Non-clinical testing has demonstrated the Aptis DRUJ prosthesis is MR Conditional. Please consult your physician and make sure they are aware of the following information:
The Aptis DRUJ can be scanned safely under the following conditions:
- Static magnetic field of 3-Tesla or 1.5-Tesla
- Maximum spatial field gradient of 1900-Gauss/cm
- Maximum MR system reported, whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1-W/kg (Normal Mode)
In non-clinical testing, the Aptis DRUJ prosthesis produced a temperature rise of less than 7.5°C at a maximum MR system reported, whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 1-W/kg for 14 minutes of MR scanning in a 1.5-T or 3-T MR system. The image artifact caused by the device extends approximately 60mm from the Aptis DRUJ Prosthesis when imaged with a gradient echo pulse sequence and a 3-T MR system.
