American Journal of Roentgenology ; MR Conditional Labeling Information: Notably, the specific content of the MR labeling may take other forms especially for electrically active implants and devices as the format continues to be refined by the FDA in an ongoing effort to properly communicate this information to ensure patient safety.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. August 21, ; http: In addition, it may have been necessary to evaluate the effect aztm various MRI conditions on the functional or operational aspects of an implant or device 2, 3, 4, 6, American Journal of Roentgenology ; Enter your account email address to request a password reset: It can be scanned safely under the following conditions: No items in cart.

Indeed, part of the confusion that exists on this matter is due to the use coexistence of the newer terminology with the prior labeling terminology. MR Unsafe items include magnetic items such as a pair of ferromagnetic scissors.

New ASTM F2503 2013 Edition released for Marking Medical Devices

Therefore, this important point must be understood to avoid undue confusion regarding the matter of the labeling that has been applied to previously tested implants i.

Example of Ashm labeling information for a medical implant or device.

Thus, over the years, test methods have been developed by various organizations including the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM International formerly the American Society for Testing and Materialswith an ongoing commitment to ensure patient safety in the MR environment Click here to download full list of books.


When manufacturers make a submission to FDA for an existing device, FDA requests the manufacturers of these previously approved devices update their labeling to use the new MR safety terminology. The labeling for medical devices that were appropriately labeled using the historical definitions for MR Safe or MR Compatible, including the list of conditions for which the device has been determined to be safe or compatible, is still accurate.

In order to eliminate this ongoing confusion, in FDA recognized the new set of terms in ASTM F and asks manufacturers to use them for all new products. Summary and Conclusions This Editorial presents current FDA recommendations for MR safety terminology and labeling for implants and other medical devices and provides an explanation of how this information may be applied. This full-length article may be downloaded from www.


It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This lack of understanding may result in patients with implants being exposed to potentially hazardous MRI conditions or in inappropriately preventing them from undergoing needed MRI examinations.

Where direct marking is not practical, this practice recommends that the marking be included in the labeling and on patient information cards see 7.

The magnetic resonance MR environment may pose risks or problems to patients with certain implants and other medical devices primarily due to factors that include electromagnetic field interactions, MRI-related heating, and the creation of artifacts Land Use and Development. Please login to your authorized staff account to use this feature. MR Conditional – an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use.

Any parameter that affects the safety of the item should be listed and any condition that is known to produce an unsafe condition must be described. Standards for medical devices in MRI: Statements such as “intended for use in the MR environment” or similar claims along with appropriate qualifying information are preferred i.

The icons may be reproduced in color or in black and white, however, the use of color is encouraged because of the added visibility The MR terminology, as it pertains to performing MR examinations in patients with implants and other medical devices, has continued to evolve to keep pace with advances in MRI technology 4, 6, Notably, the point of the highest spatial magnetic gradient is the position where translational attraction i.


Specific testing and labeling for active implants e. Search book title Enter keywords for book title search. Therefore, it may be necessary to optimize MR imaging parameters for the presence of this implant.

Enter your personal account email address to request a password reset: Importantly, there is now new labeling terminology, which is associated with expanded labeling information.

Image Artifact MR image quality may be compromised if the area of interest is in the same area or relatively close to the position of the device. Since the size of the artifact for an implant or device may impact the diagnostic use of MR imaging, information is typically provided in the label that characterizes the size and shape of the artifacts associated with certain pulse sequences e.

Labeling information for implants and other medical devices has been compiled and is available in published and on-line formats 2, Are you sure you want to empty the cart?

Today, some 12, ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.

These terms were defined, as follows 6: The FDA is responsible for reviewing the MR terminology and labeling that manufacturers provide to their devices. Remember me for one month. An item may be determined to be MR Safe by providing a scientifically based rationale rather than test data.

There were no books found for the applied search filters. These icons are intended for use on items that may be brought into or near the MR environment as well as in product labeling for implants and other medical devices. This term indicates that the device, when used in the MR environment, has been demonstrated to present no additional risk to the patient, but may affect the quality of the diagnostic information.
