Advanced Bionics HiResolution Bionic Ear System Proven Safe for MRI

Valencia, CA, August 17, 2004 Cochlear implant manufacturer, Advanced Bionics, announced that the HiResolution Bionic Ear Systems HiRes 90K implant is now proven safe for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at 0.3 Tesla and 1.5 Tesla with the magnet surgically removed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted approval this month, while regulatory agencies in Canada and Europe are currently reviewing submissions.

MRI has become a popular imaging tool for physicians, so it is certainly comforting for users of the HiResolution Bionic Ear System to know they have access to this diagnostic instrument, said Doug Lynch, Director of Marketing Communications. Even so, access to MRI is critical to only a very small number of people who require this form of imaging over other proven techniques, such as Computed Tomography Scan (CT Scan). Cochlear implant users are advised to consult with their implant surgeon before any imaging is performed, regardless of the imaging instrument, Lynch added.

MRI safety is only one of the special features of the HiRes 90K internal implant. The implants small size, low profile and robust titanium case is ideal for all ages, even children as young as 12 months. Most importantly, however, the HiRes 90K implant features extremely smart CII internal electronics that are upgradeable without surgery.
