  • Cause and Amelioration of MRI-Induced Heating Through Medical Implant Lead Wires

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B. (2014)
    The RF fields present in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners can induce hazardous heating in patients wearing medical implants. The inherent design and locale of deep brain stimulators (DBS) and spinal cord stimulators ...
  • Electrode Assembly

    Single, Peter Scott Vallack; Scott, Jonathan B.; McCabe, Steven Owen; Parker, John Louis (2020)
    An electrode assembly for an active implantable medical device comprising: an elongated, biocompatible, electrically non-conductive body, having a first portion and a second portion; one or more biocompatible, electrically ...
  • Electromagnetic Techniques to Minimize the Risk of Hazardous Local Heating around Medical Implant Electrodes during MRI Scanning

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B.; Butler, Stephen (2015)
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans are contraindicated for many patients with medical implants. We establish the circumstances that cause, and the resistances required to ameliorate and to eliminate dangerous levels ...
  • Implant Conductor assembly with improved Radio Frequency properties

    McCabe, Steven Owen; Scott, Jonathan B. (2017)
    In one aspect the invention provides an implant conductor lead assembly which includes an electrode lead, and at least one field target conductor. The field target conductor(s) is located adjacent to the electrode lead to ...
