Cayuga Medical Center Helps Protect MRI Patients' Safety with Two New Sets of SAFESCAN® Intercept Pillar® Systems

Cayuga Medical Center, a 204-bed hospital in Ithaca, NY, has deployed two sets of SAFESCAN® Intercept Pillar® ferromagnetic detection systems to help protect MRI patients and staff, as well as to comply with new New York State requirements for enhanced MRI safety.

Ithaca, NY, March 16, 2012 --( Both at their main campus in Ithaca, NY, and at their satellite facility in Cortland, NY, Cayuga Medical Center has placed new SAFESCAN® Intercept Pillar® systems to provide an additional layer of protections for MRI patients, staff, and their brand new MRI scanners.

In 2001 in Westchester County, NY, in an accident that spurred the development of the SAFESCAN® family of products, a young boy was tragically struck and killed when a steel oxygen tank was inadvertently brought into the MRI room (

The new SAFESCAN® Pillar systems at both Cayuga MRI locations help to identify magnetic materials (which often are visually indistinguishable from magnet-safe metals) so that MRI staff can make sure that dangerous materials aren't allowed to enter the MRI scanner room.

Through the use of these products, Cayuga Medical Center is not only complying with new state requirements and the standards of hospital accreditation organizations, but they are also helping to keep MRI as the safest imaging option available by now screening for concealed magnetic materials that could become dangerous projectiles if they were brought into the room with the MRI scanner.
