Summary of Trial:
“A” Patients with a clinical need for MRI and a pre-approved cardiac device undergo diagnostic MRI while being continuously cardiac monitored. Safety data is collected for registry.
“B” Patients who have an implanted cardiac defibrillator and who are pacemaker dependent undergo clinically indicated “brain MRI”
“A” Patients who require a diagnostic MRI and whose devices have been approved for MR imaging
“B” Patient s with an implanted cardiac defibrillator who are pacemaker dependent, have been approved for MRI and who require a diagnostic MRI of the brain.
