Ferroguard® Assure

ENABLES YOU TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR MRI PROJECTILE SAFETY

SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER FMDS

Only Ferroguard Assure provides comprehensive tools to enable you to stay safe, and a simple management system to demonstrate compliance.

Ferroguard systems are recognized to be the most trustworthy FMDS available – as adopted by 9 of the top 10 best hospitals in the US*. Now linking into Metrasens Safety Suite, Ferroguard Assure is the most capable entry control FMDS available, and is the only FMDS that provides you with data and insights to enable continuous improvements in MRI safety.

ADOPT FERROGUARD ASSURE AND JOIN METRASENS' SAFETY CYCLE

Right with you in the control room, Ferroguard Assure’s MRI-Safety-Manager™ provides you with real-time oversight of magnet room door status, ferromagnetic activity and Zone IV entries. Ideal for facilities without direct line-of-sight.

The only system enabling you to categorize “ferromagnetic items unintentionally entering the MRI scanner room” (as required by TJC 2015 accreditation standards). Link to MRI Safety™ app, and for the first time use automatically generated MRI safety metrics, insights and benchmarking to enhance your safety management and reporting.

ALWAYS DETECTING BEFORE, NOT BEYOND THE DOOR

Ferroguard Assure is always wall-mounted outside the MRI door in Zone III, rather than inside the door frame like alternative FMDS. This means no detection gaps or sensor activation delays – even with outswing doors.

Choose Ferroguard Assure and be confident that your FMDS will be active and will alert you in those crucial seconds that make the difference between incident and catastrophe.

CLEAR, SIMPLE ALERTS

With its clear and intuitive eye-level traffic light display Ferroguard Assure’s Visual Early Warning (ViEW®) gives you time to react to prevent an accident.

A secondary audible alert gives additional warning if the Visual Early Warning is ignored.




LOWEST PROBABILITY OF ALARM FATIGUE

Alarm fatigue is consistently identified as the most serious technology-related safety issue.** Ferroguard Assure’s Smart Alarm™ has been shown to reduce extraneous audible alerts by 85%.***

Never an alarm on exiting the room, never an alarm through door movement. Smart Alarm™ works with any MRI shielded door without compromising detection of risk items.

Free Guide to MRI Safety & Ferromagnetic Detection Regulations

With multiple professional and accrediting bodies involved, it can be difficult to keep track of what the various published safety recommendations and guidelines in the US say. Metrasens is pleased to assist by providing this summary of the present status as it relates to the growing adoption of ferromagnetic detection systems (FMDS) for the prevention of MRI projectile incidents.

Ferroguard should not be used to replace current MRI screening procedures. The safety of staff and patients is best served by the combination of conscientious screening protocols, thorough staff training AND installation of a ferromagnetic detection system used in the correct manner.
