MRI and MED-EL Hearing Implants
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an essential diagnostic tool for doctors. With MRI scans becoming more and more common, there’s a nearly 100% chance you’ll need an MRI in your lifetime.* That’s why we’ve designed our hearing implants to let you have MRI scans without needing surgery to remove the magnet.**
This means there’s no need to plan and undergo surgery and there’s no waiting for healing, so you can use your audio processor immediately before and after your MRI scan. With MED-EL, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re ready for anything that life can bring.
Globally, the use of MRI has risen dramatically because it’s one of most powerful tools for diagnosis.
