Manuals and Technical Guides

The technical manual includes indications, warnings, precautions, MRI information, and directions for use. Find it in the product labeling supplied with each device.

MRI Information

The MVPTM Micro Vascular Plug was determined to be MR conditional. Non-clinical testing demonstrated that the MVPTM Micro Vascular Plug Device is MR conditional. A patient with this device can be scanned safely, immediately after placement under the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 3 Tesla or less
  • Maximum spatial gradient magnetic field of 9,000 Gauss/cm or less
  • Maximum MR system reported, whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 4 W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning (i.e., per pulse sequence)
  • First Level Controlled Operating Mode for the MR system
