  • New MRI-safe Implant Electrode Design

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B. (IEEE, 2016-01-01)
    Medical implants often prevent patients having Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans because the leads behave as antennas with respect to the RF excitation and cause hazardous heating in neural tissue. This manuscript ...
  • A Novel Implant Electrode Design Safe in the RF Field of MRI Scanners

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2017)
    Patients with medical implants are often unable to receive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnostic treatment, because the conductive leads can concentrate the RF excitation field and generate dangerous heating of nervous ...
  • A Surgical implant conductor with increased radio frequency alternating current resistance

    Scott, Jonathan B.; McCabe, Steven Owen (2016)
    In one aspect the invention provides a surgical implant conductor formed from a length of conductive material which exhibits increased radio frequency alternating current resistance. This conductive material defines an ...
  • Technique to assess the compatibility of medical implants to the RF Field in MRI

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B. (IEEE, 2015)
    The standard technique for determining the compatibility of medical implants to the magnetic and RF fields present in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), requires access to an MRI machine. For implants comprising metals of ...
