Kopp Development Inc. Installed Their Ferromagnetic Detectors for MRI Safety Throughout Entire VISN 16


Jensen Beach, FL, July 12, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Kopp Development Inc., is proud to announce that South Central VA Health Care Network (VISN 16) outfitted all their MRI facilities with FerrAlert™ HALO detectors. After a comprehensive evaluation of all available ferromagnetic detectors on the market, VISN 16 recognized FerrAlert™ detector’s competitive strength and purchased 14 units.

Nearly everyone who works around magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has heard of or experienced incidents involving ferromagnetic projectiles. As the number and strength of MRI scanners has increased, ferromagnetic accidents have become more frequent. Some have caused serious damage to the MRI scanners, injuries to patients and staff and even death.

Keith Kopp, President of Kopp Development Inc. states: “We are especially proud to enhance the safety of our brave veterans in this VISN as well as at locations throughout the country. The VA has comprehensively applied its research on patient safety in very productive ways.”

Due to the dramatic increase of MRI accidents, several professional and regulatory organizations now strongly recommend the use of ferromagnetic detectors, including The Joint Commission, American College of Radiology, VA MRI Design Guide and Facility Guidelines Institute.
