The Accent MRI pacemaker, with the Tendril MRI lead, is an MRI conditional system, offering safe performance of a full-body MRI scan on the patient using a 1.5 T (Tesla) field-strength MRI scanner.1
An optional, easy-to-use hand-held unit (SJM MRI Activator™ device) can be applied to enable and disable pre-programmed MRI settings, which is designed to simplify workflow and increase clinic efficiency. The Accent MRI pacemaker is the first MRI conditional pacemaker to offer the option of wireless telemetry for streamlined patient management.
