New implantable cardiac pacemaker approved for use in MRI

The FDA has approved for use in MRI a new implantable cardiac pacemaker, Medtronic’s RevoMRI SureScan Pacing System.

Dear faculty and staff,


The FDA has approved for use in MRI a new implantable cardiac pacemaker, Medtronic’s RevoMRI SureScan Pacing System. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have also approved billing for MR services for patients with this device.  Please note that at the present time, this is the only approved pacemaker for use in MRI, so prior to anticipated MR scanning, it is essential that we are certain the patient has this device.
