MRI Safety and Compatibility Assessment

Have you assessed the safety of your medical device in the MRI environment? 

MRI Safety is complicated, but we can help!

Often we are faced with medical device manufacturers who are going through the process of MRI labelling for the first time. We pride ourselves in our ability to help our clients navigate this process.

Do you have a current of upcoming project that requires MRI testing or labelling? Ceo, Yannick Ponvianne and technical sales engineer Spencer Parent are present at our booth and ready to assist you. Let us guide you through the process of the MRI testing required to get your product on the market.

Numerical modeling & Worst-Case Determination

Medical devices may experience an increase in temperature as a result of the radio frequencies present during an MRI exam.

Evaluation of this radio frequency heating is mandatory when the device is in contact with the patient. The heating depends on multiple factors: physical characteristics of the device, characteristics and settings of the MRI, positioning of the device vis-à-vis the machine, implantation conditions for an implantable MD, … etc.

The evaluation of the heating can therefore be complex. The use of numerical modeling simplifies and consolidates these studies. HEALTIS is expert in this field and can accompany you:

To determine worstcases in ranges of passive devices with multiple configurations
to determine the points of maximum heating on a device
for specific studies requiring the modeling of radiofrequency heating.

Technical and regulatory expertise

HEALTIS is a leader in evaluating the safety of medical devices introduced in the MRI environment. Our experts participate in the development of new knowledge and the development of standards in the field. This allows us to be at the forefront of knowledge in the evaluation of interactions between MRI and medical devices but also to anticipate changes.

Through contact with our customers, we have also acquired expertise in the regulatory requirements for the marketing of medical devices, in all international markets.

This makes HEALTIS the ideal companion to maximize your chances of having an irreproachable assessment of the safety of your product in MRI. This accompaniment by an expert is offered from the first contacts with HEALTIS. If your project requires it, we will be able to offer you technical and regulatory assistance services. These benefits may take the following forms:

  • Proposed Risk Assessment Strategy
  • Determination of the worstcases
  • Writing Rationals
  • Interpretation of results and marking of the device according to ASTM F2503
  • Audit of your risk assessment in MRI and proofreading of documents

R&D Support

Offering a device compatible with an MRI environment can be a real competitive advantage. For some products it has even become indispensable.

Taking into account the safety aspect in MRI in the design of a product is complex for the manufacturer. This requires skills that are not always available internally: in-depth knowledge of MRI, interactions between electromagnetic waves of MRI and devices, knowledge of material physics and electronics. This may also require tests on prototypes, with suitable testing means.

As experts in the field, our engineers and doctors can guide you during these phases of R & D, as much on the technical as regulatory aspects. So you focus on your skills and we bring you additional skills to carry out your project. The project will benefit from better control of costs and deadlines.

Training services

Wishing to share our knowledge, our training aims to help you develop skills in assessing the safety of MRI devices. We then discuss the technical, scientific and regulatory aspects of the safety and compatibility of medical devices in the MRI environment. Here are some examples of themes we can deal with:

  • the risks generated by the interactions between the Medical Device and the electromagnetic waves of the MRI
  • applicable regulations and test methods for evaluating the safety of a Medical Device in MRI
  • Integration of MRI compatibility into product design
These training courses are tailor-made to be adapted to your problem, your products and your level of knowledge. They usually take place on our premises, which allows us to illustrate our subject by carrying out practical work in the MRI environment.

You will be trained by one or more expert(s) of HEALTIS, member(s) of the normative groups of the domain.
