The good news is that the Medtronic SynchroMed™ II pump was designed to be safe under certain conditions for patients who may require an MRI scan.* The pump is also compatible with many other diagnostic tests.

The pump is unlikely to be impacted by CT or CAT scans, diagnostic ultrasound, diagnostic x-rays or fluoroscopy, electrocautery, or MEG or PET scans.
Prior to receiving a diagnostic test, tell your doctor that you have an implanted drug delivery system.
If you encounter a doctor or MRI technologist who seems unclear about MRI safety related to your Medtronic drug delivery system, show him or her your Medtronic patient ID card. The front of your card lists the model number of your drug delivery system. Your doctor can enter that model number on our MRI resource library, listed on the back of your ID card. The website will provide CE mark approved information for safely conducting an MRI scan with your Medtronic drug delivery device.
If you have misplaced you patient ID card, you may request a new one from your doctor.
