MR lumenvisibility test

Specifically to medical device manufacturers of implants with a lumen (e.g. stents, coils, filters, grafts, etc.), MR:comp offers an analysis of the so-called lumenvisibility in magnetic resonance imaging, using a standardized testing procedure with a unique MR tissue phantom material simulating the appropriate T1 and T2 contrast parameters.

Learn from the analysis of your device and optimize lumen implant structures for the optimal application in the electro-magnetic environment of the MR scanner. You can also improve the MR susceptibility artifact behavior and manage the radio frequency shielding/amplification challenges for your individual device design.
This service can also be transferred to non-lumen devices in order to better understand the surrounding tissue-implant adaption from an MRI point of view.
