Biotronik to extend ProMRI technology for full-body scans

30th August 2013

Biotronik has announced that the capabilities of its ProMRI technology will be expanded to make full-body scans available to pacemaker patients.

The ProMRI offering has been designed to allow people with implanted medical devices to take advantage of magnetic resonance imagery scans, which are typically not permitted for these patients due to the risk of interference.

Thanks to this latest upgrade, people using Biotronik's Lumax 7, Ilesto and Iforia ICDs/CRT-Ds, and Evia HF-T and single/dual chamber devices will be able to undergo a wider range of potentially life-saving scans safely.

Biotronik received CE mark for its full-body ProMRI technology with a backwards compatibility in mid-August 2013 and the innovation will be showcased at the upcoming European Society of Cardiology congress.

Christoph Bohmer, international president of Biotronik, said: "Throughout our 50-year history, our goal has been to grant as many patients as possible access to leading-edge technology, ensuring the best therapies available."

The firm launched a new ProMRI trial earlier this year to assess the technology's performance in conjunction with its Entovis dual and single-chamber pacemaker systems.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801631505-ADNFCR
