In this presentation, participants will delve into the intricacies of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and the challenges posed by implantable devices. Through a series of engaging discussions and practical examples, learners will gain the skills to interpret MR conditional implant guidelines, ensuring safe and accurate imaging procedures. They will explore techniques to adapt to meet MR conditions, including maximum spatial gradient, specific absorption rate (SAR), B1+rms, and time limitations. Additionally, attendees will understand the origin of these conditions, providing a comprehensive understanding of the factors influencing MR imaging safety. Furthermore, participants will learn various methods to mitigate risks when MR conditions cannot be met. This presentation equips participants with essential knowledge and practical strategies essential for proficient MR imaging in the presence of implants.


After this presentation, you will be able to:

  • Interpret MR conditional implant guidelines
  • Adapt scanning technique to meeting MR conditions
  • Recognize the MR technologist’s scope of practice when scanning implants
  • Demonstrate methods to mitigate risks when conditions cannot be met
