An MRI uses strong magnets to create images of the organs and tissues in the body. In general, MRI scans are safe, routine procedures. But in rare cases, they can interfere with your IPG, possibly leading to injury. If you have an implanted device, you need to make sure your device is approved to receive an MRI.
Fortunately, with certain Abbott neurostimulators, you can safely have an MRI scan when conditions for safe scanning are met. Your clinician can help you to understand whether your Infinity™ DBS System configuration is MR Conditional.
