Just one part of our unrivaled commitment to DBS
See the difference our updated MR Conditional Labeling* made for a Parkinson’s patient.
Medtronic Activa™ DBS systems✝ allow for more RF power for imaging with B1+rms. Download the case study to see for yourself.
Medtronic DBS systems are MR Conditional and safe in the MR environment as long as certain conditions are met. If the conditions are not met, a significant risk is tissue lesions from component heating, especially at the lead electrodes, resulting in serious and permanent injury including coma, paralysis, or death. Refer to the MRI Guidelines for Medtronic Deep Brain Stimulation Systems for a complete list of conditions.
ActivaTM SC Model 37602 is not eligible for full-body MRI.
