No Wait MRI Allows Timely Diagnosis for Patients

See how one patient’s ischemic stroke was diagnosed within an hour of an Assurity MRI™ pacemaker implant. The quick diagnosis allowed the doctor to prescribe appropriate treatment and medication for the patient without delay.


Continuously-Improving Technology Helps You Provide Even Better Care for Your Patients.

Abbott provides a full portfolio of cardiac devices for immediate access to both 3T and 1.5T MRI scans.* Eliminate the six-week wait time for MRI scans that Medtronic, Boston Scientific and Biotronik recommend.

  • Meets industry-standard MRI testing parameters
  • Shortest delay between implantation and scan feasibility on the market for pacemakers.2-4
  • MR Conditional for full body 1.5T and 3T MRI scans*
