Electrical and magnetic field monitoring device
The Magnetic Tracking System MTS-1000 is able to locate magnetic markers outside of a magnetically shielded room. The complete sensor unit comprises a large number of magnetometers arranged in an optimized manner to track magnetized drugs inside the human body over time.
Advanced tracking algorithms are used that are stable against large disturbing magnetic fields and, therefore, enable the suppression of the background noise. The tracking is even possible on a platform moving in the Earth’s magnetic field.
The tracking range of the MTS-1000 system is highly dependent on the magnetic target size and the optimization of the sensor arrangement. While a 30 cm range is sufficient for the medical application, several hundreds of meters are possible with large magnetic targets and a more sizable sensor system.
