BIOTRONIK releases new online tool to track MR conditional status of implantable devices
ProMRI SystemCheck will save time and streamline workflow
BIOTRONIK has launched the ProMRI SystemCheck, a new online tool for tracking the ProMRI status of implantable devices.
The simple online interface of ProMRI SystemCheck provides an easy reference for those looking to check if a certain pacemaker or ICD system is approved for MR scanning. After selecting the country in an auto-complete menu, users may input the names of pacemakers, ICDs, implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs) and leads. A single click then brings up information about whether these devices are MR conditional. The site also includes a crucial overview of scanning conditions for particular device and lead combinations, as well as required checks for each device before scanning.
"As a pioneer of ProMRI technology, BIOTRONIK has always placed the utmost value on innovative and high-quality products and their ease of use," said Wolf Ruhnke, vice president at BIOTRONIK.
"This is why we invest in innovative online tools like the ProMRI System Check, which enables users to quickly and conveniently obtain important information about our ProMRI devices and leads."
BIOTRONIK ProMRI technology enables patients with a pacemaker, implantable defibrillator, or cardiac resynchronisation therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) or pacemaker (CRT-P) to undergo an MRI scan. BIOTRONIK has the broadest portfolio of cardiac devices approved for use with MRIs on the market and is the only company to allow heart failure patients with CRT devices to take advantage of MRI scans. ProMRI technology enables pacemaker patients, and now ICD patients, to undergo full-body scans. ICD patients may now also undergo ultra high field 3.0 T scans.
