To observe the effects of magnetic resonance imaging scans in Vibrant Soundbridge 503 implantees at 1.5T in vivo.
In a prospective case study of five Vibrant Soundbridge 503 implantees, 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging scans were performed with and without a headband. The degree of pain was evaluated using a visual analogue scale. Scan-related pure tone audiogram and audio processor fitting changes were assessed.
In all patients, magnetic resonance imaging scans were performed without any degree of pain or change in pure tone audiogram or audio processor fitting, even without a headband.
In this series, 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging scans were performed with the Vibrant Soundbridge 503 without complications. Limitations persist in terms of magnetic artefacts.
