Biotronik releases new online tool to track MR conditional status of implantable devices


Biotronik has launched ProMRI SystemCheck, a new online tool for tracking the ProMRI status of implantable devices.

The online interface of ProMRI SystemCheck provides a reference for those looking to check if a certain pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (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 and leads. One click then brings up information about whether these devices are MR conditional.

The site also includes an overview of scanning conditions for particular device and lead combinations, as well as required checks for each device before scanning.
