Micra was designed, tested, and approved to be used safely with MRI scanners. You can undergo an MRI scan as long as patient eligibility requirements are met. Your pacemaker ID card specifies the implanted device model. If your doctor has questions about scanning eligibility, he or she should contact a Medtronic representative or Medtronic Technical Services.
Maybe. We recommend keeping items containing magnets at least 6 inches away from an implanted pacemaker. This includes mobile phones, magnetic therapy products, stereo speakers, and handheld massagers. We do not recommend putting a mobile phone in your shirt pocket or using magnetic mattress pads and pillows.
If you have any questions about your device, contact Medtronic Patient Services.
