Detectors, Metallic Foreign Body, Magnetic

Definition : Detectors designed to identify/locate ferromagnetic foreign objects in a patient's body and/or discriminate ferromagnetic foreign objects from nonferromagnetic foreign objects. These detectors typically consist of a handheld unit with controls (e.g., dials and knobs), a display and/or a speaker, and one or more attached probes. Some detectors include a dedicated probe that can be placed on/near the patient's body surface (e.g., in wounds). Typically, a drive coil generates an alternating magnetic field and two search coils in the sides of this field are positioned in such a way that the signal generated by one coil cancels the signal from the other in the absence of a magnetic body. When a ferromagnetic object is present on one side of the two coils, the balance is upset, generating voltage that produces an audible signal and/or deflects a meter. Magnetic foreign-body detectors are used mainly to locate foreign bodies in the eyes, but they are also used in other applications such as to locate metallic implants in the body (e.g., before a magnetic resonance imaging scan) and objects that may have been left in the patient during a surgical procedure.
