Revo MRI SureScan Pacemaker.

This Very different pacemaker is making news all over the country. It can be implanted into patients and they can still have and MRI scan. Unlike the days of old where Pacemakers were contraindicated for MRI's these may be scanned under very strict guidelines by the manufacturer.
This is a breakthrough in advancement in our field! We are lucky to have companies like Medtronic pushing the boundaries of technology every day.

MRI: Imaging Procedure of Choice

Product Lookup



Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows doctors to see internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, tumors, areas of infection and more, without X-rays or surgery, and without exposing patients to ionizing radiation. MRI is the standard of care in soft tissue imaging, providing information not seen with X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. MRI is therefore critical for the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many diseases.

The Revo MRI SureScan pacing system is MR Conditional designed to allow patients to undergo MRI under the specified conditions for use. A complete system, consisting of a Medtronic Revo MRI SureScan IPG implanted with two CapSureFix MRI™ SureScan leads is required for use in the MRI environment.
