processor adaptively adjusts for environmental changes while sensing the speed and direction of an approaching threat to determine the threat’s validity. The FMD alerts staff with colour coded LED lights that illuminate green, yellow, or red combined with an intuitive STOP sign on the Remote Alarm Logging Unit [RALU] instructing the individual how to proceed into Zone IV.
TRUSENSE ZONE II OR III PATIENT SCREENING
NO BUTTONS REQUIRED TO DETECT SMALL HAZARDS, PROTECTING PATIENTS & MRI IMAGE QUALITY
- Trusense technology automatically recognises a patient and activates FMD
- Detects small ferrous objects on the patient that can cause image artifact
- Identifies potential burn risks from ferrous objects before the scan starts
Remote Alarm Logging Unit
The RALU touch screen interface allows for staff to quickly and easily log all ferrous items as they enter Zone IV which improves reporting accuracy.
When the FMD recognises a threat, the RALU will sound an audible alarm and flash on screen a visual alert.
The status of the Zone IV door is displayed and will trigger an MRI safety alert when a door is left open for a period of time.
Logging and reporting alarms and incidents has been streamlined with IRadimed’s RALU touch screen interface.
