Metal implant localizers: frontiers and diagnostic feasibility


. The paper describes and analyses a method for locating metal implants based on the interaction of a conductive object with a weak alternating magnetic field. Theoretical values for the boundary of detectability and the boundary of localability are introduced to show some technical characteristics, the diagnostic feasibility and limitations of the method. Clinical experiences are described in order to compare the theoretical expectations with practical results. Several advantages of the proposed diagnostic method in terms of inexpensive instrumentation, ease of operation and sensitivity are discussed.
