Computational-based MRI Thermal Injury Risk Assessment for Patients Implanted With Passive Spinal Devices - Webinar

Using computational modeling and simulation (CM&S) to generate evidence that a medical device meets regulatory standards is evolving quite rapidly. Regulatory agencies such as the FDA are increasingly accepting simulation data as part of the approval process. In this webinar, we will address the use of CM&S to assess the safety of patients with implanted passive devices who must undergo MRI scanning. The goal is to answer the question, “Will radio-frequency field interaction with the implanted device induce unsafe high temperatures in the surrounding tissues?”

Attend this webinar to learn more about the role of CM&S as a tool in generating evidence for MR device safety. The speaker will also cover important topics such as worst-case selection methodology and computational model verification, validation and uncertainty quantification.
