Less time, more flexibility.1

AutoMRI mode is the world’s first pacemaker technology capable of detecting an MRI field and automatically switching to asynchronous mode.

Making MRI scans easy and safe for pacemaker patients.1

The presence of cardiovascular comorbidities and others such as stroke, cancer and osteoarthritis require pacemaker patients to undergo MRI scans.2,–4

We designed the AutoMRI feature with both patients and physicians in mind, ensuring these costly procedures are as hassle-free as they are safe and effective.1,5,6

Take the work out of workflow.1,6

  • One flexible visit only
  • Auto switch back to initial configuration
  • Minimum time in asynchronous mode

How does it work?1

  • MRI mode is set to ‘Auto’ and time window for strong magnetic field detection is set (up to 10 days)
  • Patient enters MRI: Device detects strong magnetic field and automatically switches to asynchronous mode
  • 5 minutes after MRI: Device automatically switched back to initial settings

Benefits of AutoMRI

  • One flexible visit: As the device switches back to initial settings after the MRI scan, there is no need for the patient to have a second visit to their cardiologist
  • Optimal patient experience:6 AutoMRI ensures that asynchronous mode is activated for the least amount of time possible
