MADRID -- Performing MRIs in patients who have pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) not specially designed for use in that environment appears to be safe, a single-center study showed. Among 118 patients who underwent scans, there were no MRI-related serious adverse events and only minimal changes in the electrical parameters of the devices, according to Oscar Cano Perez, MD, of the Hospital Universitari i Politècnic La Fe de Valencia in Spain.
