Medical Device X-Ray Testing

In addition to passive implants and accessories, various types of active implants like cochlear implants, ICDs, and neurostimulators of manufacturers around the world are tested. Basic interactions and essential hazards of these implants with ionizing radiation have been investigated over the last years. We transferred our experience in MR safety measurements to the new field of ionizing radiation.

Our Primary Testing Services

We offer implantable medical device immunity testing under the duress of radiation for treatment and/or imaging. We are testing all commercial active implantable medical devices (AIMD) such as:

  • Neurostimulators
  • Pacemakers
  • Cardioverter defibrillator
  • Drug pumps
  • Cochlear implants
  • Other

We perform tests with photon beams used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in medicine, providing measurements with:

    • Radiological X-Ray system
    • Computed Tomography (keV)
    • Linear Accelerators (MeV)

Testing is based primarily on standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), according to ISO 14708-7. We developed a specified test environment, which shows dosimetric equivalence to human tissue for keV to MeV photons with high flexibility and precision in device positioning and monitoring.

Your Benefits

  • Tests based on new standardized methods for safety evaluation of AIMDs
  • Dose limits to the device at which the safety is guaranteed during imaging and radiotherapy modalities
  • Individual device testing
  • Test report
