MRI info

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) information

All of Audio Technologies middle ear implants are MRI compatible till at least 3 Teslas.


Information for the patient:

MRI exam can pose risks for patients who carry metallic prosthesis in their body. The risk can be caused by the magnetic field interactions or excessive MRI-related heating.

The middle ear implants manufactured by Audio Technologies are all MR compatible till 3 Tesla and allow patients to undergo the MRI exam.

The declaration, that can be downloaded below, doesn't list all the manufactured items. In fact, for each model, only the worst case - calculated considering weight and mass - have been tested. All the other smaller and lighter prosthesis, which are magnetically less relevant, are consequently considered compatible.

The ear prosthesis without any metallic part are all MR safe.
