Can I Have An MRI?
Non-clinical testing has demonstrated both Aorfix™ and Altura™ products can be scanned safely in an MR system. Full details taken from our product IFUs is noted below.
Please refer to section 10.4 of the Aorfix IFU
Non-clinical testing has demonstrated that the Aorfix™ Stent Graft implants are MR Conditional. Patients can be scanned safely immediately after implantation under the following conditions:
- Static Magnetic Field
- Static field of 1.5 Tesla (1.5T) or 3.0-Tesla (3.0T)
- Maximum spatial gradient field less than or equal to 10 T/m
- Normal Operating Mode: Maximum whole-body specific absorption rate (SAR) of:
- 2.0 W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning in Normal Operating Mode at 1.5T
- 2.0 W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning in Normal Operating Mode at 3.0T
