  • Non-clinical testing1  and MRI simulations were performed to evaluate the entire family (i.e., available diameters and lengths) of the MicroPlex Coil System (MCS). Non-clinical testing demonstrated that the entire family of these embolization coils (see table below) is MR Conditional. A patient with an implant from this family can be scanned safely in an MR system under the following conditions:

    - Static magnetic field of 1.5-Tesla and 3-Tesla, only

    - Maximum spatial gradient magnetic field of 4,000-gauss/cm (40-T/m)

    -Maximum MR system reported, whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 2-W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning (i.e., per pulse sequence) in the Normal Operating Mode


    Under the scan conditions defined, the MicroPlex Coil System (MCS) is expected to produce a maximum temperature rise of 2.3˚C after 15-minutes of continuous scanning (i.e., per pulse sequence).

    In non-clinical testing, the image artifact caused by the MicroPlex Coil System (MCS), Cosmos 18 extends approximately 5-mm from this device when imaged with a gradient echo pulse sequence and a 3-Tesla MR system.
