MRI-Safe Implant List - Useful Link of the Day

How often have you needed to look up what orthopedic hardware or implantable device (Cardiac, neurological, thoracic, abdominal, or otherwise) is safe? As a radiologist or technologist in medical imaging, this issue often arises. Although many vendors make their implantable devices currently with MRI-safe materials, there are still quite a few prosthetic devices that contain significant amount of metal that either may migrate or heat up in the patient during an MRI scan. There are several books out there that list all the MRI-safe devices and MRI-safe implants. Don't forget to utilize the internet too. We found a great resource where you can search for which devices are MRI safe. Here is the link at MRI Safety.com
