Cardio technology company Biotronik, is launching something called ProMRI® SystemCheck. This is a new online tool for tracking the ProMRI status of implantable devices.
Biotronik’s ProMRI® technology enables patients with a pacemaker, implantable defibrillator, or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) or pacemaker (CRT-P) to undergo an MRI scan. The company has been a manufacturer of these implants, approved for use with MRI, since 2010. The company lays claim to the broadest portfolio of MRI-compatible devices, and continues to launch new pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) every year. It is also the only company to allow heart failure patients with CRT devices to take advantage of MRI scans.
ProMRI SystemCheck provides a simple online interface which acts as easy reference for those looking to check if a certain pacemaker or ICD system is approved for MR scanning. After selecting the country in an auto-complete menu, users may input the names of pacemakers, ICDs, implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs) and leads. A single click then brings up information about whether these devices are MR conditional. The site also includes a crucial overview of scanning conditions for particular device and lead combinations, as well as required checks for each device before scanning.
“As a pioneer of ProMRI technology, Biotronik has always placed the utmost value on innovative and high quality products and their ease of use,” said Vice President Wolf Ruhnke. “This is why we invest in innovative online tools like the ProMRI System Check, which enables users to quickly and conveniently obtain important information about our ProMRI devices and leads.”
