February 14, 2017 — Biotronik has developed an online tool that streamlines the workflow for physicians selecting the right magnetic resonance (MR)-conditional heart monitor or pacing or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) system for their patients.
The ProMRI Configurator is an intuitive, user-friendly tool that allows physicians to select the desired MRI conditions, subsequently generating a selection of all suitable MR-conditional cardiac devices and leads approved and available in their country. In this way, physicians can ensure that patients receive the most appropriate MR-conditional cardiac system for access to MRI in case of a new implantation or a replacement.
Biotronik manufactures a broad range of MR-conditional devices, along with a wide assortment of leads, offering a variety of options and combinations for different MR conditions. The ProMRI Configurator brings ease and convenience to the physician trying to find the most suitable setup for the individual patients’ MRI needs.
The online tool marks the second offering of the ProMRI Check online platform. The first tool — the ProMRI SystemCheck — allows physicians and patients to retrospectively check whether an implanted cardiac system is MR-conditional. The ProMRI Configurator enhances the platform with its focus on the proactive selection of an MR-conditional system.
Last year, Biotronik won the Cardiostim Innovation Award in the category “Best Practice Improvement” for its MRI AutoDetect feature in implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices and pacemakers. MRI AutoDetect recognizes an MRI environment and automatically switches to and from MRI mode without the cardiologist’s intervention. This not only eases the workflow for patients, physicians and radiologists, but also adds to patients’ safety.
