Safety:  CONDITIONAL

Bottom line: MRI permissible within designated magnetic field strength

Coronary Stents

Safety:  Conditional

Risks:  Magnetic

Conditions: Static magnetic field strength up to and including 3T.

Comments:

  • No waiting period required after implantation.
  • Because of fluid flow through the stent, there is minimal risk of heating.

Bottom Line: MRI Permissible within designated field strength
