My fellow MR Technologist and Radiographer,
We have seen the number of Active Implanted Medical Devices increasing while our task of researching these devices grows more time consuming and frustrating. The FDA has heard us, understands and is trying to make things better! Their goal is to provide us with labeling we can understand and use.
We have been asked to gather information to aid in the MR conditional labeling of implants and devices. Our friend in the FDA (Terry Woods) has given us a list of questions that would help them with the process. She is looking to see how much information is readily available to scanning technologists. Towards that end, please take the time to answer these questions. We will collect the information and return it back to the FDA.
Thanks in advance to all of you for your assistance! Although the FDA is a US government organization the issues occur across the world and resolutions are shared amongst organizations. I will use all the input we can gather.
