Reveal LINQ™ ICM is MR-Conditional at 3.0 and 1.5 T with no post-insertion waiting required

Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor MRI Conditions for Use

The Reveal LINQ™ device can be safely scanned in patients under the following conditions. Failure to follow these conditions for use may result in a hazard to the patient during an MRI scan:

  • Hydrogen proton MRI equipment must have a static magnetic field of 1.5 Tesla (T) or 3.0 T. 
  • Cylindrical bore magnet with static magnetic field must be 1.5 T or 3.0 T; a maximum spatial gradient of 25 T/m (2500 gauss/cm) must be used. 
  • Whole body gradient systems with gradient slew rate specification must be ≤200 T/m/s per axis. 
  • The Whole Body Specific Absorption Rate (WB-SAR) as reported by the MRI equipment must be ≤4.0 W/kg; the head SAR as reported by the MRI equipment must be ≤3.2 W/kg. 
  • There are no restrictions on the use of local transmit or receive coils for imaging of the head or extremities. Do not use transmit coils on the chest, trunk, or shoulder region. There are no restrictions on the placement of receive-only coils.
