Traditionally, implantable cardiac devices like pacemakers and implanted cardiac defibrillators (ICDs) have been contraindicated for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, which are the gold standard for soft tissue imaging. Patients with implanted cardiac devices, however, would often benefit from the diagnostic capabilities of MRI scans. BIOTRONIK understands the pressing need for MR conditional pacemakers and ICDs, and developed its ProMRI® technology enables patients with a pacemaker, implantable defibrillator, or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) or pacemaker (CRT-P) to undergo MRI scanning. 

BIOTRONIK has the broadest portfolio of devices approved for use with MRIs on the market and is the only company to allow heart failure patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices to take advantage of MRI scans.

This site is designed as a resource for patients and medical professionals interested in learning more about ProMRI® technology from BIOTRONIK. Here you will find important information about topics ranging from implantation and device functionality, to how a ProMRI® pacemaker or ICD keeps patients safe during an MRI scan.
