Magnetic resonance-guided cardiac interventions using magnetic resonance-compatible devices: a preclinical study and first-in-man congenital interventions.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Percutaneous cardiac interventions are currently performed under x-ray guidance. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used to guide intravascular interventions in the past, but mainly in animals. Translation of MR-guided interventions into humans has been limited by the lack of MR-compatible and safe equipment, such as MR guide wires with… (More)
