A magnetic sweep was a type of tricorder scan that measured magnetism.

In 2268, Hikaru Sulu made a magnetic sweep of the Kalandan homeworld, only to notice strange readings that he claimed was "like a door opened and then closed again". Later on, he noticed the same readings. These indicated Losira's appearances and disappearances. (TOS: "That Which Survives")
