Medtronic has spent over 10 years conducting exhaustive research and rigorous testing to design breakthrough pacing systems that allow patients with pacemakers to safely undergo MRI scans under specific conditions.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows doctors to see internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, tumors, areas of infection and more, without X-rays or surgery, and without exposing patients to ionizing radiation. MRI is the standard of care in soft tissue imaging, providing information not seen with X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. MRI is therefore critical for the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many diseases.
