Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to produce images of the human body. Some DBS systems are not approved for use during an MRI scan or near MRI scanners. However, some patients need to have MRI scans to diagnose their health conditions and determine proper treatment.
The Vercise Genus™ and Vercise™ Gevia Deep Brain Stimulation Systems can be scanned when certain conditions are met. This includes programming the stimulator to special settings for MRI. You may be eligible to have an MRI scan if you are implanted with a Boston Scientific lmageReady Vercise Genus™ and Vercise™ Gevia Deep Brain Stimulation Systems. Your doctor or healthcare provider will work with you to determine if you and your DBS system can undergo an MRI scan. Make sure you and your physician(s) are comfortable with the risks and benefits of having an MRI scan.
