ScanWise Implant is developed to simplify scanning of patients with MR Conditional implants


Patients with implants are not scanned routinely in MRI systems. Warning signs prohibit entrance to patients with a pacemaker, a hip implant, a clip or vascular coil, or any other device implanted in or worn on the body.


In recent years, however, many MR Conditional implants have become available, and patients with such implants can now benefit from MR imaging. Nevertheless, scanning patients with MR Conditional implants remains challenging.

This publication provides an overview of our new ScanWise Implant technology that supports you in meeting current MR Conditional labeling requirements.



How does ScanWise Implant help you?

It provides you with the guidance and automatic features

to easily meet the implant manufacturer's MR Conditional

specifications. It is as easy as entering patient

demographics during the registration process.
