Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, US, and its sister facility in Overland Park, have deployed Mednovus’ Safescan ferromagnetic detection systems to increase MRI safety.

The hand-held Safescan Target Scanner and the pass-through Safescan Intercept Pillar system will help to reduce the risk of patients and staff being harmed by equipment brought into the scanning room.
