We’ve produced this guide and supporting materials for Architects, Specifiers and Planners to help you define architectural layouts of MRI suites that are optimized for safety by incorporating ferromagnetic detection systems (FMDS) and the American College of Radiology’s recommended Four-Zone layout system.
Safety and usability are primary objectives when designing MRI facilities. To enhance MRI safety, Ferromagnetic Detection Systems (FMDS) such as Metrasens’ Ferroguard® system are now required to be included for all Joint Commission accredited facilities nationwide in every project for MR equipment addition, upgrade or replacement.
While you may have planned many such facilities in the past, the Metrasens’ Architect Planning Resource Pack is aimed at providing you with the most contemporary best practice advice available. It includes:
Our free guide includes:
- Details of the current Regulatory Landscape for Ferromagnetic Safety
- An Architectural Planning Guide covering the ACR 4 Zone system, ferromagnetic detection systems (FMDS) and more
- An FMDS Guide Specification
- Example MRI facility layout drawings
At Metrasens we’re committed to ensuring our FMDS are deployed in a way which maximizes safety and optimizes workflow within busy MRI facilities. This is why we try and work as closely as possible with architects and planners at as early a stage as possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like our support with this.
