Always detecting before, not beyond the door

Ferroguard Centurion 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.

An FMDS mounted inside Zone IV is simply too late to meet ACR guidance to use FMDS for screening persons and devices approaching Zone IV. Choose Ferroguard Centurion 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 visual alerts

Ferroguard Centurion’s superior sensors provide detection reach in advance of the threshold. With its clear and intuitive eye-level traffic light Visual Early Warning (ViEW®) system it gives you time to react to prevent an accident.

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

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

During our initial use of Cellsense Plus we confiscated contraband in three occurrences from using the product to search inmate property and bedding. Thanks to Cellsense Plus, we found a set of headphones wrapped up in a small plastic bag, magazine with staples in the binding and a razor blade hidden in the spine of a 400-page book. All in all, a successful search.

A patient tried entering Zone IV with a pocket knife. The Ferroguard audible alarm immediately sounded. Although the patient had answered the prescreen safety form, Ferroguard was the ultimate reason an accident did not occur.

I can say hands down this is a must have for any agency with a cell phone problem. My correctional officers absolutely think it’s the best thing since sliced bread. You cannot get an operational cell phone (on or off) past this device. It does not matter if it’s concealed in a body cavity. It is also useful to detect weapons,SIM cards, tattoo motors or any other device made of ferrous metal.

We have been using the Ferroguard Screener faithfully for a few weeks now and are loving it! No issues… easy to use. Working at a hospital site where we don’t always change every patient, the Screener provides us with an extra tool to ensure the safety of all patients.

This powerful tool can provide managers and staff with insight into specific MR-related safety incidents. The data provided by the MRI-Safety-Manager should prove valuable in documenting improvements in MRI safety programs. Not only would this be helpful in site accreditation processes but more importantly, helpful in improving safety in the MRI environment for both the MRI staff and patients.

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.

Not all products are available in all countries. Please speak to a Metrasens representative for more information. 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.
