Safety of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Non-MRI Conditional Pacemakers and ICD Devices
The primary objective of the study is to determine the safety of MRI in patients with non-MRI conditional pacemakers. The secondary objective is to determine if there are clinically relevant parameter changes in the devices.
- Arrhythmias, Cardiac
- Eligible Ages
- Between 18 Years and 85 Years
- Eligible Genders
- Accepts Healthy Volunteers
. All patients with non-MRI conditional pacemakers and ICDs between the ages of 18-85 will be eligible to participate. Medical records will be reviewed to confirm the date and make/model of device implanted. Ordering physician discusses the MRI request with radiologist, documenting that there is no appropriate alternate imaging test. Patient must have an appointment with a cardiologist/electrophysiologist prior to MRI. Banner Health policy for standard of care guidelines involving patients receiving MRI's will be followed.
. Patients will be excluded from MRI based on the Department of Radiology protocol. Additional exclusion criteria include: ICD and pacemaker dependent, Pacemaker inserted before 2002, Epicardial leads, fractured leads, abandoned leads, or temporary pacemakers (post-coronary artery bypass graft temporary epicardial pacing wires are acceptable), Patient not awake or unable communicate, Battery voltage at elective replacement interval, implanted non-MRI conditional device (other than pacemaker/ICD).
