Hassle Free MRIs
This unique magnet is composed of four rotatable magnet rods encased in a revolving disc that allows the magnet to provide alignment with the MRI field in all three dimensions. So, there is no need for head bandaging or possible surgical removal of magnet. And there is no need for restriction of head orientation at any time when in an MRI field.
Thanks to the magnet’s ability to provide alignment to the magnetic field, the torque generated in the magnet is so low, that it translates to pressure values below the pain or discomfort thresholds for adults and pediatric recipients.1,2,3,4 The magnet in the HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant, when compared to the standard Ultra magnet, has similar artefact when undergoing an MRI procedure.5
