MRI Safety

MR image artifacts (ASTM F2119)

MR image artifact is not considered to be harmful to the patient but is tested to determine if MR imaging is useful near the implanted device. MR image artifact is evaluated within the field-of-view of the MRI system where the magnetic field is strongest and has the potential to distort the image. The artifact is determined by imaging with and without the device present and measuring the difference in pixel intensity of the image.
