Magnetic Monitoring - medical and technical use

  • IMG_27132.jpgMagnetic monitoring is a method for 3-D-localisation of magnetic marked objects.
  • Based on sophisticated mathematical algorithms magnetic monitoring provides position and orientation of the magnetic marker.
  • Example: Magnetic monitoring is used for localisation of magnetised pills for investigation of the human gastrointestinal tract. A patient swallows a small magnetic pill which moves like a cherry pit through the intestinal system and can easily be observed during its journey.
  • The movement of the pill reveals specific motility patterns and possibly disorders or malfunctions. Combined with capsule endoscopes magnetic monitoring allows the alignment of pictures and positions.
  • Magnetic Monitoring can be combined with magnetic active drug release and helps in pharmaceutical research.
