Technological Advances in MRI Safety

Jensen Beach, FL, January 22, 2015 --( Kopp Development Inc., the world leading manufacturer of ferromagnetic detectors for MRI Safety, is proud to announce the release of a new entryway system; FerrAlert™ HALO II PLUS. This detection system dramatically reduces alarm fatigue by not alarming on the MRI door and ferromagnetic objects exiting the MRI room. Alarm fatigue reduction is a top priority for ECRI and The Joint Commission.

In addition, FerrAlert™ HALO II PLUS will accept the forthcoming accessory from KDI, the Ferromagnetic Incident Log Manager (F.I.L.M.). This logging device will assist with Root Cause Analyses and facilitates The Joint Commission compliance.

FerrAlert™ detectors are recognized to be the most accurate ferromagnetic detectors for MRI, due to their unique, patented technology to detect and precisely locate the offending ferrous objects. This timesaving feature makes them the preferred choice by hospitals and imaging centers worldwide.

“We have shown demo models for both new products, HALO II PLUS and F.I.L.M. in our booth at RSNA 2014, and we are thrilled by the response we’ve received,” says the company’s Director of Marketing and Sales - Anna Srb. “I am both pleased and surprised that we have just entered 2015 and have already received significant amounts of orders for both new products. We are looking forward to a very exciting year.”
