Implantable drug delivery systems in computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging--a comparison between titanium and stainless steel.

Abstract

The effect of implantable drug delivery systems on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was investigated in a phantom and in two patients. The implantable systems of identical construction consisted either of medical grade titanium alloy or stainless steel. Images of a phantom showed artefacts of the stainless steel port in both CT… (More)
