This website aims to provide physicians with a centralized tool for information on MRI compatibility with implanted cardiac devices. Data are recorded by the manufacturers themselves, and are updated regularly (at least once a year). This website has been developed with the support of the SFC Rythmology Group (French Cardiology Society).

Manufacturer data and responsibility
All data on the mri-compatibility.eu website are provided by manufacturers via a secure connection, but cannot in any way engage the responsibility of the website's editor and publisher, or its designers, or the SFC Rythmology Group (French Cardiology Society).
In addition, the following general precautions are repeated on each website page:
Before every MRI, the device must be checked and correctly programmed.
The manufacturer’s warranty applies to the system composed of the device and lead (of the same manufacturer). Should there be any restriction difference between the lead and the device, the most restrictive applies to the whole device + lead system (e.g. in case of a 1.5T device with a 3T lead, the restriction for the entire device + lead system is 1.5T).
In case of an abandoned lead or epicardial lead, the system is not MRI-compatible.
Finally, recommendations specific to each manufacturer (and in some cases specific to a certain device) are indicated on all corresponding pages, and are provided by the manufacturers. Nevertheless, in case of doubt, please do not hesitate to contact the manufacturer directly.
