At Advanced Bionics, we want you to have complete peace of mind while using your cochlear implant. That means having a hassle free daily routine and uninterrupted access to hearing no matter what happens.
An MRI may not be the first thing you think of when you consider a cochlear implant but it's highly likely that you will need a MRI sometime in your life.
The HiRes Ultra 3D is MRI compatible and can be safely used in a MRI without any additional procedures. Since it’s designed to be compatible with the MRI’s magnetic field, you will have no pain or discomfort during the procedure. And most importantly, you'll never have to interrupt your access to hearing because you need to get an MRI. Cochlear implants that don't have the multi-magnet assembly may require you to go through two additional surgeries in order to get a MRI--one surgery to remove the magnet before the MRI and one surgery to place the magnet back inside afterwards. With these implants, it may be a while before you can use your sound processor again. After the second surgery, it may be a while before you can use your sound processor again.
With a cochlear implant, you should have better access to hearing and less hassle in your life—that’s why you should choose the HiRes Ultra 3D. Hassle free and pain free, providing you with access to uninterrupted hearing.
