PD240CH Hand-Held Metal Detector

Localization in the human body of ferromagnetic materials and prostheses which are dangerous in MRI scans: use of the CEIA PD240CH hand-held metal detector.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) generates a strong magnetic field, at present in the order of 3-4 T (Tesla), far in excess of the earth’s magnetic field, which reaches a maximum of about 70 μT at the poles. This strong field can cause serious damage to patients that have ferromagnetic metal devices or implants. The damage is proportional to the field generated, the mass of the object and its degree of magnetic susceptibility.
