DETERMINING MRI ELIGIBILITY SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

CAN I SCAN THIS PATIENT? QUICK, CLEAR ANSWERS.

Depending on the type of Medtronic neurostimulation system your patient has, he or she may be eligible for an MRI scan anywhere on the body or on just the head. Use the patient programmer to determine MRI eligibility. There are two different patient programmers.

The MyStimTM programmer is used with Restore family systems.

The MyStim™ programmer is used with Restore™ family systems.

Refer to the Real-time MRI Patient Eligibility Form for instructions on using the patient programmer to activate MRI Mode.

The IntellisTM patient programmer is used only with the Intellis SureScan MRI system.

The Intellis™ patient programmer is used only with the Intellis SureScan™ MRI system.

Refer to the Real-time MRI Patient Eligibility Form for instructions on using the patient programmer to activate MRI Mode.

MRI ELIGIBILITY ICONS

Both programmers will display one of the icons below to indicate MRI eligibility based on the patient’s SCS system.

Eligibility Icon Description
Icon indicating eligibility for a full-body MRI scan

FULL-BODY SCAN ELIGIBLE

The implanted neurostimulation system allows the patient to be eligible to have MRI scans of any part of the body under specific conditions.

The MRI clinician must consult the MRI guidelines for those conditions.

Icon indicating eligibility for a head-only MRI scan

HEAD SCAN ELIGIBLE WITH TRANSMIT/RECEIVE HEAD COIL

The implanted neurostimulation system allows the patient to be eligible for MRI scans of the head only using an RF transmit/receive head coil and under other specific conditions. The MRI clinician must consult the MRI guidelines for those conditions.

Icon indicating MRI scan eligibility cannot be determined

MRI SCAN ELIGIBILITY CANNOT BE DETERMINED

The MRI clinician must consult the MRI guidelines to determine how to proceed or contact Medtronic Technical Support at 800-328-0810.
