Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly becoming a standard of care and hence, an unmatched and irreplaceable diagnostic method. However, patients with implantable cardiac devices have not been guaranteed safety when exposed to the MRI environment. For this reason, Medtronic has taken the initiative and developed SureScanâ„¢ devices, which are MRI compatible devices for patients that would enable them to undergo MRI scans safely. The current technological developments in magnetic resonance (MR) and their clinical applications are discussed.
