Cardiology and Radiology
Annually, 12–16% of device patients are likely to have an MRI ordered.1-4 Historically, less than 1% would have received a scan.1-4 Today, with our exclusive MRI portfolio, you can ensure safe MRI access for most patients when MR conditions are met.
Medtronic has long been committed to providing cardiac device patients with access to the diagnostic and treatment benefits of MRI. Our portfolio of SureScan™ cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P), cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D), implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), pacemakers (IPG), and insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) systems provides exactly that — safe, full body MRI access.
*Revo MRI™ pacemaker is only labeled 1.5T MR Conditional.
Data from 2010 MarketScan® Commercial and Medicare databases from Truven Health Analytics, Inc. were used to characterize non-pacemaker and pacemaker cohorts and utilization or radiology services. Cohorts were matched based on age, gender, and comorbidities.
