Thoroughly test your MRI equipment and accessories with this powerful handheld screening magnet, equivalent in strength to a .7-T MRI. Slightly magnetic products can slip through undetected with other screening magnets of lesser strength, but with this compact magnet, that will never be the case. Lightweight and easy to use, the spherical shape of the magnet will allow for easier removal from a magnetic surface during testing. Not intended for patient screening. For device screening only. Not for use in the MRI room.
Magnetic Resonance (MR) professionals must be able to screen patients, devices, and implants for possible ferromagnetic properties prior to allowing them to enter clinical and research magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) environments and magnet rooms (so-called, "Zone III and IV" regions). It has also been proposed that all MR sites have ready access to powerful, more than 1,000 gauss hand held magnets that they can use for such testing purposes. This magnet has been specially designed by experienced clinical and research MR practitioners and leaders in the field of MR safety to meet the needs of busy MR sites. The more than 3,200 gauss magnetic field of the magnet exerts a sufficiently powerful magnetic field to sensitively test even weakly ferromagnetic objects. The magnet itself is composed of a neodymium - a so-called rare earth magnet - that permits it to lose its strength extremely slowly, at a rate of a 1% loss every 100 years. ** Also included is the foam padded case with storage to protect magnet when not in use.
