PD240CH Dual Sensing Hand-Held Ferromagnetic Detector


Dual sensing hand-held ferromagnetic detector for patient screening prior to MRI scans

The only hand-held MRI patient screening device capable of separately detecting both ferrous and non-ferrous metallic items, the PD240CH Hand-held Patient Screener provides protection from both adverse magnetic field interaction and potential RF-induced metallic heating.

Designed as a safer and more convenient than similar alternatives, the lightweight portable patient screener has three analysis modes and a control interface that can be personalized to refine analysis capabilities based on specific patient needs.

  • LARGE SEARCH AREA for faster and accurate screening operations
  • DUAL-TONE AUDIO SIGNALLING & DUAL-COLOUR DISPLAY for high precision pinpointing
  • THREE MODES OF OPERATION allow for high-performance ferrous only, detection around the head and body, or full metal detection around the whole body
  • PATIENT SAFETY – Mitigates the risk of an RF burn occurring in the scanner due to either Ferrous or Non-Ferrous Metals
  • DUAL SENSING – Capable of separately screening for either ferrous metallic items or any type of metallic item
  • Audible, silent-vibration, and visual-magnitude alert settings
  • Personalize the interface, energy-saving mode, and sensitivity
  • Embedded Long Life Rechargeable Batteries are renewable energy and eliminate the Operation Cost of Alkaline Batteries
