Advisa MRI


Advisa MRI SureScan Pacing System

Now two generations ahead in pacemakers approved for MRI

  • Most advanced pacing technology
  • Only pacing technology licensed by Health Canada for full body MRI scans
  • Supported by extensive safety data

The Advisa DR MRI™ SureScan® Model A3DR01 and Advisa SR MRI™ SureScan® Model A3SR01 IPGs are indicated for use as a system. A complete SureScan pacing system, which consists of an approved combination MRI SureScan device with SureScan lead(s), is required for use in the MRI environment.

Meeting the Need for Safe Pacing and MRI


It is estimated that up to 75% of pacemaker patients will have a medical need for an MRI over the lifetime of their device.3

Convergence of Needs: MRI and Pacemakers

Elderly patients are the primary users of MRI. Individuals over age 65 are twice as likely to need an MRI compared to younger patients.4

The potential need for a pacemaker also increases with age.


Comprehensive Patient Care

Medical and surgical specialties rely on MRI for diagnosis. In fact, MRI is the gold standard diagnostic tool for soft tissue imaging for neurologists, oncologists, and orthopaedic surgeons. Your pacemaker choice today can affect their decisions and diagnostic capabilities tomorrow.

The prevalence of common comorbidities increases over age 65,5-7 often requiring MRI – the same population most likely to require a pacemaker.

How the Advisa MRI Pacing System Works

Radiopaque icons confirm SureScan technology

The Advisa MRI Pacing System with SureScan® technology has met the rigors of clinical evaluation, regulatory review, and FDA approval.

The Advisa MRI Pacemaker Was Specifically Engineered for the MRI Environment

Multiple safety features were designed and incorporated from the ground up:

  • Device verification appears on pacemaker programmer screen
  • One-screen programming clearly outlines necessary steps to scanning and pacing
  • The Advisa MRI pacemaker contains an easily identifiable radiopaque marker. The SureScan leads may or may not contain the radiopaque marker.
  • Device contains robust circuitry
  • Dedicated programming mode provides additional security and backup for “Power On Reset” (POR)
  • Hall sensor immune to strong magnetic fields

Four SureScan Lead Options That Are Proven Safe and Effective in the MRI Environment

The four available SureScan lead options:

  • CapSureFix Novus MRI SureScan Model 5076 and 4076
  • CapSureFix MRI SureScan Model 5086 
  • SelectSecure MRI SureScan Pacing and Sensing Lead Model 3830 
  • CapSure Sense MRI SureScan Model 4074 and 4574

Over 3.2 M 5076 leads have been sold worldwide with over 97.6% reliability at 10 years.8

Builds Upon Medtronic Innovations

MVP® Mode promotes intrinsic conduction with backup pacing

Managed Ventricular Pacing Mode

  • Managed Ventricular Pacing (MVP®) promotes intrinsic conduction and reduces unnecessary right ventricular pacing by 99%9
  • Cardiac Compass® graphically displays more than a year of trended data to help monitor and manage AF and AT
