FerrAlert™ Target Scanner
FerrAlert™ Target Scanner™ is the ONLY ferromagnetic handheld detection system that is presently available on the market and it nicely complements all other FerrAlert™ products in our portfolio. Target Scanner™ does an excellent job of distinguishing ferromagnetic from non-ferromagnetic materials and is very useful if you are informed on the presence of a potentially ferromagnetic object. However, like all handheld detectors, it is operator dependent and time consuming. Therefore, we welcome you to learn about all other FerrAlert™ detection systems to be able to make the best choice for your facility.
USER FEEDBACKDr. Emanuel Kanal, the lead author of the ACR Guidance Documents for Safe MR Practice, (now has 40 Target Scanners at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center). This is from Dr. Kanal: “I am most pleased with the sensitivity, portability, performance, and affordability of the SAFESCAN® TARGET SCANNER handheld ferromagnetic detector and will continue to use it as an integral part of my patient safety screening. I love these!”
Dr. Emanuel Kanal, MD, FACR Professor of Radiology and Neuroradiology University of Pittsburgh Medical Center “As the Lead MRI Technologist here at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, I can say we have been very pleased with the MRI SAFESCAN® TARGET SCANNER. We have been better able to serve our Soldiers and Defenders of the US who have had unfortunate traumatic events in the Middle East because of the Target Scanner. Having this instrument has allowed us to proceed with MRI scans which would have been deferred to other modalities based on the radiographic evidence metal. We have on many occasions used the Target Scanner to make a determination on the safety of performing an MRI exam.”
