BACKGROUND Concerns about women who have implanted or in situ medical devices undergoing magnetic resonance (MR) imaging engender the need for testing. Prior testing of the Copper T 380A intrauterine device (IUD) has been done using MR systems of 1.5 T or less. This study was performed to test this IUD in a MR system of 3.0 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS In vitro safety testing was done via the Copper T 380A IUD using a GE Signa LX 3.0-T MR system. Variables tested included deflection, torque… CONTINUE READING
