FDA Approves Pacemaker with MRI Scanning Abilities…

A pacemaker system enables patients to receive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans with a limited exclusion zone. Biotronik (Berlin, Germany), a manufacturer of cardiovascular medical devices, reported that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given their approval for its Entovis pacemaker system with ProMRI technology. FDA approval includes both single chamber (SR-T) and dual-chamber (DR-T) Entovis pacemakers when implanted with Setrox pacing leads. About ... Read more
