See the video published by MED-EL titled Why is MRI Safety So Important for Cochlear Implants?
MRI is one of the most important diagnostic imaging tools for healthcare professionals. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans use powerful magnets to create detailed images of the inside of a person’s body. MRI safety is especially important for cochlear implant recipients, because every cochlear implant has an internal magnet that can be affected by an MRI scan.
Our SYNCHRONY Cochlear Implant uses a revolutionary, self-aligning magnet that ensures the highest degree of MRI safety and comfort of any cochlear implant. SYNCHRONY is the only cochlear implant that lets you have high-resolution 3.0 Tesla MRI scans without needing surgery to remove the magnet.* With SYNCHRONY, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re ready for anything that life can bring.
