Abstract

Disclosed is a marker, dimensioned for insertion via an introduction device into tissue of the human or animal body, for marking a site for possible further examination and/or treatment, comprising: a magnetic material, for enabling the marker to be located from outside the body, using a suitable detector. Also disclosed is a magnetometer for detecting the presence of a magnetic field, wherein the magnetometer is arranged to perform an operation whereby the effects of any ambient magnetic field may be disregarded in any subsequent detecting operations.
