Guidelines for Performing Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging Examinations in Patients with Cardiac Electronic Devices
Orientações para Realização de Exames de Ressonância Magnética Nuclear em Pacientes com Dispositivos Eletrônicos Cardíacos
It is estimated that up to 75% of patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) will have an indication for nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) throughout their lives. Th is population has been historically excluded from the list of patients considered eligible for this examination due to the characteristics of the devices.
