MRI compatibility: innovative technology with you in mind.

MRI scans are becoming increasingly commonplace as a diagnostic tool for a wide variety of medical conditions. For CI wearers, this has been a source of hassles and pain, as the magnetic field from MRI machines exerts force on the CI magnet inside the head, causing physical pain for the patient. Therefore, it was common practice to remove the internal magnet prior to high resolution MRI examinations, requiring surgery and interrupting the patient’s hearing during the process.

That’s why we invented the new magnet design in the HiRes Ultra 3D CI system.

Advantages and benefits of the HiRes Ultra 3D CI multi-magnet assembly.

HASSLE-FREE: Our HiRes Ultra 3D cochlear implant does not require removal during an MRI, so you can treat it like any other standard medical examination.

PAIN-FREE: Our innovative multi-magnet assembly allows the magnets to spin in place so there’s no movement within the components of the implant—ensuring no pain or discomfort during an MRI.

UNINTERRUPTED HEARING: The only thing that you have to do to get an MRI is to take off the sound processor and put it back on after the MRI examination.
