Implant query
Is it safe to scan a patient with a Medtronic Synchromed II intrathecal pump?
Consider the effect the magnetic and RF fields may have on implant:
Movement - proximity of implant to critical organs.
Heating - location of the implant relative to the area of the body being scanned.
Operation - induced currents.
Local rules; Recognised MRI safety websites; Manufacturers' websites; Peer reviewed journals.
Breast biopsy
QA analysis
Paediatric speciality team
Bradford school of health studies
