GaussAlert™ is designed to help keep MR Conditional equipment outside of the MRI exclusion zone. GaussAlert™ is programmed to alarm when the preset magnetic field strength is exceeded. It produces an attention-getting audio alarm when MR Conditional equipment is too close to the MRI magnet.
Medical equipment that is used in the MRI room, such as infusion pumps, contrast injectors, patient monitors, anesthesia machines and others may malfunction and potentially injure the patient if not kept outside of a specific magnetic field strength. In addition, MR Conditional equipment can degrade the image quality of a scan if brought too close to the MRI magnet. With GaussAlert™, the possibility of equipment malfunction and image degradation is dramatically reduced.
