PrimeAdvanced SureScan MRI Neurostimulator

Spinal Cord Stimulation


PrimeAdvanced SureScan MRI neurostimulator is a 16-electrode nonchargeable device. This neurostimulator is part of the first pain neurostimulation system that allows patients safe* access to MRI scans anywhere on the body. The PrimeAdvanced SureScan MRI neurostimulator delivers stimulation through one or more leads in the epidural space.


A Medtronic implantable neurostimulation system is indicated for spinal cord stimulation (SCS) as an aid in the management of chronic, intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs — including unilateral or bilateral pain associated with the following conditions:

  • Failed Back Syndrome (FBS) or low back syndrome or failed back
  • Radicular pain syndrome or radiculopathies resulting in pain secondary to FBS or herniated disk
  • Postlaminectomy pain
  • Multiple back operations
  • Unsuccessful disk surgery
  • Degenerative Disk Disease (DDD)/herniated disk pain refractory to conservative and surgical interventions
  • Peripheral causalgia
  • Epidural fibrosis
  • Arachnoiditis or lumbar adhesive arachnoiditis
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), or causalgia


MRI Eligibility

Medtronic offers the first pain neurostimulation system with SureScan MRI Technology that is FDA-approved and engineered for patients to safely undergo an MRI scan anywhere in the body.*

SureScan MRI Systems provide long-lasting1 chronic pain treatment with the confidence of knowing that patients can also get optimal diagnostic treatment whenever the need arises.

When an MRI is needed for a patient with an implanted pain stimulation system, programmer software simplifies the identification of implanted system components and MRI-scan eligibility.
